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.
