I now want to look at the history, definitions and different types of training and guidance. Training is rooted in psychology and sporting training and is not a new concept, as the relationship goes back to two thousand years to the Greek philosophers of Socrates who saw themselves as midwives for understanding (Landsberg, 2002: 8). Training in the field of business first appeared really in literature in the sixties. I have described some definitions of training below:
"Auxiliary relationship formed between customer and managerial responsibilities and organizations with a wide range of behavioral approaches and methods to help the client reach a set of goals to improve their performance and personal satisfaction and, consequently, improve customer performance within the formal defined training contract "(Kilburg, 2000, p. 142).
Looking at the definition above, it can be said that training is an activation process that aims to promote learning and development with a view to improving performance on certain aspects of work. I agree with these definitions and would also add that training tends to have short-term focus and really in mind with the immediate challenges of the client.
I have found that there are many different types of training, including life training (personal training), vocational training, performance training, mental training and team training. Executive Training (EC) has evolved from some of these other types of training, in well-known practice within organizations. EC differs from other types of training mentioned above, but often involves many aspects of other types of training.
Since other types of training are mostly viewed from the point of view of coaches, EC has a dual focus on working alone to develop executive as a leader and also to help the leader to achieve successful results. I've found that EC's focus is on improving the performance of coaches, which will totally improve the agency's performance and there before saying personal or life-training that is primarily aimed at coaches.
Now that we have reviewed certain definitions of training, we will review the instructions and I have provided a definition of the instructions below.
"… help from one person to another to make a significant transformation into knowledge, work or thought."
Clutterbuck, D & Megginson, D, (1999) Supervisory Managers and Managers.
I will say that the mentor emphasizes longer than training. Teaching software is designed to encourage personal growth and focus more on culture. The supervisor has a lot of resemblance to training, but is quite different in many ways. A supervisor will usually have experience in a particular area and provide counseling and instructors where the coach's role is to assist and lack skills. Some of the main differences in training and guidance are described below. I find out when I'm guiding someone, I'm in that position because of my experience or expertise in this particular field. I also offer more guidance and advice to the client than in training.
