The Basics

Executive Coaches and mentors can seem similar, but they are pretty different. A coach  literally “coaches” you in specific areas that they are trained or specialized in, while mentors typically offer guidance and  advice from their personal experiences. Mentors can help you think about personal and business challenges, while Executive Coaches are often focused on your performance as a founder or executive. Importantly, Executive Coaches are typically paid, whereas mentors do so on a volunteer basis.
