Learn to recognize mentoring opportunities and the skills of the Mentor

Coaches often find themselves in mentoring situations during coaching engagements. It is not a planned event but as client trust is established the coach learns more about limitations of key personnel. The idea of key people is central to potential gains for the organization. Mentoring programs are often seen as an extension of coaching but there are measurable differences between coaching and mentoring.

Identify Mentoring Opportunities within a Coaching Engagement
  • Coaching focuses on performance and developing current job-related skills
  • Mentoring is about preparing an individual for a future role
  • Coaching is typically done by the immediate supervisor
  • Mentoring is often done by someone with no direct relationship to the mentee
  • Coaching is a process of achieving objectives of the coach
  • Mentoring is about setting and developing objectives of the mentee
  • Coaching is a short-term continuous process — continuous = never-ending
  • Mentoring is a long-term continual process built on mutual respect and trust — continual = start and stop
  • Coaching a formal and structured process of development with a direct report
  • Mentoring is an informal connection between a senior trusted advisor sharing perceptions, knowledge, and key relationships with a mentee or protégé
