“Thank you Carly for believing in me, and empowering me to believe in myself. Your presence and your brilliant MCC Group and Individual Mentor Coaching program are truly a gift. As a result, not only have I gained practical strategies to sharpen my coaching skills to a master level, I’ve also evolved as a whole person and continue to embody a coaching mindset and presence in all aspects of my life. Thank you Carly for helping me become a better coach to better support the lives around me.”

“After over 10 successful years in coaching I am experiencing a joy and depth in my sessions with my clients that I have never known before. What you are teaching us is bit by bit transforming my coaching in a way that I never thought was possible. Not in a way where everything that I have known before was not useful, but I am now learning to apply it to coaching in a much more skillful manner. A real “integration” of sorts.
Every day – after hours of coaching my clients – I sit here amazed and grateful. And my clients write to me about the deep impact our conversations have had on them. So, Carly: a bow of gratitude! Still loads to learn for me – learning never ends – but I can definitely see my coaching changing thanks to your programme.”

“Carly organized my MCC journey efficiently by combining learning modules that deepened my awareness and provided me with practical “tricks of the trade” I could apply immediately. Carly’s style was straightforward and to-the-point when I was off-track, and kind and supportive when I felt discouraged. If you want to learn from the best and are ready to establish “human-to-human” relationships with your clients, Carly is your mentor.”

“What a pleasure to have had Carly as a mentor to achieve my PCC credential! She brings her vast experience in coaching and her knowledge of assessing ICF exams. She is compassionate, supportive and thorough in her feedback. She offers a structured and proven process. I highly recommend Carly’s Mentor Coaching Programme.”

“I have chosen Carly as a mentor in my journey from the PCC to the MCC and it was for me one of the best choices in my professional life!
Carly is at service of the development of quality and ethics in professional coaching. The mentoring program she developed is based on her long experience as a Master Coach as well as on her unique talents and characteristics: her respect of the human being, her care and attention to the details and her commitment to elicit the best out of her clients.
Thank you Carly! With you I embraced a new more profound way of looking at the coaching competencies and at my profession, I enjoyed this part of my evolutionary journey and I managed to get my MCC with ease.”

“Thank you Carly for your incredible mentorship and passion in holding us to the highest standards on behalf of our clients and the coaching profession.
Your MCC programme is top notch. The individual and group sessions are brimful of expert guidance as well as insightful and specific feedback to grow coaching capabilities on the path to MCC. I came away with a treasure trove of insights and resources to revisit frequently to keep me on my toes as an MCC!
By joining your mentoring programme Carly, I fell more in love with coaching than ever before. Coaching is for life. And so is the learning!”

“When I decided to enroll in this program to prepare for my MCC credential application, I was looking for high quality supervision and international experiences, both from the participants and the Mentor Coach. And this is what I got!
I am very satisfied with the quality of the content, the organization of the program itself, and the resources I had access to.
The guidance from Carly, with the contribution of the participants, has been a phenomenal resource to advance me in my coaching journey.”

“Carly’s supportive and direct style challenged me to rise to another level in my coaching. I love how the coaching competencies are in her DNA. Her passion and effectiveness in articulating the competencies provided tremendous clarity, even after 10+ years of coaching.
The library of recorded PCC and MCC coaching sessions offered some of the greatest learning and clear distinction between the levels.
The mentoring also went beyond my expectations with the extent of Carly’s specific personalized written feedback and comments for submitted assignments.”

“This is one of the best coaching programs for advancing in the big leagues of coaches. Carly is a mix of operational guru, and source of “Being” inspiration.
Many resources available, personal communication, without formal patterns and cliches. The quality of interaction and guidance was extraordinary.”

“Carly mentored me when I was preparing for my MCC and I can highly recommend her as a mentor coach to anyone wishing to gain a credential.
She is highly professional, very knowledgeable about ICF credentialing, plus incredibly patient, funny, and wise. She has a wealth of resources (recordings, presentations, other material) available that was also very helpful.
Carly supported me as a learner, as a coach and as a person through the whole process.”

