LIVE IT TO GIVE IT

There’s no limit to what you can learn or the impact you can make in the world as a Wayfinder.

As a graduate of Wayfinder Life Coach Training, you know that coaching is an art that requires ongoing practice. You are “living it to give it” in the most powerful way when you strengthen your coaching skills.

Every so often, we could all use a “tune-up”—a chance to brush up our coaching skills—and when we connect with our fellow Wayfinders, we don’t feel like we’re working in a vacuum.

That’s why we’re excited to offer Mentoring for Wayfinders!

This 3-month program is an opportunity for you to fine-tune your use of the Wayfinder tools alongside a small group of fellow coaches and two expert mentors. You can also earn continuing education units for an ICF credential.

If you’ve been looking for practice partners, to get feedback from experienced Master Coaches, to boost your credentials, and/or to connect with a supportive community of fellow Wayfinders, then Mentoring for Wayfinders is for you.

WHAT YOU GET

Simply put, Mentoring for Wayfinders is the opportunity to extend your Wayfinder Life Coach Training experience. You’ll be able to benefit from support, accountability, and camaraderie as you build on the skills you learned and work toward your coaching goals.

Coach-the-Coach-Style Small Groups with Expert Mentors

With two Wayfinder Master Coach Mentors and no more than ten participants per group, you’ll be able to review and practice your Wayfinding coaching skills, engage in meaningful discussions, and receive valuable feedback.

You’ll meet for seven 90-minute Coach-the-Coach-style group classes over the three months of the course.

The consistently scheduled, structured time allows for greater accountability as you work toward your coaching goals. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions about various coaching situations that you’ve encountered.

You’ll have the opportunity to coach—and be coached—at least twice during the program, and the classes will be recorded for you.

One-on-One Mentoring Sessions

Because it can be so difficult to assess your own effectiveness as a coach, you’ll receive three individual 60-minute mentoring sessions with one of your Master Coach Mentors to receive guidance and to deepen your skills.

These mentoring sessions will allow you to have more in-depth dialog with your Mentor about your specific coaching challenges and goals.

ICF Credential Benefits

Mentoring for Wayfinders is not only an investment in your Wayfinding skills but also your professional credentials. You can earn continuing education units that count toward maintaining or advancing your International Coach Federation (ICF) credential.

  • If you’re a Wayfinder Coach seeking an ICF credential through their portfolio path, this program will give you the ten mentoring hours required to apply for an ACC or PCC credential and two additional coach training hours.
  • If you are an ACC-credentialed coach seeking to renew your ICF credential, you will earn the ten mentoring hours required to renew and two additional continuing education credits (CCEs).
  • If you’re an ICF-credentialed coach at any level, this program would give you 12 CCE units for your credential renewal.

At the end of the course, you’ll receive a letter of participation attesting to the number of classes and sessions you attended live. (Live attendance is required if you want to earn continuing education units.)

A Dedicated Online Community

Our shared experience as Wayfinders is a special bond, and the online community space dedicated to your group will allow you to connect with each other for discussions between classes, additional practice opportunities, mutual support, and accountability.

The space will also house all of the course materials: the participation agreement, call schedule, zoom details, and recording links.

And last, but certainly not least, when Wayfinders get together in any space, there will be laughter and fun!

How It Works

One week before the first class, you’ll gain access to a private community space dedicated to your mentorship group. This space will remain open until two months after the last class.

The group classes and individual mentoring sessions will be spread out over three months to give you time for integration and practice between classes.

Each class will begin with a discussion about coaching—you can bring questions about client sessions or the tools you have been practicing. The remainder of the class will be coach-the-coach style, so you should be prepared to coach and be the client at least twice during the three-month period.

Each group of ten participants will break into two classrooms for coaching via Zoom to maximize the number of coaching opportunities.

After the group mentoring and individual sessions have been completed, a letter will be provided attesting to the number of mentoring hours you attended live to use for your ICF credential application.

The mentoring component is such a powerful tool for learning, which builds on and individualizes the learning done during the course.
