Mentors break down cultural boundaries Research points to value of finding common ground Purpose – This paper aims to review the latest management development across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting‐edge research and case studies. Design/methodology/approach – This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context. Findings – Mentoring has become an increasingly significant part of undergraduate programs, replacing the “sink or swim” mentality which prevailed largely a generation ago. For students from different countries and cultures, mentoring is a form of support which can be quite valuable. While anecdotal evidence suggests that it is much appreciated, this is not an area which has been the subject of a great deal of research. Practical implications – The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations. Originality/value – The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to‐digest format. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Development and Learning in Organizations Emerald Publishing

Purpose – This paper aims to review the latest management development across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting‐edge research and case studies. Design/methodology/approach – This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context. Findings – Mentoring has become an increasingly significant part of undergraduate programs, replacing the “sink or swim” mentality which prevailed largely a generation ago. For students from different countries and cultures, mentoring is a form of support which can be quite valuable. While anecdotal evidence suggests that it is much appreciated, this is not an area which has been the subject of a great deal of research. Practical implications – The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations. Originality/value – The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to‐digest format.
