What is Coaching and Mentoring Training?

Let us begin by defining our terms. What is coaching and mentoring?

Coaching and mentoring are two distinct forms of teaching:

Coaching is a form of teaching, based upon giving personalised instruction that will improve the learner’s skills, knowledge, technique and confidence.

Mentoring is a different form of teaching; this time, based upon “role modelling”; teaching by example; exemplifying the specific attributes the mentor wants to inspire in the learner.

This unique one-day Coaching and Mentoring Training Course is designed to help you, help others.

You will learn specific skills such as clear communication skills, reasoning skills, suggestive questioning, giving constructive feedback, performance management, motivation and confidence-building techniques.

To be a coach and a mentor is a privilege and an honour. It also requires a high degree of skill.

This course is intended to help you, to help others actualise their full potential.

The course content was interesting and up to date. I have picked up some extremely useful techniques and information. The trainer's presentation was well-paced and easy to understand.

Course Overview - Coaching and Mentoring Training

We have split this course into four sections.

Definitions of coaching and mentoring

The first step to knowledge is to gain a clear conception of the subject. We need to define exact meanings of the terms “coaching” and “mentoring”. What do they have in common? How do they differ? What skills do they require from us?

We will give you our definitions, and we will ask you for yours. We will create a template for each skill set, coaching and mentoring. Then we will use the templates to assess our current strengths and weaknesses.

Self-analysis / personal learning outcomes

We analyse our current strengths and relative weaknesses against the list of coaching and mentoring skills.

Our aim is twofold, to play to our strengths and to eliminate our weaknesses. Eliminating weaknesses is the most important, because it only takes one obvious error or omission to ruin our performance as coach or mentor.

We will ask you to write down your personal learning outcomes, for the course.

How to develop specific Coaching skills

Now we get into the nitty gritty details of the coaching skills. We have main headings and subsets.

Main heading: Clear communication. Reasoning skills. Emotional intelligence.

Subset skills: Suggestive questioning, constructive feedback, performance management, confidence building.

How to develop Mentoring skills

Now we turn our focus onto the more profound form of teaching: Mentoring. You have heard it said, “Actions speak louder than words”. It is true.

If you tell your trainees to do X, but they see you doing, NOT-X, then all your earlier training is wasted. It is not enough to “talk the talk”, we must also “walk the walk”.

Mentoring and role modelling are more profound because they contain strong moral, ethical and character-based components. We must consistently BE what we want to SEE. We will investigate the moral, ethical and character-based qualities we need to be effective mentors.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Become a better coach and mentor and help others to achieve their goals
  • Use questions to guide people; rather than instructions to tell them
  • Help others to set and achieve worthwhile goals
  • Encourage others to build plans that will achieve their goals
  • Develop more confidence in yourself and others
  • Give "constructive feedback” in a way that inspires positive change
  • Become a Role Model: Mentors often teach by role modelling
