“A coach has some great questions for your answers; a mentor has some great answers for your questions”. Coaching and mentoring both exist for the same purpose: helping others grow, develop and reach their full potential.
Typically, a mentor will share their experience and advice based on their past experiences. It’s entirely up to the mentee on what they do with the advice.
A coach shares accountability and works with a coachee to define measurable, time-bound goals, set weekly or fortnightly tasks and tracks progress with a coachee.
Coaching is a process and partnership that allows you to accelerate forward, especially when you’ve been stuck. By realigning your momentum, your life becomes easier, more peaceful and more fulfilling.

As the one being coached, you are responsible for the commitment to achieve the agreed upon action steps and for your own success.
Yes. One of the most important elements in coaching is confidentiality. Everything said in the coaching session remains there, unless you formally request otherwise.
