What is the difference between coaching and mentoring?


“Many thanks for delivering yet another very successful coaching session – the evaluation comments are a real accolade to your session, with many participants stating how accessible and useful to use in their working and personal lives. Great comments! Your involvement is always much appreciated.”
Cindy Howard, Education Lead, Leadership and Management Development, Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust

“The session was really informative and fired up some real enthusiasm in the audience; we now need to work on how we take it forward! My sincere thanks for delivering an informative, stimulating session.”
Lisa Leverton, Operational Lead NED & Chesterfield Out Patient Physiotherapy & MSK, Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust

“Thank you very much indeed for facilitating two excellent events yesterday. The feedback is overwhelmingly positive. I really enjoyed it and found it useful and will definitely put the techniques into practice.”
Hannah Reed, Coaching and Mentoring Project Manager, Guy's and St.Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust

“It was really helpful. I have already put some of the positive challenge into play with, so far, good effect!”
Caroline Elston, Clinical Director for Allergy, Respiratory, Critical Care, Anaesthetics and Pain Therapies Clinical Academic Group

“The discussion was really helpful in focussing my mind on what I know, but keep choosing to ignore. I will take these suggestions on board and ensure I implement most if not all of them. For me it was useful to discuss with someone who has worked in operations.”
Carl Holland, Deputy COO, Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust
