Coaching sessions are formal, direct, structured and skill based, the aim is to break down barriers to unlock the client’s potential building resilience so that they view certain areas of their life from a different viewpoint and perspective, the focus being on hitting specific targets on a pathway to achieving to their potential, and applying several methods to help themselves thereafter, because coaching is based on a short term arrangement.
Mentors are there for advice, moral support and guidance at any stage of their clients journey, the mentor educates from knowledge and insights from their own personal experiences, which makes the mentor empathetic to their clients needs, and assisting with their interpersonal skills, confidence, self worth and discipline.
