Notable Quotes  Coaching is typically focused on a time when you build skills or solve problems like mentoring. It's a time-bound accountability-based relationship. Mentoring is a relationship between two people with personal and professional development goals. While it's good that your mentor may have the highest skills, it's also really important that they can teach or share the skills you want to learn. Your mentor doesn't have to be your friend. You just want them to care enough about you to give you hard feedback. They may share feedback with you that doesn't make you feel good, or they may I share a harsh message with you. But it's the harsh messages that help us to grow.  Resources If you want to know more about creating intentional pivots, let's connect, and remember to SHARE with your friends!
