There are many over-lapping skills between Coaching and Mentoring but there are also differences.

 “Coaching is a process that enables learning and development to occur and thus performance to improve.  To be a successful Coach requires knowledge and understanding of process as well as the variety of styles, skills and techniques that are appropriate to the context in which the coaching takes place.”

Eric Parsloe, The Manager as Coach and Mentor

 “Mentoring is off-line (more informal) help by one person to another in making significant transitions in knowledge, work or thinking.” (traditionally longer term and more informal when compared to Coaching)

Clutterbuck, D. & Megginson, D, Mentoring Executives and Directors
