Mentor Coaching

Mentor Coaching for an ICF Credential consists of coaching and feedback in a collaborative, appreciative and dialogued process based on an observed or recorded coaching session to increase the coach’s capability in coaching, in alignment with the ICF Core Competencies.


Laser Focused Mentor Coaching will give you valued feedback on your use of the ICF coaching core competencies in your recorded coaching session.  You will submit a recording 1 week prior to our session which I will listen to and prepare feedback.  I will email you a feedback form and we will do a deeper dive on our call.  This program is perfect for the coach who is either currently in their training program or just completed a training program and need to fulfill the Mentor hours.


In our Refresh and Focused Mentor Coaching we spend half of our time refreshing your knowledge base of the ICF Coaching Core Competencies and half our time giving real time feedback on your recording of a coaching session.  The first session of the month will be a ½ hour session focused on a competency.  The second session of the month we will listen to a recorded session with the Mentor guiding you through a self-assessment and then providing feedback on the ICF Coaching Core Competencies.  If you’ve been out of your training for a while this is the perfect program for you!


Our mentor group coaching is a wonderful opportunity to grow with other coaches as we are on the mentor journey. Shawn Preuss has taught Professional Life Coaching at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, has her own accredited CoachLeader Academy and offers this opportunity to continue the development of the coaching profession.

Group coaching may count for a maximum of seven hours toward the mentoring requirement.  A minimum of three of the 10 mentoring hours must be one-on-one coaching with the mentor. Participants will submit a recording in the 1st month and the 6th month for feedback in a one on one session.


This is an opportunity to learn from other coaches, continue to grow as a coach and grow your coaching community. PCLA CoachShare Retreats are currently virtual.  Hopefully in 2021 we will move back to a ‘in-person’ format.   Our virtual 2 hour retreats will alternate between Business Development, Coaching Core Competencies and tools, tactics, games and anything else that will support developing as a professional coach. You will receive RD CCE’s or CC CCE’s depending on what is being presented!

As a professional coach, you also have the opportunity to present and have your CoachShare fee waived!  If you have a methodology, framework, tool or game you would like to share with the group, reach out to!  Join us for your continued growth and development!
