What’s the Difference Between Mentoring and Coaching, Anyway?

It’s understandable that you might think mentoring and coaching are similar or even the same thing. But they’re not.

I often get the question, “what is coaching?” or “what is the difference between mentoring and coaching.”

Mentors are trusted advisrs who impart wisdom, knowledge and guidance gleaned from their experience and values, in an effort to develop a less experienced individual.

Coaches help individuals set and achieve goals and strategies, to meet outcomes that will bring them success and fulfillment.

The chart below includes some typical mentoring and coaching distinctions.

Since coaching was coined a profession in the 1980s, numerous coaching niches have emerged. Some niches include life coach, business coach, health coach, relationship coach, confidence coach and so on.

I’m a life and executive coach working with executives and rising leaders such as yourself.

My executive coaching is designed to help you close the gap from where you are today to where you want to be in the near future. It’s aimed at transforming the quality of your working and personal life, and achieving epic living. The ultimate goal is for you to fear less, be more confident, emotionally intelligent and effective.

Are You Ready for Executive Coaching?

In previous posts, I talked about [epic living] and [releasing “the struggle”] – that is, the consequences of maintaining the status quo in your life.

Maybe you read those, took in the supplemental recordings and videos, and decided that it’s time for a change. You’re ready to stop settling for less because it’s comfortable and finally break through that life, career, business, relationship plateau that’s had you feeling stuck.

Well first of all, YESSSS!!! I want you to exhale the old, inhale the possibility of what’s next, uncover your signature strengths, step into your uniqueness and own your life.

But! (And yes, this is where I’m going to pitch you something.)

Getting clear on what you want, setting your intentions, creating action steps, and then DOING the work is not for the faint at heart. I know firsthand that this is HARD WORK.

It’s hard because sometimes we need help being honest with ourselves and facing the truths we’ve been avoiding.

It’s hard because even when we know the problem, we don’t always see the path through it. It can seem impossible or overwhelming when you’re doing it alone and don’t want to burden others with your stuff.

It’s hard because life happens and when we have to finally address what we’ve put off, we can lose our motivation.

Well, here's help. Having your back and guiding you through the hard stuff is what I do. And I’m pretty good at it. I’m sitting on ready, excited to help you get clear, confident and courageous to kickstart the next chapter in your life.

Are you ready? The first step to working with me is booking a free no obligation consultation.

I know exactly how you’re feeling. I’ve been where you are and know what it will take to get out of it. I’ve created a step-by-step process to help you go from stuck to unstoppable, and ultimately achieve epic living.

And it all starts with our first chat. Have questions before booking, just email me.
