Preparing workers to compete in the knowledge economy requires a new model of education and training .Mentor-based professional development has been recognized as effective and popular capacity-building tools in the areas of leadership development. They are often mentioned as the key elements of good capacity –building practice .Yet despite their current status, many practitioners are unclear of what mentoring programme really involve, where and when they work. The paper addresses these questions to demystify the concepts and practices of mentoring in leadership development. It makes contribution to the continuing discussion on mentoring as a process of transferring knowledge for professional development.
