Q: What’s the difference between the coaching, consulting and training?
A: It’s good to distinguish between those because some people call themselves a coach when they’re really doing consulting. Some people call themselves a coach and they’re really doing training. So when I think about consulting and I’ve done a lot of it early on in my business. Consulting focuses on the organization and is all about providing solutions. So you come in, you’re the expert and you’re gonna tell people what to do and fix it. Now training is different even in consulting focuses on helping individuals learn a new skill. So as a trainer, you’re the expert with the answers but you’re teaching other people how to do it. So opposed to a consultant, who tells them how to do it, a trainer is teaching them how to do it even though you can do it yourself. You’re not doing it for them, you’re teaching them.
As I said earlier, what coaching is all about, it’s really focusing on helping the person uncover the answers for themselves with guidance and support. So the consultant is the person that will tell you. The trainer is the person that’s going to teach you. Then the peer coach is going to be the person that’s going to ask you great questions to help you think it through and be there to support you.
