ICF or EMCC Credentialing Mentor-Coaching

Prepare yourself for your  next coach certification level

WHAT is ICF Mentor Coaching?

The International Coach Federation (ICF) defines Mentor Coaching as collaborative coaching and feedback sessions. The appreciative and dialogued process is based on an observed or recorded coaching session to increase the coach’s capability in coaching, in alignment with the ICF Core Competencies.

ICF Mentor-coaches provides professional assistance in achieving and demonstrating the levels of coaching competency and capability demanded by the desired credential level.

ICF Mentor Coaching should take place over an extended time (three-month minimum) in a cycle that allows for listening and feedback from the Mentor Coach while also allowing reflection and practice on the part of the individual being mentored. More information on ICF mentor-coaching can be found here.

ICF coaches are required to proof a minimum of 10 hours of mentor-coaching / supervision for renewal of their credentials.

ICF Mentor coaches need to have a higher level of credentialling than the coach and need to be trained in PCC markers assessor. 

ICF differentiates mentor-coaching sessions from coach supervision. 

EMCC mentor-coaching for coaches

EMCC Mentor-Coaching

EMCC (European Mentoring and Coaching Council) has a different certification route than ICF. 

EMCC only speaks about ‘supervisors’ while ICF differentiates between mentor coaching and supervision. 

The Purpose of EMCC supervision is concerned with the development of skills, understanding and capacities of the coach. The supervisor is providing a supportive space for the coach or mentor to process the experiences they have had when working with clients.

During the co-creative meetings both are concerned with quality, work standards and ethical integrity.
