What is the difference between coaching and training?

The training is designed to increase knowledge and skills. Coaching is designed to increase self-awareness about attitude, behaviors, choices, and developmental needs. In short, training and training complement each other to equip students and drive them to move towards achieving their goals. I use the analogy of training and training working together like we play tennis.

Training consists of the technicalities of developing the skills of how we serve, hit the ball and move on the court, which are extrinsic. Coaching is all about belief, the drive to succeed and removing internal barriers that are intrinsic. Although training and training are different practices, they can work well together and deliver successful results. Training transfers desirable knowledge and skills, coaching infuses learning and training enthusiasm to the workplace in a more sustainable and influential way.

It is for those executive coaches who want to accredit, validate or improve their skills with an internationally recognized executive coaching qualification. Also because some coaches bring a little teaching to their training activities, and some coaches use a facilitating style. Training and training are used interchangeably so often that it leads many to believe that there is no difference between training and training. Some people tend to confuse coaching with problem solving, but coaching offers much more than just providing “quick fix” solutions.

According to Perry, to be truly successful in a coaching engagement, there are some critical attributes that the person being trained must have. On a similar topic, a professional coach will focus on the concrete because training involves addressing a situation in detail. On the contrary, coaching is usually a personalized structure, in which the coach and the student have a one-on-one interaction. Coaching is examining the client's “operating system” to optimize and expand it, said Maren Perry, president of Arden Coaching.

Coaching takes into account the specific performance of the person you are targeting and then provides personalized direction.
