Cultural Values and Acceptance of Mentoring
Endeshaw Azaj, Analyst, Ethiopia
Do you have empirical evidence about the correlation between cultural values and effectiveness of mentoring?
I think that cultural values may affect work habits emanating from the mindset of a given individual. But the effectiveness of mentoring refers to the result not the input. THis effectiveness depends on the ability and mental capacity of the mentor himself.
Readiness of the mind is up to the person to be mentored. I thought that no one hated learning. Therefore, no one can conclude one's cultural value negatively affects his/her mind's ability to accept learning/mentoring.
The human being by his very nature needs guidelines for his career, his personal life etc.
