This research examined linkages between mentor leadership behaviors (laissez‐faire, transactional contingent reward, and transformational), protégé perception of mentoring functions received (career development and psychosocial support) and job‐related stress of 204 mentor–protégé dyads. Results of Partial Least Squares analysis revealed that mentor transformational behavior was more positively related to mentoring functions received than transactional contingent reward behavior, while mentor laissez‐faire behavior was negatively related to mentoring functions received. Both mentor transformational behavior and mentoring functions received were negatively related to protégé job‐related stress. The relationship between mentor transformational behavior and protégé job‐related stress was moderated by the level of mentoring functions received. Results are discussed as they relate to researchers and practitioners who are becoming interested in finding ways to develop organizational members and allay job‐related stress.
