Frequently asked questions

How does the mentor coaching work?

Over the course of 10 hours and over a minimum of a 3-month period, the mentor coach will undertake a complete review of the ICF Core Competency model with you. They will also listen to your coaching and give specific feedback on how you are evidencing those competencies and will offer a professional opinion as to your level of expertise against the ACC and PCC requirements.

How does a mentor coach work?

Mentor Coaches working with you for credentialing may have different approaches. However, the key focus is that the mentoring is specifically on how a coach evidences the ICF Core competencies. The approach may differ also if you are having only individual sessions or a mix of group and individual. The mentor will provide feedback against the competencies and will help you gauge when you are ready to apply for your credential. At Tracy Sinclair Ltd, our mentors always work towards the PCC Competency level regardless of whether you are aiming for ACC or PCC.

How many sessions do I need to have?

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) requires 10 hours of Mentor Coaching to be completed in order to apply for your ACC/PCC or MCC credential. At least 3 of the hours must be individual mentoring (1-1). The 10 hours must span at least a 3-month period.

Can I work in a group?

Yes, you may work with a group of up to 10 people and have up to 7 hours of group mentor coaching.

How long does an audio recording need to be for mentoring sessions?

When working with Mentor Coaches at Tracy Sinclair Ltd., you will be asked to share two recordings of your coaching work of between 30-40 mins. maximum in length (this is of a complete piece of coaching work each time).

How long does an audio recording need to be for the ICF assessment?

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) requires a recording of a complete coaching session of between 20-60 minutes.

Must my audio recording have a professionally created transcript?

Not necessarily. If you have time yourself, you may transcribe it. This can also offer a valuable development opportunity through the process of reviewing and transcribing your own work. However, it must be verbatim, show Speaker 1 and Speaker 2 and the time that each speaker changes.

Which transcription services do you recommend?

There are a number of services available, and which one you chose will depend upon your budget. Their transcription must meet the requirements noted above.

What part of a coaching session does the mentor need to listen to?

Your mentor needs to hear a complete coaching session, with a beginning, middle and end.

What information do I need to look at before the mentoring starts?

Whether ACC or PCC it is good to review the ICF Core Competencies, ICF Code of Ethics, minimum requirement documents for ACC and PCC, and the PCC markers. All can be found on the ICF website and details of these are sent to you as part of your joining instructions to our Group Mentor Coaching Programme.

Can the mentor help me with building my coaching practice?

Not as part of the 10 hours. You may wish to contract separately with the mentor for this kind of service.

Can the mentor help me with how much I should charge?

Not as part of the 10 hours. You may wish to contract separately with the mentor for this kind of service.

How long are recordings for the 1-1 sessions kept?

ICF's guidelines on the GDPR aspect to this state that: "you mustn’t keep data for longer than necessary." In practice this means: reviewing the length of time you keep personal data; considering the purpose or purposes you hold the information for in deciding whether (and for how long) to retain it; securely deleting information that is no longer needed for this purpose or these purposes; and updating, archiving or securely deleting information if it goes out of date. Tracy Sinclair Ltd. will keep recordings for the duration of the mentoring programme, after which they will be deleted. The ICF will keep a recording for up to 6 months after receipt, after which they will delete it.
