Fingerprint for Success

Dec 5, 2020

So what’s the difference? I talked to professional coaches and mentors to really understand the key difference between coaching and mentoring.

If you’re reading this, you’ve likely noticed how tough it is to distinguish between coaching vs. mentoring. Both are necessary for our personal and professional growth. Both provide support. Both help us reach our full potential. And to make matters more complicated, the words “coaching” and “mentoring” are often used interchangeably.
