Here is a nice explanation by Michael Ehling (www.balancecoaching.com):
A mentor knows from experience and teaches that knowledge. Mentors can say, “I’ve been there. I can help you avoid my mistakes and use my successes.” Mentoring conversations look like this, “Here’s what you need to do next.”
A coach uses a process to help you understand where you are, where you’d like to go next, what the next steps to get there are, and how to handle any roadblocks (typically stemming from perspective).

High performers who want to reach the next level without making all the mistakes.
“I’ve done just fine without a coach…”
You may be doing just fine but what does that really mean?
Are you living the life YOU really want?
If not, do you recognize the barriers that are stopping you?
You are the expert of your professional and personal life and you ALREADY have all the creativity and resources to live to your fullest potential. Coaches are experts on helping you identify and define the goals that matter to you and to support you in maximizing the life you want to live. Well-defined goals along with new skills and insights will allow you to move toward achieving those goals faster and more effortlessly.
If you decide to engage in a coaching relationship, you can expect to experience fresh perspectives on life’s challenges and opportunities, improved thinking and decision-making skills, enhanced interpersonal effectiveness, and increased confidence in all aspects of your life. This will lead to noticeable results in personal effectiveness and satisfaction along with a strong sense of achievement and happiness.
Having worked with clients from various industries, I have come to realize that the fundamentals of my methodology remain the same. The first thing I do is to conduct an initial consultation to make sure I am the right coach for you. The second is to verify that you are willing and committed to improve (It is okay if you don’t know how, as long as you are willing). I will not coach people who do not WANT to be coached. It would be a waste of everyone’s time.
After securing a commitment to the coaching relationship, we will work together to clarify and create a plan to achieve the goals that you want. The usual commitment is for 3-6 month period meeting every 2 weeks (6-12 sessions).
I love coaching and training others to be their best and I have extensively researched the 5 key aspects for living your life to the fullest. I am passionate about reaching my highest potential and I apply everything I learn in my life before ever presenting it to you.
Consulting provides temporary or intermittent solutions while coaching is a consistent, ongoing relationship where the coach stays with the client to help them achieve their goals through skill building and change management. Consulting often involves telling people what they should do while coaching focuses on helping the client discover the solution on his/her own.
Coaching is not therapy. Coaching is focused on the client and provides the support and strategy to make changes based on the awareness a client holds. Coaching is movement oriented and action based. Therapy brings understanding and awareness of the past to a client to help resolve conflicting issues they have impeded them.
A supportive friend is great but they rarely hold the objectivity and distance a coach would. A coach is a professional who is trusted to work with you on the most important aspects of your life and to offer a different perspective of the truth because of the emotional distance the professional relationship offers.
