Group Mentor Coaching with Cathy Shaughnessy, MCC

A message from Cathy “I’ve personally provided over 375 hours of direct mentor coaching AND I still coach (over 5000 hours and counting), so I know the ropes. I’ll be showing you exactly how quickly you can ratchet your mastery of the ICF coaching competencies up a notch or two. Come join us for Mentor Groups! Earn 7 mentor coaching hours and 7 CCE's. You can also work with me to earn an additional 3 individual mentor coaching hours and 3 more CCE's.
