Students in coaching training programs (ICF-ACTP ), or anyone working toward an ICF credential (ACC or PCC), needs Mentor Coaching. In addition to helping coaches develop expertise with the ICF core competencies, I also support them with client development, practice setup, formulation of a coaching style, and logistics for structuring, selecting, recording, and sharing coaching sessions for review,
A frequent question I get from the coaches I mentor, is "What am I going to do without you once this process is over?" In reality, although mentor coaching requirements may be fulfilled, the mentor coaching relationship does not have to end, because I remain available to coaches who feel they can benefit from continued mentoring or super-vision.
Admittedly, I get a thrill out of seeing coaches improve their effectiveness before my eyes. As we learn from one another and make each other better coaches, the ripple effect of our positive impact keeps growing.
