NEL, Johan. Mentor as maestro - from minor to major: the role of transfer between mentor and mentee. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2011, vol.67, n.3, pp. 128-136. ISSN 2072-8050.
This article takes a glance at the role played by a mentor. The emphasis is on the authentic mentoring process. The metaphor of music is used to illustrate the different keys in which people experience life at large. The hypothesis poses that the transgression takes place during the interaction between the mentor and mentee. As in music, lives can be modulated into another, major key, which may lead to a life of abundance.
