What is the difference between coaching and mentoring? Coaching normally involves the refinement of knowledge, skills, and abilities. The person being coached has a certain amount of expertise, and the coach refines that expertise. Mentoring is a developmental relationship that occurs in one of four phases: Youth, academic, workplace, or reflective, that creates understanding. This understanding is something the mentee cannot gain alone, but only through sharing experiences with a mentor.
Why do you differentiate between management and leadership? Dr. John Kotter wrote that "Management is about coping with complexity; but leadership is about coping with change." Management is about the day-to-day, week-to-week, and month-to-month operations that requires systems, processes, tactics, techniques, and procedures to keep complex organizations operating smoothly. Leadership is about coping with the changes that occur in operations, and creating a vision for the future.
