Mentoring and Life-coaching. What are they?
Mentoring is using expertise gained from lived experience to help guide other people.
Life-coaching supports personal and professional growth and the achievement of reaching goals.
It is self-initiated and directed with objective support.
Positive emotions and outlooks may be a natural outcome of -life-coaching, but the primary focus is on creating actionable strategies for achieving specific goals in one’s life.
The focuses in a coaching relationship are self-discovery, action, accountability, and follow-through.
Life-coaching does not include advising and certainly not counselling. It concentrates on helping people to see their desires and needs more clearly and in reaching objectives.
Though with Love-coaching (romantic love), it is normal to sometimes give advice.
