Abstract:Quality mentoring assures beneficial outcomes to all stakeholders in the relationship but scanty research in this area has stalled the development of models that facilitates this objective. The present study examines the influence of mentor power, dyadic trust and length of mentoring relationship on mentoring support quality. Data were collected through the questionnaire method from 257 bank employees in Ibandan, Nigeria who are proteges. Results show that high educational attainment and marital status are significant demographic factors in mentoring quality. Mentor power, dyadic trust, and length of relationship have significant positive relationships with mentoring support quality, jointly accounting for sixty percent of its variance. The only significant interaction effect is found between dyadic trust and length of relationship. It is recommended that management intervention aims at sustaining relationships and altering negative perceptions of both mentor power and dyadic trust to foster quality mentoring. Future research should utilise concrete measures and examine if the variables of study relate differently for men and women. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract]
