A mentor coach is an expert who provides wisdom and guidance based on their experience to enhance the coach’s skills. Mentoring includes feedback, advising and at specific moments, coaching. A good mentor is responsible for listening to the mentee’s coaching, assessing their skill level, and creating a collaborative partnership for working together to support the coach’s growth.
When To be mentored?
