Coaching and mentoring

People leaders can use coaching skills in order to help their team members identify their goals and the resources necessary in order to achieve them.

Its purpose is to develop you, not only for the current job, but also for the future. This distinction differentiates the role of your immediate manager and that of the mentor.
