Coaching vs. Mentoring

So what's the difference between coaching and mentoring?


  • Focuses on both organizational and individual goals and addresses workplace performance

  • Uses questions and feedback to facilitate the coachee’s thinking and practical learning

  • Personal issues may be discussed but the emphasis is the impact of them on their work performance

  • Impartial, focused on improvement in behavior


  • A process to support and help develop knowledge, skills, thinking, and behaviors

  • Focuses on the person, their career, and support for individual growth and maturity

  • Passing on personal experience

  • Provides guidance, advice, recommendations, experience, knowledge, and wisdom. The mentee can choose what they do

  • A relationship for encouragement, advice, and befriending. Biased in favor of the mentee
