We are often asked what's the difference between hiring a mentor vs. a coach for our sales or leadership team. Our approach is blended with consulting to understand the need for growth and mentoring the team members to success using our years of expertise in sales and leadership.
Mentoring - a mentor is a wise and trusted guide and advisor. The mentor is the teacher that shares their experience while bringing the “mentee” up the ranks. A coach is not necessarily the subject matter expert in order to help develop the client.
Mentoring usually lasts a year or longer.
Consulting – a consultant is an expert who is called on for professional or technical advice or opinions. They are relied on to understand the problem and present solutions. Consulting is unlike coaching because with pure coaching, the answers come from the client.
Coaching - according to the International Coach Federation coaching is defined as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.” The coach is the subject matter expert at coaching, not necessarily the subject matter expert of the client’s coaching topic. Coaching is generally short term.
