Coaches versus Mentors

Make your 2013 a better year than 2012.  We’re already one month in, so how are you doing with your big ideas:

  • Stumped by the same old problems?
  • Run out of motivation and inspiration?
  • Has the optimism at the end of 2012 expired already?

We think we can help.  Have you considered a coach or a mentor?

Coach or Mentor: What’s the difference?

Coaching and Mentoring are not the same thing. One of the best definitions of this difference is ‘a coach helps you decide which mountain you want to climb, by when and why. A mentor shows you how to get from the second base camp to the third.’

Simply stated, a Mentor is someone who has experience in your desired field or an associated one. They’ve either been there and done that; or they have done something similar or know people who have.

Coaches help you find the best way for you to achieve what you want; using your vision, your motivation and your ability to ensure that you will make it happen in your own way – because YOUR ambition and circumstances are unique.

A coach will set your goals with you and help you identify where you might need a mentor, so it is a good idea to have both. The choice, however, is yours.

To help that decision we have arranged for five dynamic coaches from different disciplines to answer all your questions about what they do and how they could help you; from the comfort of wherever you are.
