In celebration of National Mentoring Day, 27th October 2022, the IAPC&M continues to champion mentors worldwide.

Increasingly, mentoring is a professional skill set being asked for by clients, even when they call it counselling, coaching or consulting. That’s why we’ve recorded another special round table discussion, to help everyone gain clarity around the definitions of coaching, mentoring, counselling, consultancy, and training.

Of course, these modalities are all about having a conversation, but misunderstandings over boundaries and expectations occur when there is a lack of clarity around the definition of the word describing the exact service provision.

That’s why the contracting stage is key to managing any successful relationship. Listen in for more tips and definitions:
