I have often found mentoring to be as much benefit to myself as a mentor. An anthropological take is to view mentoring as a form of enculturation where outsiders become insiders and learn the rules and customs and importantly tacit knowledge is shared in order to become a full member of the new group.
The vast majority of organisations would benefit from understanding how formal and informal mentoring can impact positively and negatively on organisational culture and therefore on business outcomes.
