Coaching vs Consulting

Coaching vs Consulting

Many people get confused by the role of a consultant versus a coach. Typically, a consultant is a person who gives professional or expert advice. While a coach connotes terms like teacher, mentor, trainer and developer. Both roles bring different, yet important, value.
