According to Kram’s mentor role theory, satisfaction with mentoring and mentorship quality are key indicators of effective and successful mentoring. We contribute to mentoring research by demonstrating the relative importance of mentorship quantity, mentorship quality, and satisfaction with mentoring to the prediction of job satisfaction, affective commitment, and turnover intentions. Survey data from 472 faculty members revealed the importance of that satisfaction with mentoring in that it mediated the effect of mentorship quality on job satisfaction and turnover intentions, and it explained variance in three job attitudes above and beyond mentorship quantity and quality. Implications for organizational mentoring are discussed.

This article advocates for the wider use of relative importance indices as a supplement to multiple regression analyses. The goal of such analyses is to partition explained variance among multiple predictors to better understand the role played by each predictor in a regression equation. Unfortunately, when predictors are correlated, typically relied upon metrics are flawed indicators of variable importance. To that end, we highlight the key benefits of two relative importance analyses, dominanc...

We believe that journal reviewers (as well as editors and dissertation or thesis committee members) have to some extent perpetuated misconceptions about common method bias in self-report measures, including (a) that relationships between self-reported variables are necessarily and routinely upwardly biased, (b) other-reports (or other methods) are superior to self-reports, and (c) rating sources (e.g., self, other) constitute measurement methods. We argue against these misconceptions and make re...

The quality of the relationships that mentors forge with their proteges is assumed to significantly affect the success of mentoring interventions. Building on previous research, this study examined the association between relationship qualities and protege functioning. Multiple reporters (e.g., mentors, proteges and teachers) were used in a prospective research design spanning eight months in Israel’s largest mentoring program—Perach. The sample consisted of 84 proteges ranging in age from 8 to ...

Based on a sample of students and their faculty mentors, this study examined how the fit between mentor and protege levels of commitment is associated with both partners’ relationship satisfaction. Mentoring dyads were classified into groups according to fit between partners’ commitment, and relationship satisfaction was compared across groups. Overall, results provided partial support for our hypothesis that mentors and proteges report greatest satisfaction when commitment levels are mutually h...

Hypotheses involving mediation are common in the behavioral sciences. Mediation exists when a predictor affects a dependent variable indirectly through at least one intervening variable, or mediator. Methods to assess mediation involving multiple simultaneous mediators have received little attention in the methodological literature despite a clear need. We provide an overview of simple and multiple mediation and explore three approaches that can be used to investigate indirect processes, as well...

ABSTRACTAs a Human Resource Development (HRD) intervention, mentoring assists individuals in their career development. However, it is still unknown if mentoring could enhance individuals’ early career decision-making. Moreover, the literature lacks longitudinal research that investigates the role of frequency of contact in mentoring relationships. Therefore, this study examines whether frequency of contact between mentor and protege influences protege mentoring outcomes, namely, improvement in c...

Teaching Focused Faculty (TFF) roles are growing across Canada and around the world, raising questions about how to understand the nature of faculty work and how faculty in non-traditional work distributions feel about their work. Our study is the first attempt to survey TFF members’ work and job attitudes at large research intensive universities in Canada. Our data contribute to the literature on the nature of faculty work, by revealing that TFF engage in a wide variety of work, including teach...

This study evaluates the role of self-efficacy between mentoring and its outcomes namely, relationship quality, communication satisfaction, and personal learning. It also examines the mediating role of relationship quality, communication satisfaction, and personal learning between mentoring and job performance. Besides, this moderated mediation relationship is also evaluated. Data has been collected from 276 employees working in banking sector in Jammu & Kashmir (J&K, India). The confirmatory fa...

This study provides insight into the factors that influence satisfaction with an Internet-based practitioner–student mentoring relationship that is part of an undergraduate business school curriculum. Practitioner mentors are especially important because they can help student proteges learn the skills needed for their professional development, encourage the formation of professional networks, and enhance the proteges’ satisfaction with their education. In this study, we examine a number of facto...

Work performance is of the essence in any organization. In an educational institution, teachers’ work performance plays a significant role in making the goals of the institution are achieved. Underperforming teachers have been an issue in Maktab Rendah Sains MARA (MRSM) since its establishment. Based on some literature, mentoring programme has been suggested to improve work performance. MRSMs have been exposed to information on mentoring and its benefits yet the implementation is by far disappoi...

Formales Mentoring spielt in der medizinischen Ausbildung, genauso wie in anderen Branchen, eine essenzielle Rolle. Richtiges und gutes Mentoring lasst Studierende erfolgreicher, effektiver und zufriedener sein. Im Gegensatz zu Programmen in Unternehmen setzen studentische Mentoring-Programme sehr fruh in der Karriereplanung an. Insbesondere Medizinstudierende schlagen unterschiedliche Wege nach Studienabschluss ein. Dies stellt eine grose Herausforderung fur formale Mentoring-Programme dar. An ...
