The difference between Coaching and Mentoring

Coaching is usually short-term and focused on achieving specific, immediate goals or areas for development.
Coaching is structured in nature and meetings are scheduled on a regular basis where the agenda is set by the client. Coaching can benefit any aspect of a person’s life, personal or work related. A coach steers and is strategic in assessing, challenging and monitoring a clients progress. Coaching is impartial, focused on improvement and effectiveness.

Mentoring can be more informal and meetings can take place as and when the mentee needs some guidance and or support.
With mentoring the agenda is set by the mentee with the mentor providing support and guidance to prepare them for future educational challenges, roles or specific skills development. Mentors can be more ‘directive’ and provide specific advice where appropriate – a coach would not offer their own advice or opinion, but help the individual find their own solution.

Action Learning offers a powerful learning method of enquiry and problem solving, used by teams and groups for organisational and business development and improvement.
It involves a process which addresses real problems, deemed important and critical, this process promotes curiosity, inquiry, and reflection that converts into action offering a solution through a commitment to learning
