The Differences Between Coaching & Mentoring

It’s understandable that you might think mentoring and coaching are similar or even the same thing. But they’re not. Both warrant consideration in the workplace. Here are five differentiators that we think are important.

But be sure to download our FREE white paper that discusses the complete list of differences (all 25 of them!) between coaching and mentoring.

Differentiator #1: 

Coaching is task oriented. The focus is on concrete issues, such as managing more effectively, speaking more articulately, and learning how to think strategically. This requires a content expert (coach) who is capable of teaching the coachee how to develop these skills.

Mentoring is relationship oriented. It seeks to provide a safe environment where the mentoree shares whatever issues affect his or her professional and personal success. Although specific learning goals or competencies may be used as a basis for creating the relationship, its focus goes beyond these areas to include things, such as work/life balance, self-confidence, self-perception, and how the personal influences the professional.

Differentiator #2:

Coaching is short term. A coach can successfully be involved with a coachee for a short period of time, maybe even just a few sessions. The coaching lasts for as long as is needed, depending on the purpose of the coaching relationship.

Mentoring is always long term. Mentoring, to be successful, requires time in which both partners can learn about one another and build a climate of trust that creates an environment in which the mentoree can feel secure in sharing the real issues that impact his or her success. Successful mentoring relationships last nine months to a year.

Differentiator #3:

Coaching is performance driven. The purpose of coaching is to improve the individual’s performance on the job. This involves either enhancing current skills or acquiring new skills. Once the coachee successfully acquires the skills, the coach is no longer needed.

Mentoring is development driven. Its purpose is to develop the individual not only for the current job, but also for the future. This distinction differentiates the role of the immediate manager and that of the mentor. It also reduces the possibility of creating conflict between the employee’s manager and the mentor.

Differentiator #4:

Coaching does not require design. Coaching can be conducted almost immediately on any given topic. If a company seeks to provide coaching to a large group of individuals, then certainly an amount of design is involved in order to determine the competency area, expertise needed, and assessment tools used, but this does not necessarily require a long lead-time to actually implement the coaching program.

Mentoring requires a design phase in order to determine the strategic purpose for mentoring, the focus areas of the relationship, the specific mentoring models, and the specific components that will guide the relationship, especially the matching process.

Differentiator # 5: 

The coachee’s immediate manager is a critical partner in coaching. She or he often provides the coach with feedback on areas in which his or her employee is in need of coaching. This coach uses this information to guide the coaching process

In mentoring, the immediate manager is indirectly involved. Although she or he may offer suggestions to the employee on how to best use the mentoring experience or may provide a recommendation to the matching committee on what would constitute a good match, the manager has no link to the mentor and they do not communicate at all during the mentoring relationship. This helps maintain the mentoring relationship’s integrity.

When to consider coaching:

  • When a company is seeking to develop its employees in specific competencies using performance management tools and involving the immediate manager
  • When a company has a number of talented employees who are not meeting expectations
  • When a company is introducing a new system or program
  • When a company has a small group of individuals (5-8) in need of increased competency in specific areas
  • When a leader or executive needs assistance in acquiring a new skill as an additional responsibility

When to consider mentoring:

  • When a company is seeking to develop its leaders or talent pool as part of succession planning
  • When a company seeks to develop its diverse employees to remove barriers that hinder their success
  • When a company seeks to more completely develop its employees in ways that are additional to the acquisition of specific skills/competencies
  • When a company seeks to retain its internal expertise and experience residing in its baby boomer employees for future generations
  • When a company wants to create a workforce that balances the professional and the personal

Is Meditation Push-Ups for the Brain?

 TWO YEARS AGO, researchers at UCLA found that specific regions in the brains of long-term meditators were larger and had more gray matter than the brains of individuals in a control group. This suggested that meditation may indeed be good for all of us since, alas, our brains shrink naturally with age.

Now, a follow-up study, published online in the journal NeuroImage, suggests that people who meditate also have stronger connections between brain regions and show less age-related brain atrophy. And significantly, these effects are evident throughout the entire brain, not just in specific areas. Eileen Lueders, Ph.D., a visiting assistant professor at the UCLA Laboratory of Neuro Imaging, and colleagues used diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to look into the structural connectivity of the brain. They found that the differences between meditators and controls are not confined to a particular core region of the brain but involve large-scale networks that include the frontal, temporal, parietal and occipital lobes and the anterior corpus callosum, as well as limbic structures and the brain stem.

“Our results suggest that long-term meditators have white-matter fibers that are either more numerous, more dense or more insulated throughout the brain,” Dr. Lueders says. “We also found that the normal age-related decline of whitematter tissue is considerably reduced in active meditation practitioners. It is possible that actively meditating, especially over a long period of time, can induce changes on a micro-anatomical level.”

Meditation, however, might not only cause changes in brain anatomy by inducing growth, but also by preventing reduction, Dr. Lueders said. “That is, if practiced regularly and over years, meditation may slow down aging-related brain atrophy, perhaps by positively affecting the immune system,” she says.

There is a “but.” While it is tempting to assume that the differences between the meditators and nonmediators constitute actual meditation-induced effects, there is still the unanswered question of nature versus nurture. “It’s possible that meditators might have brains that are fundamentally different to begin with,” Dr. Lueders says.

Still, meditation appears to be a powerful mental exercise with the potential to change the physical structure of the brain at large, she says.

Et si on découvrait le Tai chi chuan?

Le Tai chi chuan est extrêmement populaire en Chine, où on le pratique dès l’aube,dans les parcs et les jardins.
