👂👊💡𝑫𝒐 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒌𝒏𝒐𝒘 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒅𝒊𝒇𝒇𝒆𝒓𝒆𝒏𝒄𝒆 𝒃𝒆𝒕𝒘𝒆𝒆𝒏 𝒂 𝒄𝒐𝒂𝒄𝒉, 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒔𝒖𝒍𝒕𝒂𝒏𝒕 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒐𝒓?
👈 😕👉Not surprisingly it seems there are 𝒅𝒊𝒇𝒇𝒆𝒓𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒗𝒊𝒆𝒘𝒔 out there on what each of these of do, how they operate and the benefits or advise each provide.
📢⚽👔Some of the confusion probably comes from the fact that the title of coach, consultant and mentor are used quite liberally in 𝒅𝒊𝒇𝒇𝒆𝒓𝒆𝒏𝒕 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒕𝒆𝒙𝒕𝒔 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒓𝒐𝒍𝒆𝒔 𝒄𝒂𝒏 𝒃𝒆 𝒎𝒆𝒓𝒈𝒆𝒅. A 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒇𝒆𝒔𝒔𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒂𝒍 𝒔𝒑𝒐𝒓𝒕𝒔 𝒄𝒐𝒂𝒄𝒉 would probably be expected to provide advise, judgements and opinions based on their experience to their team to improve their performance. Whereas good practise for a 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒇𝒆𝒔𝒔𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒂𝒍 𝒍𝒊𝒇𝒆 𝒄𝒐𝒂𝒄𝒉 means not providing advise or judgements to individuals, rather creating greater client awareness through smart questioning to help individuals move forward positively.
🎥🎥🎥For these reasons I thought I'd share 𝒎𝒚 𝒑𝒆𝒓𝒔𝒑𝒆𝒄𝒕𝒊𝒗𝒆 on each of these roles in a short video, particularly given that my business provide services in all of these areas.
In simple terms you could say:

I'm sure you've all got your own opinions based on who you worked with and the experiences you've had.
