Title:Group differences in the resolve to mentor of potential mentors
Author:Okurame, David E.
Periodical:Ibadan journal of the social sciences (ISSN 1597-5207)
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subjects:on-the-job training
Abstract:This study explored the resolve of potential mentors to assume future mentor roles within the context of ongoing mentoring relationships and gender of mentor, using a sample of 70 male and 70 female potential mentors in Nigeria's work environment. The author hypothesized that the resolve to mentor of respondents with male mentors would be significantly higher than that of those with female mentors or no mentors. He also hypothesized that male respondents in each of the study groups would be significantly more resolved to mentor than female respondents. The study findings failed to fully support either hypothesis. Moreover, while supporting the assertion that individual differences exist in motivation to mentor, the findings do not suggest that the independent factors considered in the study fully accounted for the total variance in resolve to mentor.
