Coaching vs. Mentoring: Do you know the difference?
How do leaders know when it's time to coach and when mentoring is more appropriate?
I had the privilege of sitting on a panel at an event entitled 'Inspiring Mentors, Connecting New Brunswick'
last week. The event w
as sponsored by The Financial and Consumer Services Commission and, given the capacity attendance, was hitting on a hot topic - the importance of mentorship to businesses, communities and individuals.
I jumped at the opportunity to be part of the conversation - our mandate at Vision Coaching is to help educate the business community - and leaders - on what coaching is and how it both compliments and differs from mentoring.
We've found the most effective way to educate leaders is to have them participate in an interactive workshop where they see demonstrations of - and ultimately experience - coaching and mentorship skills. These workshops quickly highlight the power of both mentoring and coaching when used properly.
