What are the differences between coaching and mentoring a person?
There are differences and here are few of them:
- Coaching is generally short term but mentoring is generally long term
- Coaching is about certain task but mentoring is about individual's development. Mentoring work can involve personal agenda as well like work-life balance etc.
- Coaching is generally about certain task so it does not require special attention on individual but mentoring requires it. Mentoring require a design to work on each individual.
