Mentoring is a process that focuses specifically on providing guidance, direction, and career advice. Mentoring programs can be either a standalone program or part of a training and development program within an organization. Organizations, including Federal agencies run standalone formal mentoring programs to enhance career and personal development.

Not all mentoring relationships are formed through formal programs. Informal mentoring programs may also be effective in your organization to help facilitate these relationships. Two examples of informal mentoring are Flash Mentoring and Speed Mentoring, both of which facilitate short-term mentoring relationships between a mentor and protégé.

Mentoring and Coaching in Government
Mentoring, like Coaching, is a ‘helping’ activity, which enables individuals to achieve their full potential. Distinct from mentoring, coaching is not based on the coach's subject matter expertise; rather it is based on the coach partnering with the coachee using established techniques and a thought-provoking and creative process to guide the coachee toward his/her goals without giving advice.
