WLC - Coaching and Mentoring: Unlock Your Potential
Coaching and Mentoring: Unlocking Potential to Maximize Growth
Interested in empowering other women? At this month’s meeting, Cheryl Ricketts, Founder and Lead Coach for Competitive Edge HR, will lead a session on unlocking potential through coaching and mentoring. Many people assume coaching and mentoring and interchangeable terms. Both are powerful ways to expand a person’s abilities but are typically used for different developmental needs.
After the session, you’ll more fully understand the differences between mentoring and coaching and when it’s appropriate to use each. In addition, Cheryl will also review the coaching model she uses with clients and share tips that will improve your results as a coach.
