1:1 Coaching and Mentoring

  • Often spoken as part of the same activity, coaching and mentoring are in fact quite different.
  • Coaching tends to be for a shorter period of time and follows a more structured and formal approach. Often there is a specific goal in mind for the individual being coached.
  • A coach focuses on specific skills and development goals by breaking them into concrete tasks to be completed within a specified period of time. By doing so, your coach can help to guide you to achieve your goal.
  • For many young adults, identifying and prioritising objectives is a big challenge. Coaches address this challenge by helping the young adult to prioritise their goals on the basis of importance. They follow a more formal, structured approach to resolve issues and manage specific aspects of the job.

  • Mentoring is a longer-term process based on mutual trust and informal respect built up between the mentor and mentee.
  • A mentor is someone who offers their knowledge, expertise and advice to those with less experience and by leveraging their experience and skills, mentors guide mentees in the right direction.
  • A mentor helps mentees consider opportunities for career growth, how to gain confidence and improve interpersonal skills. The support is based on the mentor’s own experiences and learnings, which makes them more reliable figures in the eyes of the mentees.
