Difference Between Coaching, Mentoring and Counselling

While mentoring, coaching and counseling can all be tools to support the development of employees, they differ in some significant ways. It’s important to understand the differences between these frameworks to ensure your leadership style is as beneficial as possible to your team members. The type of support you offer as a leader may depend on the characteristics of your team members, the way they prefer to learn and the way they learn most efficiently. For example, while some employees may thrive more in group coaching activities, others may gain more value from a one-on-one mentoring relationship.

What's Coaching?

Coaching is the process of inspiring and motivating employees to reach their potential and perform as well as possible. Commonly, coaches encourage people to develop and work toward goals that can help them with their professional growth. Coaching methods often involve prompting thought, dialogue and creativity. The purpose of coaching is typically to change and improve the way employees think and behave, optimizing their performance and productivity levels. It is also to teach employees skills like communication, leadership, teamwork and stress management, leading to overall improvements in an organization.

What's Mentoring?

Mentoring is the process in which an experienced professional regularly offers wisdom and advice to a junior employee. Managers can be mentors or assign mentors to their employees, but employees may also find their own mentors in people they admire and want to emulate. Mentors act as professional advisors and sources of information to their mentees, answering questions and addressing concerns. Along with professional relationships, mentees may also build lasting personal connections and friendships with their mentors. Leaders may choose to promote mentorships in their organization to provide employees with personal help and foster a positive work environment.

What's Counselling?

Counseling is the process of providing emotional support to people, helping them overcome mental health challenges like stress, depression, anxiety and grief. While a manager can’t provide certain counseling services without a license, they may still be able to offer help if their team members are experiencing difficulties. For example, if an employee comes to them with an emotional problem, managers can direct them to the proper resources for counseling support. Managers should also plan for what to do and who to contact if an employee seems to pose any danger to themselves or others.

Counselors tend to be experts in practicing empathy, understanding and respecting the perspectives and experiences of others. They usually ask questions, listen and help people explore their pasts to discover the causes of their feelings. Licensed counselors can provide diagnoses of a person’s medical conditions and offer treatments for them. They can also provide advice on how to manage emotions and cope with difficult situations. The purpose of counseling is typically to enhance a person’s emotional strength and/or adjust certain behaviors.

Life Coach vs Leadership Executive Coach

While there are some very stark distinctions between both forms of coaching, in general, both a Life Coach and an Executive/Leadership Coach works with a client to help them move forward with a firm objective and purpose. The difference between the two forms of coaching comes in the area of their emphasis. Executive coaching has the added dimension of the client’s professional standing being inherent to the relationship and the outcomes. If you are not hired by the executive directly you will be working on goals set by the executives supervisor. At the end of the day though, a coach hired to work with an executive will come across issues and areas related to the executives overall life over the course of a coaching contract.

Life Coach

A Life Coach generally works with an individual on a personal level. They may help clients understand personal goals and objectives and discover the things that are holding them back in their effort to meet these goals and objectives and ultimately create a life in alignment with their values. The life coach often helps clients find balance in their lives, build positive relationships or improve their outlook. Success in this coaching relationship is measured by the happiness and fulfillment of the client. The coaching agenda is not mixed with a business agenda, life coaching is all about the individual.

As a Life Coach the focus of the client’s needs are personal in nature. Rather than providing professional development in how to be more effective in a work role, life coaches often help with personal life challenges. Some thoughts or ideas for exploration with a life coach may include:

  • Where do you want to be a year from now? Five years from now? Ten years from now
  • What do you want more of in your life?
  • What does success mean to you?
  • What do you want to be remembered for at the end of your life?
  • Are you moving in the direction of your dreams?
  • What would you do if you had no fear?
  • Are you enjoying what you do on a daily basis? What needs to change?
  • What could you do right now that would make the biggest difference in your life?

It’s important to note that Life Coaches are paid less than what Executive Coaches are paid and this varies in different countries. Perhaps the biggest factor for the difference in pay is that 61% of Life Coaching clients pay for their own coaching, while only 10% of Executive Coaching clients do the same Sherpa Survey.

Leadership Executive Coach

By comparison, an Executive, or Leadership Coach addresses the professional aspirations of the client. An individual in a leadership role has a responsibility to many people (shareholders, subordinates, the public, etc.) Because of this level of responsibility the executive coach may suggest that the leader focus on specific measurable outcomes as they impact their role in the business. For this coaching relationship, the measurement of success is directly related to the client’s professional achievements.

An Executive Coach might best be defined as a coach who works with leaders who also have a personal life. Some thoughts or ideas that come into play in this relationship might include:

  • What areas of your professional life are working in a positive manner?
  • What areas could use improvement?
  • What type of professional feedback is affirming to you as a leader?
  • What do you consider to be a “win” in your work life?
  • What beliefs do you have that serve you well as you pursue future career goals?
  • What beliefs do you have that are not serving you?
  • What do you need to do to take your career to the next step?

