Coaching and Mentoring

Coaching and mentoring are potentially valuable processes to help someone to enhance their performance, improve working relationships, develop their capability or manage their career. An effective coach or mentor creates a relationship which enables the other to discuss the important issues that matter to them at work. Coaching or mentoring can be particularly effective because the conversations can be tailored to the precise challenges facing the individual today. The support of a coach or mentor complements rather than replaces the support of a line manager.
