Why are mentoring and coaching complementary?
Sometimes I hear from clients that they had a mentor, who gave them valuable advice and information, but did not help them reach their goal.
Do you know why?
Well, because the real agent of change is YOU and no one else. You can get all the advice in the world, no one knows better than you what is right for you and how you can best serve the people and causes you believe in.
And there’s more. You may have a strong will and ability. You probably also have a bunch of negative voices telling you that you are NOT smart, experienced, connected, confident, knowledgeable, etc. enough, and you find all sorts of strategies to keep you from moving forward and getting results.
So what does a coach bring to you that a mentor won’t necessarily ?
A coach is there to help you bring out the best in yourself, the vibrant, wise, strong and courageous part of you that you have always been.
Without your bothering negatives voices.
Together, we will learn to listen to your inner strength, without ignoring the wise advice of experts, giving you the confidence to make the right choices.
