Exploring career mentoring and coaching

6 Summary

By now, you should feel more confident about recognising a good mentor or coach and identifying the key skills that allow them to do their job well.

You should now be able to:

  • understand what makes a good mentor or coach
  • recognise how rapport and trust can be built
  • describe the listening and questioning skills that a good mentor or coach will demonstrate.

Next week, you’ll focus on mentoring, investigating what it can do, how it works and who can benefit from it.
