This paper explores the nature of mentoring and contrasts traditional approaches with a developmental format that may be more suited to today's flatter organisations. A definition of developmental mentoring is given plus a model for differentiating between traditional and developmental mentoring, coaching, counselling and managing. Trends facing organisations are summarised and the reader is invited to review developmental processes and consider the impact of various mentoring formats on communication processes within their organisation.
