Core Competency and Mentor Coaching Weekend

Coming SOON!

Enfield Nova Scotia




We are pleased to invite you to engage in a unique collaborative learning experience with a community of coaches who are ready to explore coaching presence in a new way. We are planning a 2-day experience of Equine Facilitated and Didactic sessions.

This will be a weekend of curious, safe, experiential learning to creatively generate new coaching capacities. Our approach is rooted in our understanding of coaching competence as an evolving process of deepening our coaching presence.  To meet clients with our whole beings, we must be aware of our emotions, bodies and thoughts.

This is not about ‘performing’ competencies. It is about ‘being’ in the experience of openness and immediate feedback as we practice new approaches engaging in the parallel relationship of client and coach. In this experience of being with other sentient beings, deeper self-awareness and capacity will emerge.

What is in it for you?

  • The weekend is ICF approved for 11.5 Core Competency CCE hours and 6 Resource Development CCE hours.

  • Four Mentor Coaching Sessions with each participant all documented by our team for your file and credential renewal application.

  • A focused experience with a maximum of 8 participants.

  • A safe community coaching experience, that offers a unique opportunity to: discover coaching presence in new depth; expand your coaching capacity; learn new coaching approaches and focus. on becoming more fully present.

  • This will be a fun, focused collaborative experience that will expand your coaching community.
