Explores how formal managers' centralities in both positive and negative networks predict followers' perceptions of their leadership. Incorporates social networks and social ledger theory with implicit leadership theories. Hypothesizes that formally assigned group leaders (managers) who have more positive advice ties and fewer negative avoidance ties are more likely to be recognized as leaders by their followers.
Adds to the small number of mentor-centric studies and offers a unique longitudinal examination of formal mentoring programs. Suggests that as formal mentoring relationships develop over time, mentors begin to use their time more efficiently and the negative effects of cross-gender differences dissipate.
