What Is A Mentor?




"A coach has some great questions for your answers; a mentor has some great answers for your questions."

People ask why we call what we do mentoring versus (buzzword-of-the-moment) coaching.

At Franco Blueprint Inc., we use the same skills and approach as a  coach would, but we're in it for the long-term. 

Here's more about the difference that defines our services...


Mentoring - Ongoing relationship that can last for a long period of time.

Coaching - Relationship generally has a set duration.

Mentoring - Can be more informal and meetings can take place as and when the mentee needs some advice, guidance or support.

Coaching - Generally more structured in nature and meetings are scheduled on a regular basis.

Mentoring - More long-term and takes a broader view of the person.

Coaching - Short-term (sometimes time-bounded) and focused on specific development areas/issues.

Mentoring - Focus is on career and personal development.

Coaching - Focus is generally on development/issues at work.

Mentoring - Agenda is set by the mentee, with the mentor providing support and guidance to prepare them for future roles.

Coaching - The agenda is focused on achieving specific, immediate goals.
