“The Mentor Coaching Certification Program offers new ways to practice coaching and mentor coaching. The great learning environment allows participants to develop skills to go to the next level of performance. The facilitator provided an excellent program and showed commitment to each participant.”


“The Mentor Coaching Certification Program is a transformational experience. I enjoyed the learning process that made a difference in my practice. Highly recommended.”


“I have been working for many years facilitating ACTP programs from ICF, but I was not very familiar with the competency model. The certification program has been a wonderful experience to build skills to provide effective feedback. The program is dynamic and interactive. I highly recommended it.”


“It was a good blend of theory and practice based on the ICF Competencies. I felt my coaching improved as well as I learned how to mentor coach effectively.”


“If I could have predicted how much fun mentor coaching would be, I would not have thought twice before signing up for this training. Coaching students are highly motivated, many are talented, and with the help of mentor coaching, they can make a significant impact. Thus, the ripple effect of mentor coaching can be wide-reaching. If you are a coach looking for a greater diversity of tasks, mentor coaching is the perfect complement. It requires no overhead beyond the training to become certified and allows for easy flexibility of scheduling around current professional activities.”
