For Coaches Seeking Credentials


Welcome to Mentor Coaching! You've taken an essential step in your journey as a coach. This investment into yourself will pay off with client success stories and transformed lives! 

This Mentor Coaching Program is for those seeking to refine and grow their coaching skills. You may or may not be going for an ICF (International Coach Federation) or ICCI (International Christian Coaching Institute) credential. Even if you are just beginning the journey to explore coaching, you will learn invaluable skills to use in all your relationships. 

The program consists of group coaching and feedback in a collaborative, appreciative, and dialogued process based on an observed or recorded coaching session to increase your confidence and capability.

You are in the right place if you are 1) curious about coaching or want to learn tools for ministry and life 2) just got your certification and need to get your mentor hours toward your first credential 3) have some experience and want to work on your skills or need more mentor hours for your certification renewal.

Coaching is one of the fastest-growing fields for good reason. It moves clients forward faster. If you are going after your coach credential, you'll gain credibility, as 81% of consumers rate credentialing as important or very important. Credentialed coaches also are able to contract for higher fees which increases annual income and higher client retention and satisfaction.  (2017 ICF Price Waterhouse Cooper Global Coaching Study.)

Group Sessions

One of the most effective ways to work on your coaching skills is in a group dynamic. You’ll have the opportunity to receive personal feedback and interact with other coaches in the group. You'll meet as a group for four 2-hour sessions that will be facilitated live on Zoom. Dates are listed below and times are being considered based on attendees availability.

This group training and mentoring program will help you to:

  • Build confidence in your coaching skills
  • Learn how to structure a session from discovering what the client wants to work on to how to set smart goals. 
  • Discover how to coach the person not the problem.
  • Get your ICF or ICCI mentor coaching hours
  • Learn how to partner with God in your clients coaching journey.
  • Practice and increase learning with peers
  • Learn the tips Jill has learned coaching over 1000 hours at a PCC and CMCLC level

If you prefer 1:1 Mentor Coaching instead of group coaching, please sign up for a Discovery Call for more information.

Individual Sessions

After the group sessions are completed, you'll also have the opportunity to work with Jill Monaco 1:1 for 3 hours of mentor coaching. This will give you time to ask questions, practice your skills on Jill, and review recordings of your coaching sessions. Sessions will be facilitated by phone or Zoom.

Individual sessions will help you to:

  • Review a recorded coaching call

What began as a strategic move on my part to hire a coach to help develop my new business and navigate this journey with someone who also fully understands my core values and beliefs, quickly developed into a lock-in-step partnership that helped me expand not only my vision and understanding for my business but also as a person.  Jill is a great listener and uses that skill to hone in on the below-the-surface questions that are begging to be asked.  She does a remarkable work of creating space that truly allows a client to breathe, emote, and find their way forward, without judgment or agenda.  Jill always makes me feel comfortable and safe regardless the direction of our session conversation, and follows the trajectory of my course correction, gently but honestly, helping me level up and feel confident about my decisions.  I highly recommend Jill as a coach not only for what you get out of sessions, but for what you can reap between, and beyond the fruitful conversations. She is a great coaches coach.
