In Jan’s own words: “Coaching and mentoring have a great potential to unlock the best in people and enable them to live a full life. As my dear friend and author of Financial Time book “Business coaching” Anne Scoular says: ’Mentoring puts in advise, content, information, while coaching pulls out the capacity people have within‘. I am a strong believer in the combination of both coaching and mentoring as the synergy between them is what made me and teams I led successful on a global scale”.
