Frequently Asked Questions
While the terms “coaching” and “mentoring” are often used interchangeably, they are technically two different functions. There is a distinction between the two functions.
Coaching is a paired dialogue in which a facilitator (the coach) uses questions, feedback, and encouragement to help the other party reach a desired goal through mastery of new skills, deeper self-understanding, improved effectiveness, and accelerated achievement.
By contrast, mentoring is a paired relationship, the aim of which is to transfer wisdom and insight from someone with veteran experience (the mentor) to another person with more limited experience (the mentee) in a setting of collegial dialogue.
In short, a mentor is someone who “shows you the ropes.” Whereas coaching aims at improved performance in an immediate situation, mentoring aims at increased wisdom and understanding in the broader context of life.
e-Learning offers the learner flexibility. Because the courses are online and can be completed at your own pace, the learner finds flexibility in completing the course. If there is a concept that the learner needs more time to master, he is not forced to move at the pace of the class or instructor. He can do so at a pace that is comfortable.
