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.
