MENTORING FOR COACHES
When we start coaching there is much to focus on, many areas to expend our valuable resources of energy, time and money. To make thing clearer and simpler Belinda breaks them down into the 3P’S OF SUSTAINABLE COACHING SUCCESS:
Practice – Personal – Professional Development
Your business skills, your business systems and your ability to follow these systems. (Belinda's step by step guide)
Your strong personal foundation that keeps you grounded so you won’t be uprooted and blown around by the winds of life.
(lots of churn)
Your coach specific training, your professional association and your own coach. (ICF Credentialing)
3P's of Sustainable Coaching Success © Belinda M 2021
This 3P’s model explains why it is essential to have strength in all three areas if you want a sustainable and successful coaching business.
If you have strength in only two areas, just like a stool with one short leg, your ride will be wobbly and uncomfortable. And with just the one strength, the stool’s equivalent of two short legs, you will most likely fall off!

“Remember, what is unique about me as your Mentor Coach is that I’m a seasoned MCC, I have successfully completed both the ICF PCC Markers, and ICF MCC Assessor trainings, so I’m very clear on what is required in your ICF exams – and will be able to assess your current level of coaching, and identify any gaps quickly and give you solid, tangible, actionable feedback. Given I was one of three authors of the ICF’s Minimum Skills Requirements documents (which was truly a labor of love), I eat/breathe/quote the ICF’s 11 Core Competencies… even under water!”

THE ICF DEFINITION OF COACHING SUPERVISION
Coaching supervision is a collaborative learning practice to continually build the capacity of the coach through reflective dialogue for the benefit of both coaches and clients.
ICF CREDENTIALING AND SUPERVISION
One of the best ways to grow your business and attract clients is to become credentialed with the International Coaching Federation. This not only makes you more credible to prospects and current clients; it SETS YOU APART from the myriad of people out there calling themselves a coach. An ICF credential is your differentiator in the market place. Oh, and it also gives you credibility with yourself!
Coaching Supervision is distinct from Mentor Coaching for Credentialing. Mentor Coaching focuses on the development of coaching skills mainly in the context of initial development. Coaching Supervision focuses on the development of the coach’s capacity through offering a richer and broader opportunity for support and development. In Coaching Supervision, the coach is invited to focus much more on what is going on in their process and where the personal may be intruding on the professional. Coaching supervision creates a safe environment for the coach to share their successes and failures in becoming masterful in the way they work with their clients. More details on Coaching Supervision can be found on this page of the ICF website.

DIANA PETTIE, PCC (SOON TO BE MCC)
“What I really enjoyed about working with Belinda as a Mentor for my MCC application was the level of detail provided with my feedback. This gave me a strong understanding of my strengths as a Coach, which Belinda encouraged celebrating and my opportunities. Belinda also made me feel safe in what can be a vulnerable journey, making the experience pleasurable.”
