Q: What is the difference between coaching and mentoring?

1 Answer

Nov 22, 2019

Mentoring is a long-term process based on mutual trust and respect. Coaching, on the other hand, is for a short period of time. Mentoring is more focused on creating an informal association between the mentor and mentee, whereas coaching follows a more structured and formal approach.

Coaching helps the team’s performance get better, whereas mentoring is more specific to individuals and the specific problem that a team is trying to solve where you transfer your knowledge and experience that is relevant to that specific problem.
