Interest in coaching and mentoring has increased over the past decades. However, confusionabout what is meant in practice and in the literature and the lack of sound definitions makes ithard to research the antecedents and outcomes of both concepts. We show that coaching andmentoring share a lot, but they are often treated as separate fields. By developing models thatcombine the concepts of coaching and mentoring, we aim to provide a base for more rigorousresearch. Such a base hopefully encourages researches and practitioners of coaching andmentoring to work together instead of struggling against each other.
