Mentor coaching is about sharpening oneself as a coach and being coached on International Coaching Federation’s, (ICF’s) core competencies. You can find them here: https://coachingfederation.org/core-competencies . Together we identify how I can best support you in developing your coaching skills. In mentor coaching, there may be elements of guidance and tips when, for example, you are stuck with a client or may need a new tool or model.
Professional coaches constantly strive to perfection their own coaching skills. For me, it is an incredible kick to get mentor coaching from an experienced coach since I always aim to reach a higher level. This is what I hope to be able to contribute to if you choose me as your mentor coach.
Mentor coaching can be done in several different ways, for example:
I really felt that you helped me. I have had great confidence in you and felt that I could speak openly. You are good at listening and that helped me further. I wrote down helpful things in our conversations that I keep in mind when I coach. I have improved mirroring and becoming that guide that a coach sometimes should be.
The mentor coaching has helped me in many areas. Among other things, it has given me greater self-confidence as a coach as I knew that I had you "with me" in the conversations. After our conversations, I have become clearer and better at keeping the structure in my coaching. I have learned that I can listen and be supportive and at the same time "tough" with the structure without it damaging the relationship between me and the client. In fact it just gets better.
I felt our mentor coaching gave me insight on what it takes to become a PCC coach and what areas I need to improve. I learned a lot about what strengths I have in my coaching, which was good for my confidence as a coach. It gave me a lot to transcribe the questions I asked in the recorded conversations and I thought recording sessions and then reflecting together on them was an unexpectedly good technique.
"Nina is a very good mentor coach and if I need mentoring again I will come back to her! The mentor coaching gave me a lot. I got a useful reminder on how to explore the positive and what works and making the client focus on that. I also realized that I need to be clearer in my agreements with the client. This is the first time a mentor coach asks me to record a session that we can reflect on. It was very good, it really gave a lot, both professionally and privately."
"I have felt during the coaching sessions that you connected very well with me. You were understanding, open for what I told you without judgment. This allowed me to be myself and explore my own possibilities without the feeling that I had to comply with someone else's expectations. You helped me to create awareness and organize my mind so I could take my next steps. This was not an easy task since sometimes I can be all over the place! You did a very good job. You have strengthened my confidence by showing me what I can and what is useful for me. That has helped me building towards a future of possibilities. I have copied this with pride in the way I work with my coachees and the effect is fantastically powerful."
The mentor coach group (which will be a mix of the ACC and the PCC level) meets virtually on zoom three times. Each group meeting is 1 hour and 40 minutes, a total of 5 hours. In addition, you will get 5 hours of individual sessions. The ICF require only 3 hours of individual mentor coaching, but I have chosen to put more emphasis on these since I have noticed that more individual support is often needed and highly appreciated especially at the PCC level.
Prerequisites: That you have a diploma from a coach-specific training, minimum on ACC level, and that you coach actively during the mentor coaching program.
