#Coaching vs. #mentoring: what works best?

#Coaching vs. #mentoring: what works best? | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Teacher Andrew Jones explains the difference between coaching and mentoring, and how they suit different professional development needs

 

Coaching, on the other hand, consists of peer-to-peer discussions that provide the person being coached with objective feedback on their strengths and weaknesses in areas chosen by them. While discussion is led by the coach, they ask questions that allow the professional seeking advice to reflect on their practice and set their own goals for improvement. This is the opposite of mentoring as the coach does not evaluate, judge or set targets, and the person being coached is in full control of the discussion.

 

Unlike mentoring, coaching also gives the recipient more say on the direction of their professional development and encourages them to take more ownership of their CPD.

Les termes de coaching et mentoring sont souvent utilisés et je n'avais pas vraiment réfléchi à la différence des deux approches. Si elles se basent toutes deux sur des échanges informels, elles ont un périmètre et des objectifs différents très bien expliqués dans l'article.

Five Alternatives To Saying "I Don't Know" | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Nothing can fluster even the most unflappable professional like being asked a question to which they don’t know the answer. Appearing incompetent or uninformed is one thing, but what makes this scenario even worse is when you’re asked the ‘impossible question’ in a group setting. Maybe it’s a group you know well—or [...]

If you want to build credibility at work, always be prepared to add value to the conversation and those you are with.  It is okay that you don't know; however, it is often not what you say...it is how you say it that makes all the difference for women professionals.

 

Take a read, and why not challenge yourself to apply some of these responses on for size.  If you have other power responses that have killer results, we would love to read them so please share!!!

5 Factors That Drive Employees Away - #Leadership

5 Factors That Drive Employees Away - #Leadership | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Cruise Line Class's insight:

Good article and great reminder!

 

Daniel Pink's book "Drive" talks about the 3 things that motivate staff:  AMP - Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose. 

 

Our teams need to know that:

1.  They are important to us

2.  That they are heard and understood

3.  That they are empowered to make decisions and do their job with our support

4.  That they belong -- they are part of a community

5.  That they are growing and that we are helping them reach theri potential

 

So what are some things that you do to build your culture, build your teams, and keep your staff motivated? 

 

Please, would really value your input and feedback on this.

 

As always thank you for stopping by.  Always looking for ways to help you accelerate your success and live on purpose!

BPIWorld.com's curator insight, August 4, 2014 10:07 AM

The important practice here is to set clear expectations, and performance goals. The potential for highly charged emotional reactions from both parties could be detrimental to success. Instead, be willing to look at the possibilities for helping the business grow and the specific goals that that individual wants to achieve. For example, if the goal is for all employees to place 1 hour of sales and 1 hour of marketing into their day, connect it to a sales quota and possible commission structure. Then, the motivation for doing so becomes more relevant - and will take away from having to do constant busy work that does not stimulate and inspire.  The results will bring substantial growth and take away the anger from both the owner/manager and employee...

How can companies increase engagement? An insightful New York Times article by Tony Schwartz and Christine Porath included a survey of more than 12,000 employees that identified four drivers: physical (having the opportunity to recharge); emotional (feeling valued); mental (having the ability to work autonomously); and spiritual (feeling connected to a higher purpose).

Six Key Servant Leadership Attributes

Six Key Servant Leadership Attributes | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

The 21st century has brought much in the way of turmoil and change to the world of business. As a consequence, ways of doing business that were once universally accepted now seem outdated and inflexible in an age where knowledge drives economies and socially responsible corporate attitudes influence stakeholders and shareholders alike.

 

With such changes have come new priorities and responsibilities and it is in this environment that the theory of servant leadership has flourished as a management style for the redefined business world of today, one that can serve as a cornerstone for organisations wishing to build corporate structures based on stewardship, empowerment and trust.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 14, 2014 10:35 AM

(From the article) Servant leadership will benefit organisations dependent on knowledge workers and in environments where high levels of creativity and innovation are the norm. Knowledge workers in particular require a sense of autonomy in order to function at their best and it is the responsibility of the servant leader to create this workplace freedom for them.
