Rochester business owners were reminded of the importance of mentoring, coaching and training young people in the workforce at a breakfast meeting on Wednesday.
District business owners Geoff Moroney and Donald Hughan spoke about their experience.
Campaspe Cohuna Local Learning and Employment Network’s representative Bev Werner explained the difference between coaching and mentoring.
‘‘Coaching is task-orientated and performance driven and mentoring is relationship building and development driven,’’ she said.
Rochester business owner Geoff Moroney said he did not believe there was a difference between the two in relation to his experience as a football player and coach.
He said he ‘‘went off the rails’’ at age 15 and, without the support of his coaches, could have continued on that path.
Mr Moroney spoke of the simple discipline of asking disengaged players to run laps which helped get them on the right track.
Goulburn-Murray Water staff member Donald Hughan went through a traineeship with the organisation and was eventually employed there.
Mr Hughan has a physical disability and felt valued when the organisation saw fit to make alterations to the building to accommodate his needs.
CCLLEN chief executive Anne Trickey said it was important people felt wanted in the workplace.
