    Abstract

    The authors describe a recent cross-disciplinary mentorship whorkshop they facilitated in Tonga, which formed one of 11 such workshops they conducted throughout the Pacific island region. The workshop was part of an ongoing leadership initiative co-sponsored by several educational organizations. The purpose of the workshop was to facilitate the cohort of Tongan leaders to begin to develop an adaptive mentorship approach that would not only fit the Tongan context, but that would be both generic and adaptable enough to apply to the variety of professions represented. The authors invite other scholars interested in mentorship to initiate similar collaborative efforts.