In Summary

The rapport between the Life Coach and client as well as the Executive Coach and client is based on a level of trust that grows stronger over time; however, the considerations of the coach/coachee relationship are vastly different. While both a life coach and an executive/leadership coach work to guide or facilitate the client in meeting specific goals, the executive coach takes into account the organizational culture and business climate. Additionally, both a life coach and an executive coach seek to help their clients reach a deeper insight and understanding, but an executive coach works to help the client align this understanding with an organizational or business agenda or process.

6 Popular Coaching Models that Professional Coaches Use

Coaches don’t tell you what to do. They don’t give you a long list of things to tick off. Instead, you will be asked to analyse, reflect and then take action as coaching is a learning conversation. The intended result of a coaching process is to enable you to better achieve success in one of more areas of your personal and/or work life. We’ll look at the 5 main types of coaching.

#1 GROW Model

Let’s start our list of major coaching models with the GROW Model which is the most popular and widely used in coaching.  Created by Sir John Whitmore in the 1980s, the GROW model provides a basic understanding of how to structure your training sessions. This model does not focus on anxiety, depression, or negative thoughts, but rather gives a framework for helping your clients.

Goal:

We all are familiar with what goals mean. It means before starting a training session with your coachee, you should set a goal or target. In simple terms, you should be clear about what you want to achieve. It provides the primary floor for the entire training session.

Current Reality:

After your client comes up with a goal, it’s time to access their skills, knowledge, strengths, and abilities. Their current reality. It will help to find a relation between their goals and skills. You can use scaling techniques (like using a 1 to 10 scale) to help them define their skills and strengths.

With this info, decide the best course of action. They should attempt to use their imagination to picture what it would feel like to already have their goals met.

Options:

Now, it’s time for you to help your client explore different options available to them. Explore with them their skills and goals. Help show them possible ways they can achieve their goals using their skills. This is also a great time to honestly assess their skillsets and introduce new skills they should consider learning.

Will:

This is the final step, which is a wrap-up stage. Your client should now be able to understand what path they should go down and how to develop new skills. Wrap up with them and measure their will or desire to finish what they started.

#2 OSKAR Model

The next of the major coaching models the OSKAR Coaching Model is based on a solution-focused approach. Thus, it develops a robust framework that helps your coaching sessions to be more focused on solutions than on problems.

Outcome:

This is a goal-setting stage where you take as much time as needed to understand what your coachee or client wants to achieve. It helps to even ask what they are expecting to get from this coaching session. Help them to visualize their goal or goals.

Scaling:

After understanding a clear picture of their goal, use scaling techniques to measure their capabilities and skills. Use a scale from 1-10 to measure their skills. Especially those they will need to obtain their goal.

Know-How:

It’s time to establish an understanding as to what skills will help them to achieve their desired outcomes. This stage is like ‘digging for gold’ and requires a lot of time and resources.

Affirm and Action:

Motivate your client by providing them with positive reinforcement. Explain their positive points and strengths. Moreover, encourage them to take action.

Review:

You may have already guessed it. Yes, this requires giving feedback to your client. Explain all of the areas they are good at and where they need improvement. This takes a gentle forcefulness. They need to feel the need to grow.

#3 FUEL Model

The second of the major coaching models was developed by John Zenger and Kathleen Stinnett, the FUEL model is another useful coaching model. It involves the use of open-ended questions instead of leading questions. With this model, there is no mention of limiting beliefs or distorted thoughts. Similar to the GROW model, it also consists of four steps. These differ slightly, however, and include:

Frame for Conversation:

It defines how you can start or frame your conversation. It sets the road on which your conversation will go later on. It’s like getting on the same page with your coachee or client. When you can both see things the same communication is clearer.

Understand the Current State:

As its name suggests, you need to as a coach, peer deep inside and identify the current state of your client. This will help you understand where your client stands and what guidance he/she might possibly need. You must learn to use and ask open-ended questions at this stage.

Explore the Desired State:

Ask your client what they want to achieve or what is their desired state. When you know what your client wants it is easier to guide them to it. It is extremely important that you have your client use simple and clear language to describe what it looks like, feels like, sounds like to have reached their desired state. We often fill in blanks left by the clients, with our own definitions. Be sure not to fall into this pattern.

Lay Out a Success Plan:

Finally, it’s time to develop a success plan according to the individual’s needs to help them achieve their targets. It is important to know the skills of the client before trying to create a map to their goal. It only makes sense to create a path they are capable of undertaking.

#4 CLEAR Model

The fourth major coaching model, developed by Peter Hawkins CLEAR model shares many similarities with the GROW Model. This coaching model helps clients with transformational change and helps with transformational coaching.

