Training for the novice entrepreneur: exploring the possibilities of mentoring
This article, although not recent, is interesting because it reflects on both the value of mentoring for entrepreneurs and elements of learning through the work of different authors. The article refers to analytical grids to classify the learning observed in fairly extensive studies.
Focus groups found that mentees were likely to have cognitive and affective learning but no skill-related learning. Thus, the novice entrepreneur is likely to
increase their knowledge and management skills, clarify their business vision, and identify more opportunities. In addition, on a psychological level, business mentoring allows for the development of self-image and a sense of self-efficacy, while providing some comfort to the entrepreneur in difficult times.
The article also provides a rich scientific bibliography.
