Coaching and Mentoring - What's the difference?

18 September 2017

‘Coaching and Mentoring’ is a phrase heard far and wide in the world of professional learning and development. As they are usually banded together, it’s vital to be aware of the differences between them and when it's best to introduce dedicated programmes of each.

It's important to be know the differences between coaching and mentoring in order to implement successful campaigns of them. These differences can be subtle, so we’ve broken down six of the key distinctions in a professional context.

Eliesha Training has developed a new online course for the ILM Level 7 Certificate in Executive Coaching and Mentoring. It’s delivered via our very own Learning Management System and is the equivalent of 6 days of workshop material. All learning support material and assessment plans will be released online during the course of this 12-month programme. If you require a shorter intensive solution, we can provide them as well.

The Level 7 is designed for senior managers who want to develop their expertise or credibility in this field or HR/OD professionals who are looking to establish coaching on an organisational level.
