Coaching Excellence (Mentor Coaching)

(12 or 15 ICF training hours)

You have some coaching training and you've been coaching others. And now you want to lift your game.

It's time to take your coaching skills to the next level. Coaching Excellence (Mentor-Coaching) advances your skills and abilities as a coach. We help you to:

  • Work off the rough edges in your coaching.
  • Build confidence.
  • Coach the person not the problem.
  • See greater client results.
  • Get, or renew, your ICF coaching credential.
We use a combination of 4 group and 3 hours of individual sessions, all over 3 months with one of our qualified mentor coach Instructors. The groups are limited to 10 participants to allow you to observe and practice coaching skills to build confidence in the 2019 revised ICF Core Coaching Competencies.   

We use a process called Mentor-Coaching, which is required to become a certified coach through the International Coach Federation. This course will build your coaching abilities and meet the ICF requirements for mentor-coaching.

There are two versions of Coaching Excellence (Mentor-Coaching), one for getting your ACC and one for renewing an ACC and going for a PCC. The Coaching Excellence for ACC will prepare you for the ICF Associate Certified Coach (ACC) application. The Coaching Excellence for PCC will prepare for your PCC application, or renew your ACC. The ACC program earns 12 ICF ACSTH training hours and the PCC version earns 15 ICF ACSTH training hours. Both also fulfill 10 hours of qualified mentor-coaching you need for your ICF coach credential application.

What Participants are saying...

"One of the most helpful things I have done up to this point in making progress towards my coaching goals. 
My mentor-coach did an excellent job in gently prodding me in moving forward 
in ways that I had not even thought about up to this point."

"Just writing to let you know that I recently learned that I have been granted my ACC credential by the ICF. Thanks for your help and support! The mentor coaching was hugely helpful, not only in passing the exam, but in improving as a coach. Keep up the good work!"
