“The ICF defines the purpose of Mentor Coaching as providing professional assistance in achieving and demonstrating the levels of coaching competency and capability demanded by the desired credential level.”
Mentor Coaching should take place over an extended time (three-month minimum) in a cycle that allows for listening and feedback from the Mentor Coach while also allowing reflection and practice on the part of the individual being mentored.

Helping you grow creating a safe place for you to explore your beliefs, values and what drives your behavior.
Helping you drive and change your behavior from the inside out.
Serving as a sounding board to talk it through and where you can say what you feel without any judgment.
My mentor coaching for certification is based on covering each competency and making sure you know how to apply it in your coaching with your clients.
