What is Mentor Coaching?
From Patty Burgin: "It's a dynamic personal learning experience designed to build your understanding and use of the ICF Core Competencies. Some of it is done individually, some of it small groups. And it's a requirement for coaches who are ready to earn or renew their international credential. In mentor coaching, we "connect the dots" between your skill development, your coaching presence and style and the ICF Core Competencies. We'll give you feedback to reflect on and to put into practice going forward. Mentor coaching is you being coached--on your coaching.
In great mentor coaching, you can expect to:
Work with a veteran mentor coach individually and sometimes as a member of a small group, completing the mentor coaching requirements for earning or renewing your credential,
Master your understanding and use of the ICF's Core Competencies,
Create and select a good recording to send with your application, and to
Get help in navigating the application process."
FYI, group and individual mentor coaching is required for earning and keeping your professional credential: It is the process of you being coached on the essential Core Competencies of our work.
If you've already earned your credential and are ready for monthly challenge and support in a Cohort of veteran coaches, check out Supervision Cohorts with Patty: The focus of supervision is on the personal power and presence and improvisational skills of veteran coaches.
The following SeattleCoach Mentor Coach Team works to offer us the highest and most current application of the Core Competencies. Each one offers both individual and group mentor coaching.
Each one has impressed me with their grit, enthusiasm, hard work, integrity and professionalism.
