The influence of mentoring in dyadic relationships on the leadership development of women college presidents
The purpose of this study was to examine and describe the influence of mentors in dyadic relationships on the leadership development of women college presidents. To fully understand the influence of mentoring on leadership development, a case study approach was used to originate empirical data to provide additional knowledge about women's leadership development. The case study was conducted through in-depth interviews with three women college presidents, their mentor(s), and their protégés. A process model of cross-generational leader development was generated from the empirical findings of the study and the model includes three specific mentoring strategies—Modeling, Challenging, and Supporting as well as two key bonding stages—Developmental and Peer Bonding.
