  • Is Mentoring Like Coaching? Ask: “Is mentoring and coaching the same thing?” One description states that coaching is the process of facilitating the performance, learning, and development of another person.3 The coach is responsible for directing and aligning the members of a team to achieve a goal; therefore, the coach is also responsible for leading the development of the team members.Coaching is different from mentoring because the mentoring process is led by the learner and is less skills-bas ed. A good mentoring relationship is identified by the willingness and capability of both parties to ask questions, challenge assumptions, and disagree. The mentor is far less likely to have a direct-line relationship with the mentee, and in a mentoring relationship this distance is desirable. Mentoring is rarely a critical part of an individual’s role, but rather an extra element that rewards the mentor with fresh thinking as well as the opportunity to transfer knowledge and experience (wisdom) to a new generation.