It includes five stages:

Contracting:

Start with developing a clear understanding of what your client’s desired outcome is and what he is expecting to achieve through coaching. Moreover, set rules for your coaching as well. Be clear about what you expect, and what you intend to offer. This minimizes confusion later.

Be sure you have your clients spell out what they see as successful completion of their goals and even coaching.

Listening:

This is the hardest part of this model, it involves actively listening to your client. Ask questions and let your client explain their point of view without any interruption. Do not try to come up with a response before they have finished talking.

Exploring:

At this stage as a coach, you have to explain to your client their emotional connection with the current state. Use mindful and present coaching techniques and ask a lot of questions so their point of reference becomes more transparent.

Action:

Encourage and motivate your client to take action. It is important that you know what motivates them. If you are unsure, you should stop and ask them again what they actually want. Listen for cues about their cognition style. People will often reveal their understanding style when they ask if you “see what they are saying”, “hear what they mean”, “if you follow them”, etc… Use the same phraseology with them to reach them better.

Review:

Give them honest feedback regarding their performance. This can be both negative and positive. Most people are a mix of good and bad. Try to use a compliment sandwich. Try hard to find two positive things and place a negative thing in the middle making a sandwich. This is also a great time to suggest where they could improve, and give them techniques to practice if requested.

#5 ACHIEVE Model

The fifth ACHIEVE is a coaching and mentoring model developed by The Coaching Centre (Dembkowski and Eldridge, 2003), building upon the foundations of the GROW model, inspired by leading thinkers such as Alan Fine, Graham Alexander and John Whitmore. It is posited as a methodical and systematic framework for coaching, but with added flexibility and feedback-reactivity compared with GROW. It was observed that leading executive coaches intuitively went above the framework outlined by GROW, so a new cyclical ACHIEVE model was formulated to accommodate this responsive plasticity and to attain measurable and sustainable results for their clients. This model is intended to increase trust between client and coach by increasing understanding of the methods involved in goal-setting and problem-solving.

Assess the Current Situation:

During the first stage of the process, the client or mentee is encouraged to think deeply about their current situation. Increased self-awareness of their state and surroundings allows the mentee to reflect on their current issues and goals and to contextualise any future actions. It also increases understanding of how the current situation came about, which actions they took to reach this point, and how they initiated emotional responses in others.

Creative Brainstorming:

This stage is designed to broaden the mentees perspectives and develops the foundation for behavioural change and creative solutions to current challenges. Sometimes, individuals’ perspectives can narrow when under stress – resulting in “tunnel vision” – the goal of the brainstorming stage is to open their mind and examine solutions that were not previously visible to the mentee. Mentees are moved towards a broader perspective and are unhooked from repetitive, unhelpful cycles of behaviour. Creative brainstorming is the foundation for goal-setting and action-planning.

Hone Goals:

In stage 3, the mentee develops specific goals from alternative solutions and suggestions which evolved during stage 2. SMART (specific, measurable, accurate, realistic, timely) goals are developed and refined here by feedback between coach and client. Often, individuals struggle to identify what they do want – rather, the focus is on what they do not wish to happen. It is the aim of the coach to ensure that this negative thinking does not occur, and instead, the emphasis is on achievable goal formation.

Initiate Option Generation:

At this stage in the process, the immediate steps in order to achieve the goals must be considered. The client should be aided in developing an array of possible options, rather than focusing on finding a single “right” way to act. Indeed, the volume of options at this stage should outweigh any focus on the quality or achievability of a single action.

Evaluate Options:

At step 5, the actions and options generated during the previous stage will be assessed, scrutinised and prioritised. The coach begins to guide the client towards a focus, or a small number of foci. It is crucial that aims are well-defined, in order to make goals appear within reach to the mentee. Though the coach may be purely executive, they may encourage that the client also applies these steps to their private lives – an aspect often not considered or analysed methodically by the mentee.

Valid Action Programme Design:

The aim of stage 6 is to put the options into action. Pragmatic approaches will be developed to break down overall goals into smaller chunks. This is when the client/mentee will commit to the plan via achievable steps of action with clear deadlines, often in writing or illustrated form. The challenge is often applying newly developed knowledge and skills from coaching and training into a workplace or other scenario, and it is the job of the mentor to guide their mentee into such a position where they have the confidence to apply themselves.

Encourage Momentum:

The final stage of ACHIEVE is to encourage momentum – both towards goals – and between coaching sessions. Until goals have been met, it is often difficult for individuals to remain motivated, and it is, therefore, the role of the coach to maintain encouragement and keep achievable goals within sight. The smallest steps and achievements must be met with encouragement and a sense of fulfilment. Small, sustainable goals and changes are the way to remain on the path towards a far larger, more distant aim.

