Mentor Coaching

Are you seeking a mentor coach so you can obtain or renew your ICF credential?

New Horizon Strategies coaches are all certified by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) ā€“ and many of us are registered mentor coaches. We can help you secure your ICF credential as a Certified Coach. Credentialing candidates on the following paths are required to participate in Mentor Coaching prior to submitting their application: Associate Certified Coach (ACC) ACSTH and Portfolio paths, Professional Certified Coach (PCC) ACSTH and Portfolio paths, and Master Certified Coach (MCC). Reference ICF for the most up to date information here.

We can help if you are working to:
  • Obtain your ICF certification for the first time

  • Renew your ICF certification before it expires

  • Refresh your coaching skills at any time

Mentor coaching, as prescribed by ICF, consists of coaching and feedback in a collaborative, appreciative, and dialogued process. It is based on an observed or recorded coaching session to help you increase your capability in coaching, in alignment with the ICF core competencies.

As a mentor coach, we provide professional assistance to help you achieve and demonstrate the levels of coaching competency you need to earn your ACC. We will coach you on your coaching skills ā€“ not on practice building, life balance, or other topics unrelated to coaching skill development.

Group Mentor Coaching

(2 Participants, 10 Hours Total)

This option is for coaches interested in not only learning from the mentor, but also from someone else going through their own mentor coaching. Typically, participants that select this option already have someone they know that is ready for mentor coaching at the same time. In general, you can expect a process similar to this:
  • Session 1: Introductions, process, and cadence
  • Session 2: Coaching practice from your training programs; hot topics for both participants
  • Session 3: Check-in for both participants; co-coaching and feedback
  • Sessions 4 & 5: Check-in for one participant; focus opportunity for one participant; reflection from both participants
  • Session 6: Check-in for both participants; group coaching and discussion with focus areas covered together; reflection from both participants
  • Session 7: Check-in for both participants; co-coaching and feedback
  • Sessions 8, 9, and 10: (not necessarily at the end) 1:1 individual sessions with the mentor coach and each participant.

“Thank you for the feedback, resources and for your overall mentorship and guidance. I appreciated and valued our time together. You have exceeded my expectations for what I had in mind when I signed up for an ICF mentor coach. Truly. Iā€™m grateful to have found you and would recommend you to others seeking an ICF mentor coach without hesitation!”
