In Coaching

What is the difference between Coaching and Mentoring?

Coaching is designed to achieve a specific, goal, skill, or purpose. It is planned, action-focussed and has a specific, achievable outcome.

Mentoring is based on the development of the individual and the building of skills, usually at a slower, more meandering pace. The relationship is built on trust and shared experiences over time and covers a wide array of outcomes.

What are the parallels between Coaching and Mentoring?

A coach or mentor acts as an accountability partner, who works with an individual with their best interests in mind. Both Coaching and Mentoring are not about teaching, instructing, training or telling a person what to do.  It’s about asking the right questions, which help evoke the individual to discover the right answer for them.

What are the benefits of Coaching and Mentoring?

Coaching is aimed at achieving a specific outcome or goal. The benefit of having a coach means you do not have to go it alone and the likelihood of achieving the goal increases with a coach by your side.

Mentoring happens at a slower pace, enabling the gradual development of skills or the future you desire, along with the support and gradual building of the relationship with the mentor. This is beneficial if you need to work at a slower pace, wish to look at things more internally, or more over the longer term.
