Many confuse the terms mentor and coach. There is a basic difference, and it comes from the degree of involvement of the leader. While both use similar skills and approaches, a mentoring relationship is typically a longer-term relationship focused on personal growth and directed by the mentee. A coaching relationship is generally a shorter-term relationship designed to improve immediate performance and skills, with learning directed by the coach. During this session verbalize the difference between coaches and mentors, demonstrate the traits and techniques of great coaches, and gain experience in creating coaching plans and following through on personal development action plans. After concepts and techniques are proposed and explored, the class will be broken into pairs and asked to develop a coaching plan for each other. The pairs will develop a relationship that will extend beyond the workshop to 30-, 60-, and 90-day checkpoints against their plans.
