ICF group mentor coaching for ACC, PCC and MCC credentialing to become a more confident coach

by Jennifer Powers ICF certified mentor coach

Like most coaches, you are probably facing big challenges with fewer resources. Good coaching will help your clients break through barriers and discover their best tools for personal and professional success, while allowing you to coach with skill and confidence.

Coaching is different from counseling in that while counseling offers recommended solutions for improvement, coaching is a discovery-based process in which the client is led to create the solution for challenges at hand within themselves, rather than carrying out someone else’s recommendations. Traditional training follows a linear course for learning certain objectives set out by a curriculum. On the other hand, coaching equips individuals to face challenges in the present and future with long-term solutions created by the client with guidance from the coach.

ICF group mentor coaching is all about creating action, forward movement and self-discovery among the group participants.

Group mentor coaching requirement for ICF credentials

Applicants for ICF credentialing are required to demonstrate a set number of hours of mentor coaching. Specific requirement vary by credential level being applied for, such as ACC (Associate Certified Coach), PCC (Professional Certified Coach) and MCC (Master Certified Coach). These ICF credentials require varying amounts of ICF group coaching hours, one-on-one coaching hours and coaching experience. The participants need to submit proof of attending coaching classes and pass the ICF exam to acquire their certification.

For ACC certification, 10 hours of mentoring by a mentor coach, 60 hours of coach training, and 100 hours coaching experience is required. Out of the 10 mentoring hours, 7 hours must be ICF mentor coaching spread over a period of three months. PCC and MCC certifications also require 10 hours of mentoring out of which 7 hours must be in ICF group coaching. Additionally, PCC certification requires 125 hours of coach training and 500 hours of coaching experience, while MCC certification requires 200 hours of coach training and 2,500 hours of coaching experience.

Deepening trust and collaboration among peers

Coaching involves partnering with clients and can help them achieve a variety of goals. Group coaching deepens trust and collaboration among peers as members gain an understanding of what’s keeping them stuck, improve their interpersonal support skills and enhance personal flexibility and adaptability.

While positive feelings may be a natural outcome of coaching, the primary focus remains on creating actionable strategies for achieving goals.

Participants of an ICF mentor coaching group can expect to experience fresh perspectives on personal challenges, enhanced thinking, interpersonal effectiveness, achievement of personally relevant goals and increased confidence in their chosen coaching niches.

In ICF group coaching, the mentor coach provides and encourages an exploratory and learning space between all coaches within the group. While there are objectives in coaching, they are set by the coach with guidance from the mentor coach.
