Mentor Coaching

What is mentor coaching?

Mentor Coaching consists of coaching, feedback and suggested targets and is delivered in a collaborative style consisting of a two way dialogue between the mentor and coach.   A Mentor Coach is somebody who has acquired the relevant coach education, credentials and who has a proven track record of success.  For credentialing, the purpose is to increase the coach’s capabilities specifically related to core competencies, markers or frameworks.  Ultimately, a mentor coach’s aim is to help other coaches grow so that they can, in turn, be the best coach possible for their clients.

What is the purpose of mentor coaching?

Mentoring coaching has two main purposes.  To provide: 

  • Professional assistance to help coaches achieve and demonstrate the levels of competency and capability demanded by the desired ICF credentialing level.
  • A space for reflection and professional development opportunities.

The bespoke one-to-one mentor coaching sessions involve an individualised process which includes the following steps:

  • The coach will be asked to share a recorded session of between 30 – 60 minutes in advance.
  • The mentor will listen to the recording prior to the mentoring session in order to prepare notes, targets and points for discussion.
  • The coach will be asked to listen to their recording again and map their performance against the ICF Core Competencies.
  • The coach and mentor will meet together on zoom to discuss the coaching session and agree targets for improvement.  
  • The coach and mentor will partner in designing a way of checking on progress.

What distinguishes from other providers? 

Three unique features from! 

  1. Mentees will be provided with a variety of recordings from different coaches to assess so that they have exposure to ACC, PCC and MCC behaviours and competencies in action.  Areas of strength and ideas for improvement will be discussed during the mentor coaching session.
  2. A transcript of your session will be provided so you will not have to pay for this additional service should you be submitting to ICF, AC or EMCC.
  3. Complimentary access to the Active Listening self-study programme.

What is required by the ICF credentialing process in relation to mentor coaching?

For credentialing purposes, ICF requires that Mentor Coaching should take place over at least three months which allows time for the coach to implement their targets for improvement.  This can be split into seven group mentoring sessions and three or more one-to-one sessions.

What have clients said?

Caroline was one of my Mentor Coaches for my MCC credential as part of the CoachME faculty. It was an amazing journey with her, I felt comfortable, relaxed and so much more confident about submitting my MCC application. Her comments and targets were exactly the same as those from the ICF assessor! I am so grateful to have had Caroline as one of my mentor coaches.  Thank you for the amazing sessions!Anita Seman, MCC, Jakarta, Indonesia
