Let’s take an example: A manager is taking a new position in your organisation as Commercial Director
A coach helps her/him to cope with the change. He works on communication, self-confidence, leadership, facing possible fears
A mentor has a previous experience in a similar role. This will help her/him define his/her strategy, set up a good team and develop his/her network In both cases, the individual gets more efficient and successful.
In conclusion, coaching and mentoring are working together hand in hand. They address different aspects of work efficiency.
Both are beneficial and valuable tools. The organisation benefits from it as well as every individual.
