Current pressures in the workplace demand efficient and effective time and effort expenditure with results that meet job requirements. Mentoring has become attractive in a variety of professional development situations. A theoretical understanding may not ensure success; implementation may be problematic and the full potential may not be fully realised. The model described here provides a framework for individuals and their mentor and for groups with mentors learning within a research environment. Its foundation is a collegia! approach to change by supporting the development of a trusting and collaborative work culture. It is based on reflective practice; engaging the participants in understanding the concept of reflection in adult learning, in applying the theory into practice and in critical evaluation of outcomes for continuous improvement. © 1998, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
