Coaches pursuing certification through the International Coaching Federation must complete 10 hours of mentor coaching with an ICF certified coach. Of these 10 hours, up to 7 can be group coaching but a minimum of 3 hours must be completed one on one. ICF mentor coaching must adhere to the ICF Code of Ethics, focus on coaching development of the ICF Core Competencies, and span a time period of at least 3 months.
According to the ICF, mentor coaching is defined as “an applicant being coached on their coaching skills rather than coaching on practice building, life balance, or other topics unrelated to the development of an applicant’s coaching skill.” Because of this, Hawthorne Union’s mentor coaching will specifically focus on participants’ ability to coach on the ACC or PCC level according to the ICF Core Competency Rubric through coaching demonstrations, coaching practice, written and/or verbal feedback, skill building, and debriefs of recorded coaching sessions.
Participants will be asked to complete a PCC Marker self assessment at the beginning and end of Mentor Coaching to build awareness and support ongoing development.
During group coaching sessions participants will be asked to coach as well as be coached. Because of the sensitive nature of the coaching sessions and per the ICF Code of Ethics, participants will be expected to keep the content of the group coaching sessions confidential.
For individual coaching sessions it is recommended that participants provide recorded coaching sessions or coach within the scheduled session. Individual mentor coaching sessions can be scheduled at participants’ convenience as long as they span the duration of the ICF required 3 month minimum.
Per the ICF, cohorts are limited to 10 participants.
Payment can be made in full before the cohort begins or participants can use the promo code 50/50 to pay $600 before the cohort starts and $600 before the 6th scheduled group coaching session.
