We believe the pursuit of coaching skills is a noble endeavor and in service of humanity. The ICF Core Competency model is, in principle, the backbone of many coach skill development programs. While many coach education and development organizations dress up the model, obscure concepts, and change terms to brand, trademark, and copyright, we believe this introduces confusion among professional coaches.
Rather than stand in front of the ICF Core Competency Model and act as if we created something radically better, we stand behind it. We hold it as the most powerful, precise, teachable, and evidence-based coaching model available.
Many coaching models are deeply intertwined with ancient philosophy, religion, mysticism, and the metaphysical. We have a deep appreciation for these approaches to coaching, AND we take a different approach.
Modern science guides the evolution of evidence-based coaching. We embrace the contributions made by neurobiology, sociology, positive psychology, and other fields.
We believe coaches deserve to work with mentor coaches who possess the education, knowledge, and skills to prepare coaches for their performance evaluation. Our faculty consists only of current ICF Assessors and those working under the direction and supervision of an ICF Assessor and Master Certified Coach.
To meet the ICF requirement for mentor coaching, a minimum of three of the ten mentoring hours must be one-to-one with a mentor coach. Group mentoring may count for a maximum of seven hours towards the mentoring requirement. Full participation in four group sessions meets the group requirement, and the addition of the included 3 individual sessions completes the ten-hour requirement. Participants can earn up to 26 hours of Core Competency Continuing Coach Education units (CCEs) as an ICF-accredited program.
This program qualifies for a maximum of 36 hours of Core Competency CCEs or 10 hours of mentor coaching plus 26 hours of Core Competency CCEs. ICF currently allows these continuing education hours to be applied toward the education hours required to apply for PCC. Many of our students combine the hours earned in this program with the 104 hours of coach-specific education they received from CTI in order to meet the required 125 Coach Education hours required for PCC.
This program prepares you to earn an ICF credential. You must apply to ICF and pass the Performance Evaluation to earn your credential. You are responsible for understanding and meeting the ICF requirements for earning your credential. We can’t guarantee your results.
