Mentor coaching in small groups for ICF credentialing

Jennifer Powers helps coaches with the required group mentor coaching hours for applying or renewing for ACC, PCC and MCC credentialing. She provides 10-hour mentor coaching for ICF credentialing, out of which 7 hours will be group mentor coaching, while the remaining 3 hours will be one-on-one coaching. This mixed format is developed as per ICF guidelines. In group mentor coaching, the coaches get the chance to coach and be coached by peers. They experience a unique group synergy which is not possible with one-on-one mentor coaching. Moreover, group mentor coaching helps in reducing the cost of coaching for the mentees as the costs are shared among the participants. To ensure that personalized attention is provided to each participant during the group mentor coaching, not more than 10 participants are allowed in each group.

Helping you master the coaching process

The remaining 3 hours are one-on-one coaching where Jennifer Powers provides highly focused and dedicated feedback to the mentee on their strengths, and the areas of coaching competencies that they need to improve upon. 10-hour mentor coaching is spread over a period of three months to ensure the incorporation of coaching competencies and skills by mentee-coaches. The group mentor coaching sessions are designed by Jennifer Powers to support the coaches to master the ICF core competencies. It includes the rigorous practice of ICF core coaching competencies to help the coaches master their coaching process and accelerate their learning.

Feedback sessions are followed in-between wherein Jennifer Powers will articulate with specific observations she makes about the mentee’s coaching practices. The feedback is delivered to the mentees with sensitivity to the impact of the feedback.

Jennifer Powers demonstrates the ability to self-manage relative to any coaching model preferences and stays focused on the skills assessment of the mentee during her group mentor coaching sessions related to the core coaching competencies of the mentees.
