As coaches we have an opportunity in every conversation to co-create experiences with clients which invites feelings of being deeply seen, heard and valued. To engage in this work from a place of honesty and vulnerability we must begin first with being open to seeing the expansive wholeness of who we are as coaches and how our lived experiences shape how we see and communicate with the world around us.

Mentor Coaching with Jo Bennett, ACPC, PCC, ACE

Engage with confidence in a personalized 1:1 space where you can flourish as a coach!

For five years I have mentored clients in the early stages of their coaching journey: individuals in ICF accredited education programs, those applying for an ACC or PCC credential, as well as ICF members renewing their ACC credential. I am specifically trained in mentor coaching, and I am registered as a mentor coach with the ICF.

I take a coach approach with mentor clients to deepen their self reflection skills, collaborating to explore growth edges while celebrating current gifts. There is ample time to steep in the ICF Code of Ethics and Core Competencies for rich alignment. We co-generate thoughtful feedback on two or more recorded calls. My coach clients build on insights discovered during and between our sessions, as they witness their growth in their own client’s results.

More information is available on my website: https://solomojo.ca/icf-mentor-coach/

It is a joy and privilege to work with newer coaches. Their dedication to learning inspires me to grow and thrive as a professional.

I look forward to working with you!
