This course is designed for coach practitioners who seek to work as Mentor Coaches in the world and wish to receive training in those specific competencies. inviteCHANGE pioneered both competencies and a training course for this purpose and introduced this to the global market in 2008. Participants engage with each other every other week for a total of fourteen 2-hour sessions delivered via live video via Zoom, an Internet-based audio and visual platform. The design allows for simultaneous learning of the Mentor Coach competencies with deepening learning about the ICF Core Coaching Competencies at every stage of development, including the most artful and demanding level of MCC.
Through reading, discussion, demonstration, peer learning labs, course leader and peer reflections and written reflections on learning, participants will engage multiple learning styles in order to embody best practices and characteristic behaviors of Mentor Coaches.
An additional element invites engagement in peer triads. Peer interaction allows for safe experimentation with the mentor coach competencies. In addition, you enjoy an opportunity to prepare written feedback for coach development that complements your learning for how to deliver, stage appropriate, verbal reflections that strengthen a practitioner's demonstration of the ICF competencies, and opens a clear and reasonable path for stretch development.
Participants will also be supported with forms and recommended processes for establishing Mentor Coaching as a line of business with individuals and groups.
