Goal and Approach
Expand your coaching confidence and competence. Take a deeper journey through the ICF Core Competencies, swing out of your current comfort zone, grow as a professional coach and receive personal 1 to 1 feedback from Steve Mitten CPCC, MCC. (So that you might enjoy more success and have a greater impact with your clients.)
We will draw from the fields of neuroscience, emotional intelligence, mindfulness, myth, positive and developmental psychology to deepen our skills (and learn how to apply them practically to a diversity of clients) in a rich, interactive, learning environment. We want to grow as an individual and as a professional coach and accumulate the experience and 10 Mentor Hours you need for your ICF credential.
– 12 weeks in duration.
– 1 one hour group call every 2 weeks.
– 1 dyad or triad peer coaching session every 2 weeks.
– 1 one to one 45 minute duration call with Steve every 3 weeks (4 in total).
(Totaling 7 hours of group calls and 3 hours of 1 to 1 time with Steve to meet the ICF requirements for coaches seeking or renewing their ACC or PCC.)
1 to 1 work
We can tailor the 1 to 1 calls with Steve to be of most use to you. Typically participants greatly benefit from client call supervisions and debriefs, or coach the coach sessions where you can coach me and receive feedback. Generally we are wanting to identify your strengths and work on any areas where you would benefit from additional support, answer client situation questions and establish best practices.
Reciprocal Peer Coaching
Participants are supported to organize into dyads or groups of three to peer coach and supply feedback to each other. These calls can also be recorded to be used for supervision sessions in your 1 to 1 calls.
Group Calls – Typically 6 – 8 participants (10 Max)
Each call we will work on ICF core competencies, learn advanced techniques of working with the competencies, deal with client situations, learn how to adapt coaching to a variety of client situations, discuss common challenges, and have plenty of time for Q and A.
You will grow as an individual and professional coach and learn how to adapt and apply coaching skills to various situations, topics and client types.
Competencies covered will include:
A. Setting the Foundation
1. Meeting Ethical Guidelines and Professional Standards
2. Establishing the Coaching Agreement
B. Co-creating the Relationship
3. Establishing Trust and Intimacy with the Client
4. Coaching Presence
