Protege Anxiety Attachment and Feedback in Mentoring Relationships
Allen, Tammy D.; Shockley, Kristen M.; Poteat, Laura
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v77 n1 p73-80 Aug 2010
A model focused on protege anxious attachment and feedback in mentoring relationships was tested with a sample of matched doctoral student proteges and their faculty mentors. Results show that protege anxious attachment was associated with less feedback seeking and less feedback acceptance. Protege feedback acceptance was associated with both the quality and frequency of feedback provided by the mentor. Frequency, but not quality of mentor feedback, was associated with protege scholarly productivity. Results underscore the value of focusing on specific behavioral aspects of the mentoring process. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
