Sharpening my Coaching Competency

Mentor Coaching Opportunity

Participant Feedback

Brian and Gail, the perfect combination of mentor coaches, offer both a supportive, safe space while also providing insightful, up to date (with ICF) comments and feedback to help you develop and take your coaching to the next level. They truly appreciate each person's individual approach and cater to your style while also ensuring ICF best practice. I consider their support now part of my developmental toolkit to make my coaching even more impactful now and into the future. Thank you for your big hearts, savvy insights and encouraging and supportive feedback.

Coaches……Is this for you?


  • Are you needing Mentor Coaching to facilitate your application to ICF for a coaching credential?

  • Are you renewing your ACC?

  • Are you wanting to explore your growing edges to take your coaching to the next level?


The ICF Mentor Coaching Requirements


The ICF requires that all applicants for credential (ACC, PCC, MCC) have 10 hours of mentor coaching. Applicants renewing their ACC must have an additional 10 hours of mentor coaching.


Mentor Coaching should take place over an extended time (three-month minimum) in a cycle that allows for listening and feedback from the Mentor Coach while also allowing reflection and practice. It must be completed before the applicate date for the credential or renewal.


At least three of the hours must be individual mentor coaching. Up to seven hours can be completed in a group coaching arrangement.


The credential application requires information about the mentor coach, and the timeframe and number of hours of the of the mentor coaching.


While the applicant is not required to submit documentation of the mentor coaching with the application, there is requirement for confirmation if asked.




COVID 19 has created challenges and opportunities for coming together in a meaningful way to

explore what matters to us. Mentor coaching according to the ICF consists of “coaching and feedback in a collaborative, appreciative and dialogued process.”   Engaging with us in a virtual environment where we can observe and document (as necessary) coaching competencies meets the ICF requirements for mentor coaching.


We are pleased to invite you join us in a virtual community to experience mentor coaching designed in a way to create openness and provide the opportunity for immediate feedback regarding coaching competency and effectiveness so as to increase your capability in coaching.
