Jo & Holly – what’s the difference between coaching, mentoring and masterminding?

If you’ve ever wondered what the difference between coaching and mentoring is, and why some masterminds feel more like group coaching, this week’s podcast episode aims to clear that up for you.

It’s fair to say that there isn’t one clear definition for either coaching, mentoring or masterminding. As an evolving industry, there’s still confusion and difference of opinion as to which is which.

Some people call themselves coaches – when others would call what they do consulting or mentoring. Some folks call themselves mentors yet they’ve not had extensive experience in the area they’re mentoring around.

And when it feels like everyone and their dog is in a mastermind, how do you know what you need?

Are paid masterminds better than free ones? What do masterminds actually do? If you want to set one up yourself, is that OK? And if it is, how do you actually go about doing it?

So in this episode, Holly Worton and I give our own views, based on our extensive experience in the coaching industry about what we think the difference is AND to know which one you need at different times in your business
