What is Mentor Coaching?

Mentor coaching means being coached on your coaching skills in preparation for certification as a coach, rather than coaching on work goals, personal elements, life balance or other topics unrelated to the development of your coaching skill. Our Mentor Coaching Package includes 7.5 hours of group mentor coaching (5 x 90-minute sessions) and 3 hours of individual mentor coaching (3 x 60-minute sessions).

Mentor Coaching and the International Coach Federation (ICF)

In order to apply for an ICF credential, you are required to have been coached for a minimum of 10 hours over a minimum of 3 months by a qualified Mentor Coach who holds ICF certification at the same or higher level than that which you are applying for. Of the required 10 hours, up to 7 hours can be group mentor coaching (maximum 10 participants) and at least 3 hours must be one-to-one (1:1) mentor coaching.

Group Mentor Coaching Process

The group sessions are organized so that one or two of the ICF Core Competencies are focused upon in each call. There will be opportunities to discuss each competency, consider what it means and its importance as a coach and share how or when you’ve put it into play. The second half of each call will involve coaching so that all participants have an opportunity to be coach and coachee across the full series of calls and receive feedback from peers and the Mentor Coach.

Individual Mentor Coaching

To fulfil the individual mentor coaching required by the ICF, you will have 3 hours of 1:1 mentor coaching with one of our highly experienced, ICF certified Mentor Coaches.
