Abstract

A survey of 1,250 executives reveals two-thirds of the respondents have had a mentor. Mentor relationships have become more common in business during the last twenty years. These relationships are most likely to occur during the first fifteen years of an executive''s career and can develop into enduring friendships, in spite of the competitiveness of the working world. Executives who have had a mentor are on the average better educated, receive higher compensation and express greater satisfaction with their work than their peers who have not had a mentor.
