This paper introduces the concept of "transformational men to ring," an alternative to traditional mentoring, as a tool for developing transformational leaders. Transformational mentoring differs from traditional mentoring in its emphasis on risk-taking rather than refuge-seeking and its encouragement of self-sacrifice rather than self-promotion. Our conceptual model identifies key mentor actions, anticipated mediators, and expected outcomes of the transformational mentoring process. We argue that current organizational leaders will need to address both cultural and structural barriers to transformational mentoring if they wish to support the development of future transformational leaders in their organizations.
