Coaching vs Mentoring

In this video, you will learn the difference between Coaching and Mentoring.

# Points in Common
Coaching and Mentoring are used to nurture employees’ skills and achieve business objectives.

Both are used to challenge and help individuals change the way they work, identify and solve problems, make decisions, overcome obstacles, and implement change.

HOWEVER…
There are 6 fundamental differences between coaching vs mentoring:

1. FOCUS

Coaching is mainly concerned with developing skills and strategies to achieve shorter-term performance objectives.

Mentoring focuses on personal growth and the continuous improvement of an individual’s capability and potential.

2. FUNCTION
Coaching is to help an individual achieve specific objectives.

Mentoring is to develop mentees to a point where they can make mature and intelligent career decisions for themselves.

3. RELATIONSHIP

In a coaching, the coachee is usually assigned to the coach, who assumes the responsibility for improving performance.

In mentoring, the mentee often chooses the mentor.

4. AUTHORITY
The coach is generally in authority and is in charge of managing the objectives to be achieved.

Mentor is more highly ranked within the organization’s
business hierarchy but authority is tempered.

5. REWARD
A coach’s rewards are usually the form of value from the coachee’s improved job performance. Coaches don’t usually expect to learn from their coachees.

Mentoring is a more reciprocal relationship. Both the mentor and mentee learn from each other and grow professionally.

6. AREA OF ACTIVITY
Organizations use coaching when employees need help to achieve specific objectives or perform given tasks.

Organizations use mentoring for broader purposes, such as developing managerial talent.
