Mentoring and Coaching are often confused as being the same thing by a different name but there are clear distinctions between the two.
Mentoring is relationship, rather than task or skill focused, and is a long term commitment between two people with the intention of developing the lesser experienced person for both their current and future role. Its focus goes beyond skill development, and may include such areas as: work/life balance, networking opportunities, self perception or career development and planning.
Competent mentors are one of the biggest assets for an organisation and that is why we work with you to develop your internal mentoring capability. We deliver programmes to train and equip your mentors and mentees with the skills and techniques that they need to gain the most benefit from the relationship. This means we prepare mentees to get the most out of a having a mentor, and develop mentors who are confident to handle a range of mentoring challenges and plan successful outcomes.
