coach mentoring

I’m a passionate advocate for the power of coaching.

Since 2000, I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of mentoring many talented, passionate coaches in growing their ideal expression of coaching, living a life they love and strengthening their personal leadership.

I believe coaching is an important link in the accelerated learning, creativity, human relating required in the world today. I’m committed to fostering excellence in coaching, starting with my own work, and extending out to other coaches and the profession.

A few things I bring as a mentor coach:

  • I've been coaching full time since 1994 and a Master Certified Coach since 2003.
  • I'm a Coach U faculty member and have trained hundreds of coaches in the past ten years.
  • I'm an Associate faculty member, Royal Roads University, Executive Coaching Program since 2008.
  • I have a background as a career transition specialist.
  • I've been joyfully, and profitably self-employed for over twelve years.
I keep a few spaces open in my practice to mentor coaches wth a vision and commitment to bringing coaching to their communities.

What can I expect?

Our mentor coaching will focus in three areas: personal development; coaching proficiency and practice building.

Personal Development:
The heart of being a masterful coach and having a successful coaching practice is growing “you.” We will dramatically strengthen your personal foundation for success.

Coaching Development:
You’re probably a natural coach, and have been empowering others for years. Now it’s time to harness your gift. We’ll focus on growing your competence and confidence with the skills, tools, models of coaching. You’ll make the shift to truly “being” a coach.

Practice Development
It takes more that passion to be a professional coach. It takes learning the nuts and bolts of growing a successful business. We’ll address all aspects of establishing your business foundation and unique ways of attracting clients.

What kinds of way could I use you as a mentor coach?

As in all coaching relationships, you set the focus and agenda of our work together. We’ll design a coaching program that meets your unique needs and intentions. Some of the ways I’ve empowered coaches include:

Develop “you”:

  • Uncover and leverage your natural strengths – the core of your brand
  • Surface and transform the beliefs that hold you back
  • Eliminate “energy leaks” and establish your personal success habits
  • Cultivate your courage and confidence to go public with your passion
  • Develop emotional resilience for the ups and downs of building a successful business

Grow your coaching

  • Explore the ICF competencies so they become meaningful to you
  • Discuss client situations and role play skills
  • Review your coaching and get feedback
  • Support your preparation for credentialing

Establish your coaching practice

  • Make the mental shift from employee to business owner
  • Articulate your inspiring vision of your lifestyle and business
  • Discover and craft your core message
  • Create a functional work space/office you love
  • Set up the business basics like billing, record keeping, client management, taxes, etc.
  • Produce attractive marketing and client materials
  • Develop your referral network and ways of attracting clients

"What is a coaching conversation? It is a conversation in which you are burning with intention to have an impact. It is a conversation where you are speaking and listening from a total commitment to cause that person's success.

It is a conversation where you extend to people an "A" [see their greatness], even when they disappoint you or make mistakes. It is a conversation where you provide the kind of insightful feedback that rips the blinders off.

It's a conversation where people see new possibilities and breakthrough barriers, showing up in an entirely new way. And it is a conversation where people walk away feeling inspired, empowered and able to act.
