What is the difference between Training & Coaching?


For most of the people, it might look the same. But let me clarify, both of them are completely different. Based on wikipedia Training is refers to the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and competencies as a result of the teaching of vocational or practical skills and knowledge that relates to specific useful skills.

Training is where you learn the soft skill or I would say that the fundamental. For example, if you like to play golf, will you go straight to the game before learn what to swing the golf clubs? Of course No!

First you must equip yourself with basics training skills, learnt how to swing the golf club, understand the rules of the game etc.

“Coaching” is more personal (1-3 people in a group or sometimes is one to one). They will guide you step by step to ensure you doing the correct thing. Coach do not make decision for you, they can only guide you. You have to pick up the ball and hit it yourself.

Also coach is not necessary better than you. Let take the example of Andrew Agassi. He has a personal coach. If both of them playing tennis, guess who will win? Definitely Andrew!

So why he need a coach? The bottom line is coach is to guide you and not doing job for you!

You might wonder why do i talking about this subject and what it going to do with internet marketing?

Ok, I have been pleasure to be invited by one of my guru KC See to help him in internet coaching club that will start on August. I am so excited that I can share my internet skills with others. “The More You Learn,The More You Earn”

My advise is learn the basics skill before venture to any business. If not, you got cheated also you do not know what happen!

Cheers!

I am a Chinese, in our language, Coach - 教練 two words TEACH & TRAIN, so in Chinese, Coach includes TRAIN. A Coach, whenever required, teaches (to transfer and deliver information, experience and knowledge), and provides methodologies of training to make sure that the person under coach can make use of what the coach has taught to achieve projected results. In our case, the Coaching activities include teaching, which includes searching for information which may include experiences of others, and obtaining knowledge, to be transferred to the Coachee, who should also receive training that is repeatedly rehearse or memorize or practicing or doing something, in order to achieve a certain goal(s) or objective(s) in a future event.
