Parsloe, E., (1992) Coaching, Mentoring and Assessing:
A practical guide to developing competence.

Many of us have had the benefit at some time in our lives from having someone with whom we can discuss our plans, hopes and issues that may be holding us back from moving forwards in our personal and/or professional lives.

Mentoring can be the key to offering a different perspective and can help with setting goals and defining how to achieve them.

Mentoring enables individuals to challenge their assumptions and in turn helps to enhance their own career, professional     development and outlook on life.

Mentoring helps to motivate when the going gets tough and encourages persistence when otherwise there may be a tendency to     give up on a task or set of objectives.

Mentoring is of great value supporting individuals through difficult career transitions

Mentoring is a process where the relationship between both parties is crucial to the success of the outcome.

Mentoring compared to Coaching is often more longer term, providing support, guidance and at times, is more directional in its     approach.

Mentoring can focus on professional development where knowledge and experience is shared particularly if it is felt that the     individual will benefit from this type of directive input.

Mentoring is concerned with continuing personal as well as professional development
