Coaching vs. Mentoring

By Jaxson

  • Coaching

    Coaching is a form of development in which an experienced person, called a coach, supports a learner or client in achieving a specific personal or professional goal by providing training and guidance. The learner is sometimes called a coachee. Occasionally, coaching may mean an informal relationship between two people, of whom one has more experience and expertise than the other and offers advice and guidance as the latter learns; but coaching differs from mentoring by focusing on specific tasks or objectives, as opposed to more general goals or overall development.

  • Coaching (noun)

    The process by which someone is coached or tutored; instruction.

  • Mentoring (noun)

    An arrangement by which one person mentors another.
