Coaching Vs. Mentoring

Course Overview

Mentoring is a process that follows coaching. Coaching makes a person equipped with the skills required for a job whereas mentoring is on-the-job process. It helps a person practice the skills learned, enhance the skills, and learn new skills to be future ready. Hence, coaching is a short-term relationship whereas mentoring is a long-term. Coaching is always task oriented whereas mentoring is relationship oriented. It is all about reaching a stage where the mentor can easily share the real issues influencing the trainee. On the other hand, coaching can be implemented immediately on any particular topic. This course will help you acknowledge the difference between coaching and mentoring and make you learn when to use them.
