As Plutarch indicated millennia ago,
“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.”
What opportunities exist in your organization to foster the growth of others
Chapter 15 explores both coaching and mentoring, which in some organizations are seen as the same thing. As someone who provides both coaching and mentoring support for organizations through train-the-trainer initiatives as well as direct service provision, it’s important to note the difference.
Coaching is a conversational modality geared to support others to achieve their best work. It’s about supporting others to identify the options available in achieving their most important work. Coaching can be invaluable in terms of providing an opportunity to have a pause in looking at what’s most important.
Mentoring is also important in today’s workspace as it provides the opportunity for a more seasoned person to share their wisdom. This could include providing insights around how things work in an organization, or technical know-how. Mentors usually share their experience with others.
Mentoring is a low-cost opportunity to cultivate relationships and insights in an organization.
