If you are an aspiring MCC, let’s talk! If you want to know some things first, for me, mastery is a journey of discovery rather than a badge of honour and there’s often some stuff to leave behind. The ICF have their definitions which are useful – and at its heart it is about
- true partnership
- not knowing
- edgy listening
As you explore whether this is right for you, it will be useful for you to make a recording (30-60 minutes) of a conversation and listen to it yourself against that list. Send me the recording and some reflections, I’ll listen to some of it too and then we can talk about whether we both think you’re ready for the next part of the journey and whether we would like to travel that together.
If you decide to work with me, this forms part of our first session. If not, I’ll just invite you to make a donation to the Motor Neurone Disease Association which is close to my heart – and where I am doing some significant learning about presence.
How do we work?
There are many strands to the path to mastery. When we start, you will have free access to masterclasses that I have recorded about mastery in all the ICF competencies. You can count these as asynchronous training hours. This means that our one to one time is about development more than teaching.
Together, we will listen to recordings. One recording might give us enough material for a number of sessions. We start by listening to the person you are coaching and noticing partnership and presence. We come to what you did or didn’t do later on. The relationship and its impact is always a great place to start – and you can start to do that before we meet!
When I mentor coaches, my fee is the fee that you charge your corporate clients. That makes this process accessible to all. You’re fees will vary and so I invite you to suggest a number that you think is fair, and we can talk about it.
For MCC, I recommend that you start when you have 1750 hours coaching or 1 year before you reach the 2500 hours or your PCC renewal date. It’s not easy to make this journey quickly if you need to simplify!
I do and I don’t run groups for aspiring MCCs. At this level of your coaching journey, you need to be in groups that work well together and serve your learning needs. I start aspiring MCCs with 1-1s. If there are others at your stage who would like to be in a group, I will talk with you about it. If you agree, we try out one group session. You pay your fair share of the group hour. I check in with you after (and outside) the group if you’d like to do that again. It has to work for you. If you come with your own group, that’s a different conversation!
