Positive mentoring practice being an example to be followed is one form of knowledge-management, therefore it matters a lot what mentoring protocol is being fulfilled within the organizations. The features of a successful mentoring process have been examined this year within the framework of a qualitative research in light of the practice of Hungarian organizations. The results of the research show that apart from the corporate culture built on confidence, the participants’ motivation for knowledge and for learning can also have significant effect on the positive outcome of the process as well as the way how mentoring can consistently fit into the system of corporate knowledge-management.
