Joint Meeting of Memphis Chapters of ATD and SHRM
In "The Science of Mentoring: Best Practices for Organizations and Mentoring," Dr. Kraiger translates research on formal mentoring programs and interviews of expert mentors to provide practical advise on how to establish and maintain effective mentoring programs, as well as how mentors can better facilitate the learning of their protégés.
Dr. Kurt Kraiger is a Professor and Chair of the Department of Management, Fogelman College of Business and Economics, University of Memphis. He received his B.A. in Psychology from the University of Cincinnati in 1979, and his Ph.D. in Industrial-Organizational Psychology from The Ohio State University in 1983.
Dr. Kraiger conducts research on learning in ill-structured environments. Ill-structured environments are learner-centric. For example, in mentoring relationships, mentors and mentees mutually determine developmental outcomes. Dr. Kraiger is a Fellow and former President of SIOP, and a fellow of the Association for Psychological Sciences. He is also a Co-Founder and Principal Psychologist for jobZology, a career development software company. An expert in the science of training, his research and presentations offer empirically-supported recommendations for improving L&D practice. He has edited three books on training, published over 65 scholarly papers, given nearly 40 invited talks, and made over 120 scientific presentations.
