Coaching or Mentoring?

Are you clear on what you're looking for? This one fundamental question often gets overlooked, and yet, it can significantly impact your experience. Let's dive into the vital distinction between Coaching and Mentoring.

Coaching involves your thoughts, your situation, and a coach guiding you through powerful questions to find your own solutions. Coaches refrain from giving advice.

Mentoring, on the other hand, entails the mentor sharing their thoughts and experiences, telling and advising based on their knowledge and wisdom.

The catch? Sometimes, what's sold as coaching turns out to be mentoring, creating confusion for both parties. This is why hiring a qualified coach or mentor is crucial—knowing what you're receiving ensures a more meaningful and effective experience.

However, both coaching and mentoring play powerful roles when applied at the right time (and you can also experience a blend of both with Denise!)
