To anyone who wants to gain a foundation in mentoring, and managers and team leaders who want to develop or refine their mentoring skills.
Mentoring Vs. Coaching
Coaching and mentoring are alike in many ways and have some purposes in common.
Both types of relationships are used to nurture employees' skills and achieve business objectives.
Both approaches are used to challenge and help individuals change the way they work, identify and solve problems, make decisions, overcome obstacles, and implement change.
Coaching and mentoring sessions are also similar in that each involves a series of meetings or encounters that make use of focused discussions about goals and objectives.
Between sessions, the individual practices new techniques, approaches, and working styles. In later meetings, the individual's experiences may be discussed and any arising issues or consequences are analyzed.
