Mentoring for your ICF credential
Duncan Coppock MCC
Coaches successfully navigating their ICF
credentials frequently find that
Coaching Credentialing can be:
A real sense of accomplishment
A way to increase your marketability and earnings
A professional milestone and confidence boost
A commitment of time and study
Personally and professionally challenging
Enjoyable and satisfying
Frustrating and difficult
Confusing to understand the requirements
This can become even more pronounced when you are
an experienced coach applying for your PCC or MCC qualification.
You may be struggling to understand the application criteria, how
you will be assessed, what is and is not acceptable at each level,
and what recordings you should choose to submit.
As an active assessor for the ICF at PCC and MCC levels
I understand the requirements and processes and partner with coaches
to make your credentialing process more enjoyable and successful.
This includes providing additional resources, models and perspectives
on the core competencies.
If you are applying for your ACC credential then the
requirements are less demanding, but you will still need to pay
attention to all the competencies, especially creating the coaching
agreement. You will also need to send in a recording that clearly
demonstrates your understanding and application of the competencies.
We can work together individually or in a combination of individual
and group sessions.
"Duncan has worked with our Team
of coaches at Talking Talent providing group mentoring, as well
as with me individually on a one to one basis. Duncan was excellent
at managing mentoring with a group of colleagues who work regularly
together. He created an extremely safe environment in which people
felt comfortable being observed coaching as well as receiving feedback
for development. Duncan is always calm and brings really valuable
insights and stretch to everyone. I know the Coaches have all valued
the mentoring sessions and have felt they have helped significantly
with their development.
On a personal level I have benefited from being part of the group
but also have got significant benefit from working with Duncan one
to one. Duncan has always been supportive yet challenging. He has
prompted me when my motivation has dipped and really helped me to
understand the areas I needed to focus on to get my MCC. There were
highs and lows but I always felt able to tackle them with the support
of Duncan. I am pleased to say that I attained my MCC with constructive
feedback on my recordings from Duncan.

I found Duncan as a PCC coach looking to realise MCC.
I had made one application for MCC, which had failed. One of the
qualities of Duncan is that despite his great experience and expertise
in bringing to life coaching competencies, he works with you very
holistically. He is a man who never neglects the whole of who you
are - and so can help you to see beyond your own self-imposed limitation
and blindness. I will always be a grateful for his authenticity
and conversations that we had when I was doubting my ability to
be an MCC. He shared some truths not only about how he saw me but
also about the wider ICF system which played a remarkable role of
taking the pressure off me to perform. I did realise my MCC and
one person I will acknowledge who played a important role in helping
me over the final and yet essential hurdle is Duncan. I have recommended
Duncan to other coaches seeking to grow with a back drop of competencies
and they like me have reported back upon his expertise and many
qualities, I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone wishing
to succeed within the ICF credentialing experience. He is remarkable
man and a valuable guide.
