Coach or Mentor: What’s the Difference?
The Leader’s Intent Podcast Featuring Guest Bill Fournet
Zig Ziglar once said, “A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could. ” Are you ensuring your team members have the support they need to succeed?
In the quest to develop our teams, we often turn to coaching or mentoring. These tools are often treated similarly, when in fact each one has its own purpose and role. On this episode of the Leader’s Intent podcast, I join host Ronnie Stephens to talk about the differences between a coach and a mentor. We also touch on some common mentoring philosophies and questions.
