    • found: Work cat.: 2005018373 Coaching and feedback for performance, 2006: (Coaching is a developmental partnership, based on the shared responsibility between a coach and an individual. It is not a simple hand-off or transfer of knowledge, but a relationship focused on developing people's capabilities and enabling them with the confidence and freedom to aspire to independent achievements in their own way. Coaching promotes and supports an individual's growth, learning, professional development and personal benchmarks...Mentoring is typically a broader, longer term, and often more personal relationship in which the mentor may address the protégé's personal and professional growth. The focus of mentoring is on the potential and growth of the individual first, and on the potential benefits for the organization or team second. Mentors can pass on their knowledge and perhaps open the door to unique opportunities. Mentoring is usually a voluntary and mutually selected relationship, whereas coaching may be a job expectation or in some cases, an expected competency for managers and leaders. Mentors use many of the coaching tools, skills and processes.)
