What is Mentoring?
According to the ICF, mentor coaching is defined as “an applicant being coached on their coaching skills rather than coaching on practice building, life balance, or other topics unrelated to the development of an applicant’s coaching skill.”
What are the requirements?
ICF mentor coaching must adhere to the ICF Code of Ethics, focus on coaching development of the ICF Core Competencies, and span a time period of at least 3 months.
- 10 hours of mentoring
- Of the 10 hours, 7 can be group coaching
- 3 hours must be completed one on one
How does it work?
We will specifically focus on participants’ ability to coach on the ACC or PCC level according to the ICF Core Competency Rubric through coaching demonstrations, coaching practice, written and/or verbal feedback, skill building, and debriefs of recorded coaching sessions.
In individual sessions:
- participants provide recorded coaching sessions or coach within the scheduled session
- sessions can be scheduled at participants’ convenience as long as they span the duration of the ICF required 3 month minimum.
In a group coaching:
- participants will be asked to coach as well as be coached
- participants will be expected to keep the content of the group coaching sessions confidential as per the ICF Code of Ethics
- cohorts are limited to 10 participants
