We deliver coaching & mentoring as required to all layers of the P3M and Project Office environment. The way we recognise the difference between coaching and mentoring is outlined as:
- Coaching – this is a service where we spend time with the coached as they perform key tasks in the project environment in real time. At the end of each meeting/activity/task, we will debrief the coached and provide feedback on aspects of the performance that could be improved and provide support where required. We can also provide support and advice in real-time only when previously agreed.
- Mentoring – this is a service where we make ourselves available as required by the mentee in a private one-to-one situation. With mentoring, the mentee is encouraged to approach us with topics for assistance. We would then pass on our experience by discussing alternative approaches, solutions and other processes designed to transfer knowledge to the mentee. We can also develop a mentoring plan to develop capability in conjunction with the mentee and/or their manager.
