Coaching and mentoring are increasingly popular ways for business people to receive advice and guidance on a one to one basis. They offer the route to understanding methods and processes to improve performance.
So what is the difference between coaching and mentoring?
Mentors have an in-depth understanding and experience of the type of business that the person they are mentoring is working in. As a result they bring specific knowledge to the issues being faced and provide focussed guidance on this basis.
A coach works with the person being coached to develop their practice, build on their capabilities and maximise their potential. The coach understands the general skills and techniques that need to be applied to the specific role and works with the person being coached to develop them.
