There are two key elements to defining a structured coaching program – a model for how the coaching will be conducted, and the methods or standards that guide how coaches will conduct such relationships. A model explains the process through which a coaching engagement will be conducted, while the methods and standards establish “guardrails” to create consistent and reliable experiences for those being coached. Methods and norms are published and accepted as professional standards for coaching through the International Coaching Federation, The Center for Credentialing and Education (CEE), and other professional bodies which guide the training, development, and certification of coaches worldwide.
Mentoring lacks regulatory bodies such as those that exist for coaching and thus relies on best practices as standards.
