Coaching v Mentoring v Sponsoring
Coaching v Mentoring v Sponsoring
• Tends to focus on performance and leadership
development
“coaching is the art of facilitating the performance,
learning and development of another”
• Usually very structured with scheduled meetings
• Shorter term
• Coach facilitates development
Coaching v Mentoring v Sponsoring
• Tends to focus on longer term career development, life
choices and, with women, how to break through
• Can be informal as and when
• Longer term
• Mentor usually more experienced and qualified
Coaching v Mentoring v Sponsoring
• Sponsor – it’s often your boss
• Usually will offer elements of coaching and mentoring as
part of the boss/subordinate relationship
• Two way street – to deserve a sponsor need to deliver,
loyalty, network, feedback
Take Aways
1.
From my experience in eircom, coaching/mentoring/sponsorship have a
strong role to play in developing female leaders
2.
There are a lot of good programmes available - sign up to one
3.
Only one request that I have made for mentoring was turned down
4.
Fit is key in coaching and mentoring, if it’s not right change it
5.
I’ve had a coach for 13 years and need one today as much as ever
6.
I’ve just completed the Preasta mentoring programme and my sponsor has
just left the organisation so I will be actively seeking a new mentor and
sponsor
