If you are serious about developing your skill, mentor coaching is, without doubt, the fastest and most effective way of becoming an extraordinary coach. Learning and reflective practice are useful. Listening to recordings of your own sessions – and how thinkers respond to your coaching is what counts! That’s why ICF require all coaches applying for accreditation to work with a mentor coach.
