WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MENTORING AND TEACHING?
What is a mentor?
A mentor helps you realise your goals.
What is mentoring?
Mentoring is supporting another person to realise their ambitions.
How is mentoring different from teaching?
Mentors are different because they guide rather than just share information. They’ve already actually achieved what you want to and are aware of the pitfalls and discouragements that you will encounter along the way, mostly because they’ve experienced those pitfalls themselves.
Why is mentoring more effective.
Mentoring is more practical, personal and profound. Mentoring is not just about taking you where you want to go, but having the knowledge to get you there quickly and with least amount of frustration.
