What’s the reason for asking this question?  It’s simple – the skills that every Coach develops as part of their training can be used by Mentors.  So what makes a Mentor?

In March, 2015 I presented a webinar for the IIC&M where I asked and answered the following questions:

  • As a coach can I be a mentor?
  • As a mentor can I be a coach?
  • What are the differences between coaching and mentoring?

This article will not cover the same depth of ground as the webinar did, but will give you some guidelines.  Members of the IIC&M, of course can watch the webinar.  Please do email me if you have questions.
