Hello my friend,
Mentoring and coaching are two different things. Mentoring is a holistic approach to carve out a student's life on and off the campus. coaching is imparting skills and knowledge in a specific branch of subject. Mentoring is aid advise and guide the students thru all walks of life. Coaching is training in a particualr field.

Thanks everyone for your valuable input! However, I would appreciate if someone could answer the following questions as at this stage I cannot ask for the help of a professional trainer:
Selecting a coach or mentor for existing employees?as both roles are different
Could the line manager assume these roles?If not, then should the person selected be from the same function or could he be from any function
How do you initiate the process of selecting the mentors? Do you allow mentees to choose their mentors or should the HR select the mentors on behalf of the mentees?And then should you ask the mentors for their willingness?
What kind of objectives are set for the mentees by the mentors?are the goals only regarding the development or does this person help in achievement of assigned targets as well?
What is the frequency of interactions?Preferably?
How is the progress monitored?
Period of mentoring?
Please send some forms if possible
