Finney S et al. – The originality of this research is found in the application of a matrix mentoring approach. Typically, mentoring programs match one mentor with one mentee. A team of mentors worked with each of the mentees and engaged in exposing the participants to a range of competencies. The literature suggests that managerial competencies in a complex setting, like healthcare, need to be diverse. This research presents one possibility for building such a range of abilities.