#6 STEPPA Model

The last in our list of the major coaching models is an excellent coaching model known as the STEPPA Model. It is based on the assumption that our behavior is a direct result of our emotions. Meaning, all our actions are motivated by emotional commitment. Its steps are as follows:

Subject:

Like most other coaching models, the first stage is to identify the goal or the subject of coaching. In other words, why, your client feels the need for coaching.

Target:

Next, identify their desired outcome or target. What is it that they want to achieve from the coaching sessions? If you know what they want as an outcome, you can show when it has happened. Too often people move their goals further out the closer they come to achieving them.

Emotions:

Every decision typically involves an emotion. Try to understand their emotions and what motivates them. Ask questions so you are not guessing. It is important to have a deep and clear understanding of the client’s emotional state, in regards to each decision they make.

Perception:

Try to see their goal from a broader view. Understand the meaning of its purpose, its importance, and what specifically its meaning is for them. When you understand their perspective you can nudge it and help them see things differently.

Plan:

To achieve their goals, they need to make a plan. Assist them with developing a path that can lead them closer to their goals.

Pace:

It is like setting time limits and boundaries for achieving each goal. It gives you a deadline so that you can achieve your target. It applies pressure and accountability.

Action:

Now, it’s time to act. Have them follow their plan step-by-step to achieve their desired outcomes. Be positive and encouraging. Hold your client accountable.

5 Types of Professional Coaching

Coaches don’t tell you what to do. They don’t give you a long list of things to tick off. Instead, you will be asked to analyse, reflect and then take action as coaching is a learning conversation. The intended result of a coaching process is to enable you to better achieve success in one of more areas of your personal and/or work life. We’ll look at the 5 main types of coaching.

#1 Career Coaching

A career coach provides insight into your professional development and advises on how to reach your career goals. They can also aid in your job search and help you transition into new roles or jobs.

Career coaching is for anyone who is just starting out on a career or years into one and wants to advance or make changes in their career.

The focus of Career Coaching is:

  • Skills assessment
  • Understanding the job market
  • Understanding organisational processes
  • Identifying opportunities and career-based roles that are “good fits”
  • Developing career transition plans

The career coaching process helps clients understand the world of work and their own personal development. Within this space, coaches assist clients in establishing a career action place with, the intent of enhancing employability.

#2 Personal Life Coaching

Life coaches can focus on your career, health, fitness, finances, or interpersonal relationships. A life coach can also help with growth and motivation. Sometimes we lose our way and have trouble finding the purpose of the work we do. Seeking help from someone removed from the situation can reveal blind spots in any area of our life we need.

This type of coaching intends to support individuals who wish to make some form of significant change happen in their lives.

Personal Life coaches help clients to:

  • Explore what they want in life
  • Define attainable dreams and aspirations
  • Find answers and ways to achieve their goals
  • Highlight and understand their own potential, skills and talents

#3 Executive Coaching

This type of coaching is about leadership development. It’s focused on training the business leaders of the future so they can take their careers to the next level.

Those in leadership positions are targeted by executive coaching, such as senior managers and directors, where performance development is a key concern. It is also called leadership or performance coaching.

The focus of Executive Coaching is:

  • Enhancing performance
  • Taking talents and abilities to a new level
  • Helping someone to adjust to new situations or a transition

Within one-on-one sessions, clients are afforded an opportunity to reflect and develop a personal awareness of their strengths and work on weaknesses or specific issues they find challenging. This process can be a powerful platform for improving performance in work environments.

 

#4 Team Coaching

Team coaches will train leaders on how to run their teams and teams on how to be better employees. This regimen involves a blend of coaching, teaching, facilitation, mediation, and positive psychology. If each team member undergoes coaching, the entire team can see improvements in their performance, communication, and collaboration.

Team coaching is a good idea whenever you intend to improve the performance of a team struggling with any of the mentioned problems. In addition to the intent of the team leader, it doesn’t hurt to secure the buy-in of every team member. Team coaching may work its magic even if some team members are skeptical about it.

Team coaching can help:

  • Branch office teams
  • Senior teams that pose unique challenges due to their particular brand of tribalism
  • Virtual teams that struggle to communicate optimally
  • Family businesses where ingrained relationships may hinder proper teamwork
  • Medical clinic teams
  • Research teams where egos and differing perspectives may collide
  • Military teams
  • Other teams

#5 Relationship Coaching

Relationship coaching aims to assist individuals, couples and groups build healthier and more fulfilling relationships.

The focus of Relationship Coaching is to address existing or potential challenges in relationships by:

  • Questioning assumptions
  • Identifying behavioural patterns
  • Setting clear and healthy relationship boundaries
  • Uncovering new listening mechanisms
  • Assisting with ways to better express feelings and views

Those embarking on this type of coaching will work through conflict resolution and effective communication techniques, stress management and ways to augment their emotional wellness.
