- Increased awareness of strengths and weaknesses moving from manager to advisor (assessments and reflection)
- Knowledge of models that can help your transition to advisor (online learning; iGROW, Solution Focused Coaching, and SMART Goals)
- Able to practice use of models to enhance soft skills to help transition (workshop)
What is advising?
Coaching skills underpin the ability to ease-off outright advice giving, and ramp up the non-directive support. An advisor may spend 30-40% of their time coaching, whereas a mentor might spend closer to 85-95% of their time coaching.
Building your coaching skills will help you facilitate the types of conversations that empower (i.e., coach) new managers to become more independent and will serve you well as both advisor and mentor.
What is coaching?
Coaching is an outcome-focused activity that fosters self-directed learning. Coaching is often undertaken by professional coaches who are trained in the art of developing others. However, anyone can be a coach, including peers and managers, by following specific practices. Coaching should be a result-orientated process. Coaches often use models (e.g., iGROW, which is covered in this course) to ask questions which can encourage the coachee being developed to stop, think, learn, and grow.
The job of the coach is never to tell the coachee what to do but assist the coachee to take responsibility for attaining their own career and life objectives. A coach, unlike a mentor, does not need to have had the specific career experiences a mentor would have in terms of the person being developed, but has a lot of experience in facilitating learning and development.
What is mentoring?
Mentors may often be your manager or someone at the next level up in an organisation. They may use their own experiences and learning to give insight to the mentee and may also use models (e.g., iGROW) to provide a structure for asking questions of the mentee that can assist them to think through and take responsibility for their life and career goals. We all develop best as adults when we take responsibility for our own development.

The NEO is an assessment of the ‘Big 5’ personality traits Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism. Self-awareness in these areas can give you insight into your coping mechanisms and defences (e.g., whether or not you will be positive and optimistic about challenges), interpersonal characteristics (e.g., how your needs for status can affect your relationships), and many other domains relevant to mentoring.

Emotional intelligence (EQ) is your ability to recognise and understand emotions in yourself and others, and your ability to use this awareness to manage your behavior and relationships. This assessment will provide you with results on four parts of emotional intelligence based on the connection between what you see and what you do with yourself and others. This will give you an indication of your strengths and weaknesses when it comes to working with others.
