What is coaching and mentoring?
Coaching and mentoring is different from training, and it’s not counselling either. Coaching focuses on present and future, where counselling focuses on the past. Coaching is a dialogue between the coach and the client aimed at helping the client resolve problems, set goals, plan action steps using their own skills and knowledge. The assumption made in coaching is that the client as the answers they need within themselves. It is through coaching questions and conversations that these answers are unlocked and the client is able to move forward. Coaching requires no previous knowledge of a subject and situation to be effective. Coaching focuses on present and future, where counselling focuses on the past.
Mentoring is different from coaching and allows the coach/mentor to share their own skills, experience and knowledge with client to allow them to learn and master the application of these new skills etc. For me it is like the old master/apprentice relationship where skills are developed “on the job” rather than a theoretical classroom situation and is therefore a more practical approach. Mentoring requires knowledge and experience of the coach/mentor.
Both of these methods are highly effective and empowering for the client as it develops their skills to be applied to future situations.
The Coaching Couch also provides Life Coaching. Life coaching aims to help and empower the client set and achieve personal and professional goals – including excelling their career, changing their career, becoming happy and fulfilled in the home, and achieving their ambitions. Goal setting and goal achievement are our specialty. We can help you define, plan and achieve your personal goals and help you to overcome any obstacles come up along the way.
Our coaching programmes are an hybrid of training, coaching and mentoring. First we teach you the knowledge you need, then we mentor you in developing the skills you need and finally we provide coaching to support you in applying the skills and knowledge. Coaching programmes can be delivered one to one or in groups. We can either provide these to your personally or to your organisation so you can get the most out of your staff and volunteers.
