There seems to be a good deal of confusion about the differences between mentoring and coaching. The coach is typically someone in the same reporting line as the coachee who, through skilful use of structured questions and other techniques, helps the coachee to develop new skills or behaviours, solve problems and make decisions.
The mentor is usually an experienced person outside the mentee's reporting line, who uses a number of different techniques to develop the mentee; those skills include direct advice-giving, something which the coach does not generally do. Coaching may be a subset of mentoring, but mentoring cannot be a subset of coaching.
In this intensive, practical and highly interactive one-day programme, you'll learn the skills of mentoring – everything you need to begin to mentor other people with confidence. We'll use a variety of techniques, including freeze-frame role play and realistic case studies, to bring the techniques to life.
