Mentorship vs. Coaching: Which do you Need?

Have you ever thought about the difference between mentorship and coaching? We hadn't....until a few months ago.

5 Reminders When Treating Chronic Pain

Pelvic PT Rising: The pelvic health tools to make you a better clinician and/or a more successful business owner. We want every single pelvic health practitioner to be more confident and successful in your practice and career!

  • Clinical Courses: Game-changing online courses to make you more confident, challenge your thinking and improve patient outcomes

  • Business Resources: Helping 500+ pelvic health practitioners confidently start, grow and build their dream business!


This lesson applies in both the clinical and business realms.

Mentorship is wisdom. It helps you grow in confidence, competence and problem-solving. A mentor can easily be someone outside of your specialty or niche that helps you see the big picture.

Coaching is tactics. It's knowledge. It's the specific skills and resources you need. A coach needs to fully understand your specialty (field, sport, whatever it is).

In both clinical skills and business, we need both!

Clinically, we need coaches and courses (which are coaching). But we also need bigger-picture thinking to understand how to apply those skills (to use the tools in our toolbox!).

The same is true in business. We need specific skills and tactics, but without the wisdom to know how to apply them we are going to struggle.

In this 'sode we dive into the difference between coaching and mentoring and how both matter when you're building a business - check it out!

As Nicole said on the full 'sode of the topic...
