COAC070 - Professional Mentor Coaching
This course is aimed at experienced coaches wishing to grow their ability to mentor less experienced coaches and foster their development, as measured by certain ‘industry’ defined competencies. Participants will explore the body of knowledge related to the definition of mentor coaching as distinct from coach supervision, coaching competencies, learning processes, and effective practices for coach-approach feedback. Throughout the course, participants will examine coaching competencies defined by the profession, especially the recently released ICF Updated Competency Model; and examine oral and written feedback strategies for their ability to grow the self-awareness and performance of a coach approach to mentoring. While not a Marker Training program per se, this course will also introduce students to the existing ICF PCC Markers.