“Massive thanks to you Carly for your guidance, insight and support. I put in a heap of energy working toward my MCC and working with you meant my energy was channeled into the right areas.
You’ve set up the mentoring program in a way that we can immerse ourselves in coaching – learning through practice, listening, discussing and assessing. It’s challenging and uncomfortable at times, but it’s also fun and really satisfying.
Every step has been purposeful and thorough and now, having my MCC, there is an even greater sense of progress attached. Thank you!”

“I was a good coach who needed to grow into a “master” to pass my MCC call reviews. The two things (of many) I will highlight is Carly’s methodology and her presence.
Her methodology breaks down the competencies in a fantastically understandable way. And bringing forth the being of a master coach, I cannot more highly acknowledge Carly’s being. She is passionate about the art and science of master-level coaching, and her presence with you and where you are in the process is supportive, rigorous, and compassionate. With Carly’s support, I passed my MCC evaluations!”
Christine Sachs, MCC

“What a gift! Carly created a safe, supportive environment for group learning, with clear feedback that amplified strengths and offered specific ways each participant could grow. The distinctions you consistently highlight in practice, to shine the light on the “Who” versus the “What” components, were quite impactful.
My purpose in choosing this program was to deepen my capacity as coach, in preparation for MCC level accreditation. I’m now achieving my goals, with much greater clarity and confidence.”
Kathleen Tribe, MCC

“Carly’s program helped me to earn my MCC credential (on my first attempt). I realized I hadn’t had any training to move from PCC to MCC skill level. I learned that masterful coaching and passing the MCC exam were intimately related, yet quite different. Carly’s program served my understanding of both.
I selected Carly as my MCC mentor coach for a number of reasons, including because she came from a different coach training background, so she would help me connect with a coaching view, not just a school approach. She has vast experience in assessing ICF exams. She understands the complexities of coaching internationally, having coached and mentored across the globe. I highly recommended this program, and Carly.”
Steve Jeffs, MCC

“I’ve been a fan of Carly’s blog posts for many years, regarding her insights on the ICF Core Competencies. I thought, if I’m receiving ginormous value from her free content, what value would I receive from her paid program? I knew Carly was the coach to uplevel my skills to achieve MCC.
There’s so much value in The Mentor Coaching Group. The twice-monthly web calls with peers, 1-1 coaching with Carly, and recorded coaching sessions demonstrating mastery in action.
I was recently awarded the MCC certification. Carly, I’m forever thankful for your insights, generosity, and how you modeled the way for me.”

“We have been making the most of Carly’s Target Approach since 2016, integrating it with our Reciprocal Peer Coaching Program to give coaches specific practice in maintaining presence whilst integrating all of the competencies into a 20-60 minute coaching session.
The Upgraded Target Approach is now more timely that ever, providing a concise summary of the upgraded ICF Core Competencies and what the changes mean in practice.”
Reciprocoach's website (Kerryn Griffiths, Founder and Global Coordinator)
“Before starting The Mentor Coaching Group with Carly, I had a bit list of WHAT to clarify from the program. During the whole period, I discovered a lot about myself and the coaching practice.
Carly’s way of being supportive and totally present bring loads of trust in myself and my coaching practice. I had at my disposal to use a diversity of high quality resources, which brought me fine new nuances and perspectives about ICF competencies, and new practical ways to apply them.
I personally and professionally grew. I enriched myself with multiple perspectives. And I got the clarity that I need regarding the coaching frame. Because paradoxically, even though there are 70 items comprised in the ICF competencies, I finally got the confirmation that coaching is much more about freedom of expression through dialogue, than it is about one way of being in a coaching frame.
And for ALL that, Carly, I respectfully THANK YOU!”
Cristian Nicolae, PCC

“Carly, FINALLY….I received news that I got my PCC certification! What a great learning experience – I have now a better understanding and appreciation of the ICF competencies and their application.
Thank you very much for partnering with me in this whole credentialing process; I am so glad I found you!
Without your support, I doubt I can succeed in my first try! Thank you!”
