As a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by the ICF, I am qualified to mentor coach you, so that you can practice the coaching competencies and become a powerful coach.
What is mentor coaching?
Beginner coaches need to practice the ICF Core Competencies, i.e. how to deeply listen, how to ask powerful questions, etc.
As per ICF, mentor coaching consists of coaching and feedback in a collaborative, appreciative and dialogued process based on an observed or recorded coaching session to increase the coach’s capability in coaching.
I provide 1:1 mentor coaching sessions (45-50 minutes), in which I will be listening in for your skills and giving you valuable feedback, based on my experience as a coach and coach trainer.
What will you gain?
You will consolidate your learning and become fully confident in your coaching skills.
ICF requires 10 mentor coaching sessions for you to become certified, along with coaching training.
Mentor Coaching should take place over an extended time (three-month minimum) in a cycle that allows for listening and feedback from the Mentor Coach while also allowing reflection and practice on the part of the individual being mentored.
According to the ICF, the Mentor Coach:
Is trustworthy and has the ability to connect with the mentee in terms of fit, chemistry and compatibility.
Is someone who encourages the mentee to reach beyond what the mentee initially feels is possible, assisting in broadening their creative process.
Demonstrates equal partnership by being open, vulnerable and willing to take appropriate risks, for example, in providing feedback that may make one or both individuals uncomfortable.
Understands and is able to model the value of partnership and, as an example, allows/encourages the mentee to lead in designing areas to be worked on between sessions that will lead to more powerful, leveraged coaching.
Has the ability to be supportive and authentic in celebrating who the mentee is, her/his achievements and growth throughout the process.
Is secure in their own work and is able to demonstrate appreciation and respect for the unique style of each mentee.
Encourages the development of the mentee’s own coaching style
Is willing to hold both self and mentee accountable for performance and to periodically encourage mutual assessment of the effectiveness of the relationship
