The value and use of mentoring and the concerns associated with achieving work-life balance have captured the attention of many. Separately both the use of mentoring and achieving improved work-life balance have been seen as effective means of enhancing performance and competitive advantage. To this end, many different approaches to mentoring and to achieving work-life balance have been tried, with varying levels of success. This paper explores the idea of bringing the two debates together, and hypothesises that some elements of mentoring and the mentoring process may serve to reduce or minimise the impact of many work related issues in the work-life balance equation.
