What is the difference between business mentoring and coaching? There can be some confusion between the two especially since often what a mentor does is coach.
A mentor is generally someone who has the industry-specific expertise. It is someone that the mentee admires in their profession for their knowledge and ability to be successful in difficult business situations. Mentors are people who have done the work that the mentees are doing, so they have the experience and insight that will hopefully help the mentees be successful in their career. Mentors possess the cultural savy that the mentees seek.
