A business coach is much more focused on created clear steps to get you where you need to be in your career development. They focus on the skills you need to master, and the projects or stepping stones you need to strive for to get where you want to be.
Before becoming a mentor, here are a few things to understand about the role of mentoring. Most of us have had a teacher, supervisor, or coach who has been a mentor to us and made a positive difference in our lives. Those people wore many hats, acting as delegators, role models, cheerleaders, policy enforcers, advocates, and friends. Mentors assume these different roles during the course of a relationship, and share some basic qualities:
- A sincere desire to be involved
- Respect for people
- Active listening skills
