Gain confidence as a coach as you earn your certification

by Jennifer Powers ICF certified mentor coach

Mentor coaching is a mandatory part of your coach certification journey. Whether you are renewing your International Coach Federation (ICF) credential or seeking accreditation for the first time, certified group mentor coaching will help build your coaching capability around the ICF Core Competencies.

The ICF requires coaches on their credentialing path to complete 10 hours of mentor coaching out of which 7 hours should be certified group mentor coaching and 3 hours one-on-one or individual mentor coaching. The group being mentored may not consist of more than 10 participants. Certified group mentor coaching should take place over a minimum of three months in a cycle that allows for listening, feedback, reflection and practice by the Mentor Coach.

Get to know what ICF assessors evaluate in coaches

Certified group mentor coaching sessions are organized so that one or two of the ICF Core Competencies are focused upon in each call. All participants will have the opportunity to be a coach and be coached across the full series of calls. You will be apprised of what assessors evaluate in relation to each competency, and the minimum level of skill competency required for the coaching credential. You will also be told about non-coaching behaviors that might prevent the successful completion of your ICF performance evaluation process. You will be encouraged to strive to meet the markers for your level of coaching certification while honoring your particular coaching style.

Gain clarity on skill use

Familiarity with the code of ethics and its application is required for all levels of coaching for demonstrating a strong ethical understanding of coaching. The ICF strongly believes that clients receive real and substantive value from Mentor Coaches. This value rests in the Mentor Coach’s complete attention to the client and support to their agenda. Additionally, the ICF notes that if an applicant is not clear on basic foundation exploration and evoking skills, and lacks the clarity of skill use, they may not be able to achieve a passing score for the credentialing exam and credential at any level would be denied.
