Coach Specific Professional Development

Mentor Coaching consists of coaching and feedback between a mentor coach and a mentee coach in a collaborative, appreciative and dialogued process. It is based on observed and/or recorded coaching sessions with a goal to increase a coach’s capability in the profession of coaching. In the context of the ICF this is in alignment with the ICF Core Competencies.

Mentor Coaching is important and relevant when you are:

Applying to the International Coaching Federation (ICF) for your ACC or PCC credential.

Renewing your ACC credential with the ICF.

Wanting to become a better coach and and sharpen your coaching skills.

One-to-One or Group Mentor Coaching

In the end the assistance you receive by working with a mentor coach is always centred on helping you achieve and demonstrate the levels of coaching competency and capability demanded by the credential level with the International Coaching Federation that you wish to attain.

1:1 mentor coaching is centred on receiving feedback on your individual capability when compared with the coaching competencies. A good mentor will help you see your weaknesses and strengths identified in your coaching. In a 1:1mentor coaching relationship your mentor observes/listens, assesses and provides feedback to you.

Our focus in a 1:1 mentor coaching relationship is to work with you to focus on ICF core competency development. We do this by providing oral and consequent discussion on your recorded coaching sessions. This feedback is designed to recognise both strengths and weaknesses with a goal of developing a deeper mastery of coaching.

Group mentor coaching is about you deepening your understanding and application of the coaching competencies in a group setting. It is collaborative and supportive and involved observing, sharing and receiving feedback from your mentor and other coaches.

The ICF requires that at least 3 of your 10 mentoring hours be 1:1, then up to 7 of the remaining hours can be group mentoring.

Coach Supervision

Coaching Supervision helps you gain perspective as a coach and take a broader view of your coaching practice. This deeper level of reflection on what is working for you and what is not is what helps you to develop your practice and hone your craft as a coach.

Coaching Supervision provides a safe environment for coaches to be supported in all aspect of their coaching needs. This concept is not new and the idea of support and supervision with it’s broadest definition is recognised in many other professions including psychology, social work and mental health.

I am an experienced executive and leadership coach with more than 2000 hours of coaching experience. I work as a Coach with several Australian and global coaching organisations and coach across Government, the corporate sector and Not for Profits.

Why Coaches Need Coaches To Help Them Create A Safe And Heathy Coaching Practice?

According to the Association for Coaching, Coaching Supervision is

“a formal and protected time for facilitating in-depth reflection for coaches to discuss their work with someone who is experienced as a Coach. Supervision offers a confidential framework within a collaborative working relationship in which the practice, tasks, process and challenges of the coaching work can be explored.”
Association for Coaching

Regular coach supervision is a clear indication of quality.  It demonstrates to your clients and your peers that you value regular reflection and questioning of our work.

Coaching Supervision is about reflecting on your coaching practice and habits, about looking for areas to grow and experiment.

Different Types of Coach Supervision

One-to One Supervision

In one-to-one supervision an appropriately experienced coach supervisor will use a range of tools and models to work with you on the coaching issues or challenges that you choose discuss. The aim of one-to-one supervision is to develop your competence, capability and capacity as a coach.

 

Group Coach Supervision

Professional group supervision is about reflective practice. In a 60-90 minute session with 6-8 other coaches a coach supervisor will uses different techniques to examine and discuss the issue brought to the table by participants.

 

What does the ‘right’ coach supervisor for me look like?

Finding the ‘right’ supervisor is similar to the way a coachee finds the ‘right’ coach, in that the relationship is critical.

The ICF have suggested the following minimum requirements for coaching supervisors:

• Be an ICF member which implies that the Coaching Supervisor is familiar with and abides by the ICF Ethics and Standards and

• Not be under any sanctions from the ICF Independent Review Board for violations of ethical conduct and

• Be an experienced, mature, preferably credentialed coach – at least 3 years FTE practice and

• Has continued expanding exposure to and knowledge of coaching approaches beyond their original coach training.

Coaching Supervision for ICF Credential Renewal

Coaching Supervision for ICF Credential Renewal

The purpose of coaching supervision is to generate coach insights through guided reflective enquiry that will improve the quality of your coaching; and hence expand your coaching capability and confidence. For this reason, the ICF allow you to count up to 10 hours of Coaching Supervision toward the 40 hours of Continuing Coach Education (CCE) you require for credential renewal.

Further information about Continuing Professional Development (CPD) – including information about what can be counted as Core Competencies and what is counted as Resource Development – is available on the ICF website which can be found at https://coachingfederation.org.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers
A with all things the mindset of someone who is being coached is critical to the level of success they experience. When a coaching client acknowledges their current reality and is prepared to focus on change and growth then real change can occur.
Coaching differs from mentoring in three key ways. Coaching is about an individual working with a coach to bring about change within themselves whilst mentoring is about a relationship between a mentor and a mentee that is valuable to both. Coaches bring individual focus, and mentors bring a network focus. Generally the work of a coach is relatively short-term whilst mentoring can have a much longer term focus.
The answer to this is many varied. The bottom line is that coaches are often at their most effective during periods of change or challenge. Commencing a new role or project is often a trigger for a coaching engagement, as is feedback from peers or a leader that is particularly challenging to hear. Sometimes it is just about an individual pushing themselves to reach the next level for themselves.
This question is impossible to answer. There are just too many coaches and coaching models out there to give a simple answer to this question. As a guide most coaches create coaching programs over periods of time with an up-front or a retainer payment system. As a very general guide, a coaching program over 3 months with fortnightly meetings and some form of psychometrics or 360 review included will usually start at $5000 and go up from there depending on the skills and experience of the coach involved.
Most coaching assignments last several months to six months. There will be regular meetings between coach and client, and many coaches involve managers and other stakeholders in the process. Coaching to improve a technical skill might be of a shorter duration than coaching aimed at leadership development for example.

Mentor Coaching consists of coaching and feedback between a mentor coach and a mentee coach in a collaborative, appreciative and dialogued process. It is based on observed and/or recorded coaching sessions with a goal to increase a coach’s capability in the profession of coaching. In the context of the ICF this is in alignment with the ICF Core Competencies.

You need to complete 10 hours of mentor Coaching if you are preparing to apply to the International Coaching Federation (ICF) for your ACC or PCC credential. You also need to complete 10 hours of Mentor Coaching if your are renewing your ACC credential with the ICF.
