      Isn’t mentoring more or less the same as developing people (as in helping them to develop their abilities)?

      • johnvonhof

        I would call mentoring people a more focused, one-on-one, and very personal way of developing people. I could be developed by a company instructing me to take a class, while a mentor would help me understand the reasons I should, the benefits and challenges, telling me how to study, take notes, and get the most out of the experience.

          Hmm. I see what you mean. We could say that mentoring is part of developing, a more specialized way of doing it.
