In the last post, I wrote about a 2-Word Coaching Tool that works incredibly well. That post also introduces a brief look at the differences between coaches and mentors.
In today’s post, I’m listing the differences between coaches and mentors in more detail, and then cover six big-picture traits that are true of both.
As leaders, we are shaped, even “imprinted,” by the model of training that impacted us the most.
For example, all five of the men who poured into me were more mentors than coaches. They were all good at coaching for sure, but they were mentors by nature. That has a lot to do with why I lean toward mentoring, even though I do a lot of coaching as well.
