Mentor coaching is ‘observed coaching with feedback against a set of competencies, that sharpens the coach’s all-round presence’

Mentor Coach Training

Becoming a one-to-one Mentor Coach

  • Are you driven to professionalise the coaching industry?
  • Are you motivated to share what you have learned with other coaches about what makes great coaching?
  • Do you see a need for coaches around you to sharpen their edge?
  • Perhaps you relish the idea of learning more yourself by mentor coaching others?
  • Or maybe you are looking to develop your business and add an additional revenue stream?

Mentor coaching will enable you to do all of these things. 

Mentor coaching is ‘observed coaching with feedback against a set of competencies, that sharpens the coach’s all-round presence’ (Norman, 2018).  As the Mentor Coach, we are enabling coaches to see their blind-spots (Eckstein, 1969) and sharpen their coaching edge that has become dulled over time.  it’s important to support and challenge coaches to re-sharpen their edge, repeatedly, so that they can be the best coach they can be for their thinkers. This will increase the reputation of the coaching industry, as more thinkers experience great coaching that moves them forward and enables them to sustain change.

  • Experienced coaches who are looking to become Mentor Coaches
  • Coaches looking to sharpen their skills as a coach, as you will experience mentor coaching as part of the programme
