Individual and Group Mentor Coaching To Meet Your ICF Credential Requirements

The Coaching Academy for Leaders
Mentor Coaching

In compliance with the new ICF Coach Credentialing Standards (2022), The Coaching Academy for Leaders is proud to offer Mentor Coaching to our students!

What Is Mentor Coaching?

Mentor Coaching provides professional assistance in learning and demonstrating the levels of coaching competency and capability required for the desired credential level.

Mentor Coaching for an ICF Credential consists of observing and feedback in a collaborative and appreciative process based on an observed or recorded coaching session to increase the coach’s capability to coach at a level that is in alignment with the ICF Core Competencies.

Mentor Coaching for ICF Credentials

Students who wish to pursue credentialing with the ICF must participate in Mentor Coaching prior to submitting their application. If you wish to pursue your ACC, PCC or MCC credentials (or renew your ACC), mentor coaching is required. You can view the ICF requirements here.

Our Group Mentor Coaching Program

Our group mentor coaching program meets the ICF requirements for mentor coaching, so you can pursue and achieve your accreditation!

All our Mentor Coaches are listed on the ICF Mentor Coach Registry and hold a valid PCC or MCC credential.

You will be mentored on your coaching skills rather than on practice building, life balance, or other topics unrelated to the development of your coaching skill. Your mentoring will be a development process that takes place in a repetitive cycle of receiving feedback regarding your coaching, reflecting on this feedback, and practicing new skills, focusing on using the ICF core competencies.
