Mentoring as one form of workplace learning has the dynamics to stimulate the personal growth of the Mentor-Protége (MP) pair and organisational development. However, the context where mentoring is implemented has a crucial impact on the MP relationship, mentoring process and outcomes. This article is aimed at exploring to what extent the Chinese culture-related values and the social changes in the modern era influence mentoring practice if it is implemented in the Chinese context. This article is based on one chapter of a doctoral thesis, and it is mainly composed of a critical-reflective literature review, the authors' life experiences, observations and intercultural exchanges.
