The career coach focuses on the future and your strengths in meeting your career goals. Sometimes, life and emotional issues may have significant contribution to this process, but is not the main focus. The coach is an active partner, focuses on action and is often an advisor. He wants to make you successful, and does this through a structured process.
In both there are strong similarities too which is understandable why the two are often mixed up. Both practice active listening and create a trusting and confidential relationship with you. They both use the same techniques in trying to understand and clarify problems or issues. Both adhere to a strong code of ethics and honor your inner values.
