Mutuality perspective

It is very interesting that the latest literature review on developmental networking from Journal of Management has a focus on the ‘mutuality perspective’. The relational view seems to have now come to the forefront of this body of research, in the human resources field. This is highly relevant to a primary emerging theme from my own PhD research, that early career academics primarily make use of informal information to learn as they build their developmental networks, by engaging in mutually supportive relationships of a multilayered nature. There is an emerging global focus on fostering reciprocal relationships which are ‘mutually supportive’, in that they provide benefits in the forms of information, learning and support to the early career academics and those people who act as their mentors or developers.
