Dissertation working title: Exploring the structural, cultural and agentive factors which enable or constrain the value creation possibilities of mentoring for organisations in the South African environmental sector

Research interests: The structural, cultural and agentive factors that enable or constrain the value creation possibilities of mentoring for organisations in the environmental sector.

Our ability to live sustainably in a changing climate in the future depends on our future leaders. The potential of enabling young professionals to become environmental leaders in their workplaces through mentoring is a subject I feel needs greater attention and understanding.

Main research questions:
 
1. Is mentoring a value creating proposition for organisations in the environmental sector?

2. What structural, cultural and agentive factors enable or constrain the value creation possibilities of mentoring for organisations in the environmental sector?

Keywords: mentoring; organisations; internships; social realism; value-creation
