The mentor coaching program is designed to support credentialed and to-be-credentialed coaches in broadening their coaching skills. The program provides the structure to satisfy the number of hours and knowledge acquisition required to renew a credential or apply to the International Coaching Federation (ICF) at the ACC or PCC level. This also includes any reputable coaching school requesting students to work with a mentor coach.
The program capitalizes on a mindfulness approach in helping mentees realize their full potential by listening and noticing their habits of attention and communication patterns during live coaching sessions. The focus is aimed at guiding the coach mentee in mastering the 11 Core Coaching Competencies and how to integrate them in their unique coaching style. During the program, coach mentees come to realize areas of development that require their attention as well as identify untapped potential. The outcome of such discovery leads to their unique coaching style that integrates effortlessly the 8 Core Coaching Competencies as defined by the ICF:
1- Demonstrates Ethical Practice
2- Embodies a Coaching Mindset
B. Co-Creating the Relationship:
3- Establishes and Maintains Agreements
4- Cultivates Trust and Safety
5- Maintains Presence
C. Communicating Effectively:
6- Listens Actively
7- Evokes Awareness
D. Cultivating Learning and Growth
8- Facilitates Client Growth
Mentor Coaching at GHI provides the opportunity for the coach mentee to share their coaching skills with a credentialed and certified PCC coach who can provide feedback regarding the use of the ICF Core Coaching Competencies. The program takes place over an extended period of time (average 6 months); which allows the mentor coach to listen and provide written and oral feedback and for the coach mentee to reflect and practice the Core Coaching Competencies.
The Mentor Coaching program does not focus on practice building, personal issues, life balance issues, as well as any other personal or professional topics unrelated to the development of the coach mentee’s coaching competencies.
