What Is The Difference Between Mentoring & Coaching & Why Would I Need One?
Like in fitness, sports or even business, having a mentor or coach has proven to be an electric way to act on a new venture. So, what are the differences between mentoring and coaching?
Mentors act as advisors, people who share their hard-won wisdom to provide insight and guidance as challenges happen along the journey. A mentor is like a sounding board, they can give advice but the partner is free to pick and choose what they do.
Coaches are brought in to help anticipate and tackle specific industry challenges. They’re prescriptive and proactive by nature, actively participating in strategizing and co-creating successful outcomes with their clients.
A coach is trying to direct a person to some end result, the person may choose how to get there, but the coach is strategically assessing and monitoring the progress and giving advice for effectiveness and efficiency.
This is just what we do!
