coachingWhen discussing the implementation of professional career growth plans and workshops for a company, you might find yourself questioning the difference between mentoring and coaching. Whether you want to choose a coaching or mentoring program, it is important to understand the similarities and the differences between the two to be able to make the suitable choice for your company.

Coaching and mentoring may seem virtually the same since they are both development-focused technics, yet, when discussing them further, a few differences arise between the two, mainly on the personal and business aspects. In this article, we will explain the differences between coaching and mentoring and what we offer you in terms of each to help you find out which one of our programs best caters to you and your business’ needs.


Mentoring is defined as the act of educating and guiding an employee of a company to expand their skillset further and achieve success in their career. A mentor explores various skill sets with you, shares their business expertise, and helps you grow your business.


The more personal of the two, coaching delineates the process of bettering a person’s obstacles to ensure more successful growth in their career. A coach guides you to achieve your goals and overcome any difficulty or complication you might have in your career or company.
