Abstract

This paper explores the concepts of mentoring and learning communities in both corporate and educational settings. In particular, it looks at how such concepts are being applied in these settings and what outcomes can be expected. Research has shown that having a mentor can change an individual's life. By further formalizing the mentoring process and forming learning communities, true exchanges of ideas can occur, and the learning process can be enriched for all members within the community. When traditional boundaries are crossed and models of mentoring and learning communities are examined from both business and educational settings, multiple models for forming mentoring programs and learning communities can be found and shared.
