Mind the Positive is a channel of information and wisdom, for balance, fulfillment and wholeness. It takes various pathways to facilitate individuals towards exploring and reaching own potential. Coaching and mentoring, among other services –training and workshops, assessment and consultancy, in particular, are one-to-one interventions that serve that purpose.
Coaching and mentoring, regarded today as the applied component of positive psychology, are processes that facilitate individuals to explore and achieve their potential. Though sharing common features, they differ from one another.
Coaching is “a process that enables learning and development to occur and thus performance to improve. To be a successful a Coach requires a knowledge and understanding of process as well as the variety of styles, skills and techniques that are appropriate to the context in which the coaching takes place” (Parsloe, Eric, The Manager as Coach and Mentor, 1999, p. 8).
