AUGUST 9, 2012
When determining the difference between a coach, mentor, and consultant, it is necessary to look at specific roles and functions. Finally, we must determine the scope of the person’s work. Mentors vary slightly from the coach. A mentor’s focus, unlike a coach, is typically on the individual and not on a specific task or performance. A mentor also takes a more general role to the individual, that is, there is usually a less-specific agenda.
