What is Coaching and Mentoring?

At its most simple, being coached is spending time talking with someone else about you, your challenges and goals in life. By discussing them with someone who is an “impartial cheerleader for you”, you gain a much greater understanding of yourself, where you want to be and how you can start getting there. The coach acts as a “critical friend” who challenges your ideas and assumptions through questioning and challenging you through questions like “how do you know that is true?”.
As we all adjust to the new reality and way of living with the corona virus, coaching and mentoring have become an essential skill, especially for mangers and leaders working with colleagues in different ways. As we all start to work and live differently we need to unlock our skills and reframe our thinking to help us deal with the changes we face.
