Master Certified Coach | Executive Coach | Mentor Coach | 2019 ICF Charlotte Chapter Past President

A few years ago, I was asked by another coach to provide ICF mentor coaching for their ACC certification. I declined, even with lots of coaching experience (2600+ coaching hours).

My belief is mentor coaches elevate their value, deepen their knowledge and are better prepared after completing a certification process. We learn about our own biases, how to provide evidenced based feedback and to avoid personal opinions.

Because of that one question, I became a Certified Mentor Coach (35 CCEUs). Let me support you in reaching your next level of competency.
