Project Overview

Mentoring encompasses many terms and approaches often included in leadership discussions. Yet, it is a distinct and somewhat unique leadership discipline. As examples, there exists both formal and informal mentoring relationships. Additionally, mentoring, often viewed as strictly a one-to-one activity, can actually impact the entire culture of an organization (Megginson, et al., 2006). The positive emotions, attitudes, development, and performance outcomes experienced by mentees and mentors are of benefit to organizations. High levels of organizational commitment and low turnover intentions among mentees and mentors reduce costs for organizations associated with recruiting, selection, and training (Megginson, et al., 2006). 

The purpose of this project is to better understand the role mentoring plays in successful leadership practices. An anonymous survey was created as the primary research tool. The results from the survey, coupled with information synthesized from an extensive literature review, form the basis of the research.  For the purpose of this project, mentoring is defined as a one-on-one developmental process where an expert (the mentor) assists a less-experienced person (the mentee) in his/her personal and professional growth.

This website was created as part of an applied masters degree project by Joseph Staples, under the direction of Dr. Kevin Ellsworth, affiliated with the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at Arizona State University.
