ICF Mentor Coach Registry
Mentor Coaching is an important requirement of the ICF Credentialing process and is vital to the development and growth of the individual seeking an ICF Credential.
According to ICF, Mentor Coaching “Provides professional services to develop the required coaching skills for an ICF Credential. This consists of coaching and feedback in a collaborative, appreciative and dialogued process based on observation of live or recorded coaching sessions, to increase the coach’s capability and consistent application of ICF Core Competencies in their coaching practice.”
Working with a qualified ICF Mentor Coach provides the opportunity to share your coaching skills with someone who can provide feedback regarding your use of the ICF Core Competencies. Mentor Coaching should take place over a period of at least three months in a cycle that allows for listening and feedback from the Mentor Coach, and reflection and practice on the part of the individual being mentored.
