In your journal make notes on the similarities and differences in relation to definitions and contexts for coaching and mentoring. Thinking of the distinctions between coaching and mentoring, write a tentative working definition for each. Note that it is important to be aware of the principles underpinning each of these relationships and particularly the power differentials within each. You can continue to develop these working definitions throughout this module. Make notes also on any ethical concerns or implications raised by these sources.
