Coaching or Mentoring: There Is a Difference

Coaches and mentors are both in the business of helping individuals achieve their goals.

Coaching

Coaching focuses on taking a client’s experience in the workplace and helping them develop strategies and action plans that will positively affect their professional development. A coach holds the client responsible for finding answers to their own challenges and defining their own path forward.

Mentoring

Mentoring focuses on transferring knowledge from an experienced professional to another employee for the purpose of their career development. A mentor assesses and advises mentees, and they may help the client build their network or focus on role-specific knowledge based on the mentor’s wealth of experience. Mentoring is ideal for organizations looking to pass along institutional and professional knowledge from one generation to another.
