Coaching and Mentoring

Empowerment through Coaching and Mentoring

Despite the fact that the terms coaching and mentoring are often used interchangeably, they are different processes. Executive coaching attempts to develop professional skills through instruction, while business mentoring facilitates learning and leadership development through guidance and advice.

Though they differ in definition, both coaching and mentoring create an environment for growth. In a family business, effective coaching and mentoring can play an essential role in shaping motivated, confident successors and ultimately assist in the perpetuation of a successful family enterprise.
