What is the difference between a ‘coach’ and a ‘mentor’? How can practitioner’s and clients assess their benefits if there is little or no general understanding as to their meaning? This book offers answers by describing the different theoretical models available for coaching and mentoring and by looking at how these models are applied in practice.
Robust theory is backed up by practical advice. Numerous practical exercises, case studies, templates – including a Training Workshop template – learning partner handouts and a questionnaire for selecting prospective mentors are included. Advice is also included on sensitive areas such as the boundary between mentoring or coaching and therapy, and the desirability of supervision and codes of practice.
