Difference between Mentor and Coach Mentor Usually a more senior person Assists with career guidance Role model, guide Often uses coaching skills Coach Goal Oriented Encourages learning Provides feedback and suggestions Builds a positive environment
The Informational Mentor (the sage on stage) Draws on experience Acts as a role model, leads by example Provides a step by step to problem solving Communication is more one way – advice and information Teaches, praises and helps the person get started
The Guiding Mentor (Guide on the Side) Makes suggestions and persuades Probes and draws out ideas Makes the person accountable and ensures they stay on track Takes time to understand the impact of particular course of action
The Collaborative Mentor (Collegial team player) Uses a joint approach to decision making and problem solving Expects both parties to make a significant contribution to the relationship Discusses issues openly and frequently Utilises brainstorming Works with trainee in a collaborative fashion
The Confirming Mentor (Empathetic Sounding Board) Listens empathically Clarifies goals, directions and ideas Encourages individual decision making Believes individual is responsible for own decision making Acts as sounding board Waits to be consulted
Setting Goals for a Coaching Session Be specific – What results are expected out of the session? What needs to be done? Be measurable – How will you know the goal has been met? Be action oriented – In what way will the goal be carried out? Be Realistic – Is the goal achievable? Time frame – When is it to be achieved?
The Grow Model of Coaching Builds on a series of questions that form the basis of each coaching session. Each session is designed to move the person towards an identified goal.
Practicing the GROW Model Goals – Set goals, write them down, what does the trainee want out of the session? Reality – Invite them to tell you their story about the goals Options – Brainstorm options to move towards goals Wrap up – Identify steps to reach goals, write action plan
