What is Mentoring?
Mentoring is half-way between Coaching and Consulting. Mentoring is focused on the individual, not on the organization. Whereas in coaching the client identifies his own solutions by himself, in mentoring he will receive upfront proposals for a given situation from the Mentor. The technical approach is quite similar to Consulting (review of current situation, identification and validation of solutions, implementation and review).
Mentor <-> Executive Coach
Because the Mentor focuses on the Individual, he may decide to also behave as a coach: by facilitating the self-generation of solutions, he ensures that the client owns and implements them. There may also be a need for soft-skills development, for example for pubic speaking. If the client needs to make a presentation to a particular audience, working on self-confidence with the use of adequate coaching tools will be of further help.
