This is a very popular F.A.Q. and rightfully so. Although they both support growth and improvement, coaching and mentoring, each individually present unique relationships style, tools and approaches.
Coaching is short-term, clarity-objectivity-goal-and-task oriented guidance, while mentoring is usually long-term ongoing work or apprenticeship and expert guidance –from an experienced and achieved mentor- focused on development, integration and improvement.
Coaching helps another person to improve awareness, to set and achieve goals in order to improve a particular behavioral performance, while mentoring helps you shape behavior helping define or re-define your mindset, values and approaches as you become who you want to be and embrace a better lifestyle, greater success and entrepreneurial evolution.
The great benefit of coaching is that you are very likely to see quick, positive results as an outcome. This is because coaching is engaging allowing people to learn and adopt new habits easily. As soon as a coaching session ends you can implement a new practice.
Mentoring is a supportive progressive conversation, mentor talks with a person who has identified his needs prior to entering into a mentoring relationship. The emphasis is on active listening, providing information, making suggestions, and establishing connections. Coaching is structured and specific support, coach talks to a person, identifying what he needs, and developing an action plan.
Having a coach or mentor doesn’t make you weak or less capable, it makes you smart, focused and results/success oriented. Having expert guidance helps you fulfill knowledge and experience gaps, obtain objective feedback, sharpen skills and see the big picture with a wider and clearer lens.
Both coaching and mentoring are for winners who seek to go to the next level. And both processes are entirely devoted to you – your issues and the attainment of new vision and goals, constantly challenging and encouraging you to work on issues that need improvement.
