“Yes, I am now a MCC! Thank you very much for your support. I learned a lot from you.

My mentor coaching and supervision journey was not only learning and deepening the skills, but also, a magical self-awareness process!

I take deeper breaths and pause more now! Thank you very much.”

Ozlem Erten, MCC

“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!”

Yvonne O’Reilly, MCC

Yvonne's website (Luxembourg)

“I would not have passed the MCC exam (and on the first try) without Carly’s insights and feedback. She knows the intricacies of the evaluation system and how tiny adjustments can make a big difference both in passing the exam and for my clients. She showed me how to make these adjustments while still being “me” as a coach.

I enjoyed the combination of 1:1 time with Carly, and the group sessions; what a bonus to meet coaches from other countries and other coaching backgrounds.

I highly recommend Carly’s mentor coaching group program to anyone who wants to elevate their skills.”

Miriam Grogan, MCC

Miriam's website (USA)

“What a privilege it was to participate in Carly’s MCC Mentor Coaching Group. I knew I wanted to pursue my MCC, but I honestly wasn’t sure what it meant to coach at an MCC level. Through Carly’s informative teaching and feedback following each coaching session in my group, I learned what MCC Coaching was.

The most helpful aspect was my Individual Mentor Coaching sessions. There, Carly gave me invaluable feedback on my coaching recordings, and mentored me to the point I felt confident in submitting them to ICF.

I continue to use what I learned in Carly’s group as I coach those who are dying and those who are grieving, and as I teach others how to do the same.”

Don Eisenhauer, MCC

Don's website (USA)

“Carly mentored me in an unusual way. I do not speak English very well, so she listened to my coaching recordings in Russian, with an English transcript. Each time, she provided written core competency feedback to me, I incorporated into my coaching and then sent her another recording and transcript.

I received clear and direct feedback that moved me forward. I understood what I was doing well and what to improve. Carly was generous in sharing specific examples from her experience on how my coaching could be done differently; which questions would be more appropriate, and where there was a possibility to strengthen the session. I passed my MCC. If you want to become a master, choose Carly.”

Olga Rybina, MCC

Olga's website (Russia)

“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.”

Luciano Boccucci, MCC

Luciano's website (Italy)

“Carly, I have huge appreciation for the quality of the learning tools, class instruction and feedback that you provided through the mentor coaching process.

Passing the ICF MCC exam provides me with validation from the organization that is committed to the quality and ethics of the coaching profession. But the deeper reward is the satisfaction I get from connecting more fully with my clients. That is a gift. Thank you.”

Jane Maloney, MCC

Jane's website (USA)

“Carly’s supportive and direct style challenged me to rise to another level in my coaching. Her passion and effectiveness in articulating the coaching 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 written feedback and comments for submitted assignments.”

Dominic Scaffidi, MCC

Dominic's website (Canada)

“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.”

Viorel Apetrei, MCC

Viorel's website (Romania)

“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.”

Kirsten Dierolf, MCC

Kirsten's website (Germany)

“To get the MCC, I first took all the necessary education hours. What remained mainly was the two MCC level session recordings requirement. But how to get there?

I found Carly and was impressed from her being an MCC assessor and a teacher for new assessors as well. I took Carly’s 3 month The Mentor Coaching Group.

Carly systematically trained us using the PCC marker table in an MCC skill level grading from her experience. This gave a detailed “spectrum” of the areas of strength, and those which needed further development. This was very helpful to ensure a systematic growth in the session quality until, I was able to demonstrate full mastery.

I applied for MCC and voila – I passed the ICF MCC recording assessment with high grades!

Carly is friendly, encouraging and championing towards the goal. Acknowledging the strengths, yet consistently providing incisive instruction to advance skills where needed. She is generous in attention, and thorough in answering questions and clearing question marks and doubts.”

Ziv Soferman, MCC

“I would never have passed the MCC assessment without Carly’s supportive and challenging coaching! I worked with Carly and her Mentor Coaching Group for four months, and then continued individual mentor coaching with Carly for the next four months.

Not only did I pass the MCC, but more importantly, I am able to support my clients achieving deeper, transformational personal outcomes, in addition to becoming more adept at leading others.

Come prepared to work hard, learn a lot and push yourself out of your comfort zone – it will be well worth your time.”

Bonnie Wentworth, MCC

Bonnie's website (USA)

“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!”

Sam Patterson, MCC

Sam's website (Australia)

“When I first started considering the process of pursuing my MCC, I had no idea the effort it would require of me nor the growth I would experience as an individual and as a coach. I have never been inclined to give up easily, yet there were points in the process that I doubted my ability to succeed.

Yet from my first conversation with Carly, I knew that her approach to coaching and to the ICF application process would empower me to succeed. Each interaction with her was a quality one and she gently yet consistently challenged me in the areas I needed most.

I certainly could not have obtained my MCC credential without her magnificent program and gracious support. I have already referred other coaches to her program and will not hesitate to do so in the future.”

Brittany Macdonald, MCC

Brittany's website (USA)

“It was a personal challenge as well as a sign of personal achievement to become an MCC. I was not sure if I can find a mentor that I can connect with and have the mentorship suitable to my learning style. Carly was able to understand my needs from the first call and was capable to connect with me at a level that made my journey seamless.

Her professional and most importantly authentic style made my journey exciting and full of learning. I was motivated to challenge myself and push forwards. Her vast experience in coaching and her capacity to transform both her experience and understanding of the core competencies at MCC level, were vital to my achievement.”

Ihab Badawi, MCC

Ihab's website (Lebanon)

“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

Christine's website (USA)

“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

Kathleen's website (Canada)

“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

Steve's website (Dubai, UAE)

“Carly remains my mentor and my model; even now that my MCC certification is completed I feel so proud and honoured about this.

I was doubtful in preparing the MCC level in English, as this was not my mother tongue and I might be imprecise with language in sessions with my American speaking clients.

Being part of Carly’s Mentor Coaching Group gave me huge abundance of high level sessions recorded in English, examples of linguistic standards from people all over the world, and the careful attention of an attentive mentor and a skilful group of peers who enabled my fastest and most secure growth. Adding a lot of laughing on top of that.”

Laura Ravanetti, MCC

Laura's website (Italy)

“I received notice today that I earned (and when I say earned, I mean stretched and stretched and doubted and took deep downward dives and then called up courage and confidence and stretched beyond what I thought was possible) my MCC!

It was an incredible learning journey for me. Simply amazing and transformative. Carly’s group was what awakened me to the possibilities of earning this credential. The training we received in the MCG group (with Michael’s incredible 1:1 coaching that helped me work through a personal fear that was holding me back) was spot on for the mastery level goals we are  able to achieve.”

Patti M Thorn, PhD, MCC

Patti's website (USA)

“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.”

Steve Borek, MCC

Steve's website (Philippines/USA)

“As ICF, we have arrived to a huge richness and detail in contents of our competency model and when we teach all that in our coaching classes it may appear as too much information and points of attention to bear in mind and apply within the session.

With the new target approach model Carly succeeded in making this extensive complexity ordered and grounded in strong deep-seated motives, at the service of our value as Humans. This is a precious up to date model of our best achievements in research, knowledge and practice, made as simple as often the major skillful and experienced masters can do.”

Laura Ravanetti, MCC

Laura's website (Italy)

For years now, with Carly’s permission (and a payment I make per cohort). I’ve been providing all certified coach-training participants a link to Carly’s “The Target Approach” as a component of the pre-course work for my 65-hour ACSTH Program. This has provided participants with the opportunity to gain a strong foundation and understanding of the ICF Core Competencies prior to attending the 5-day fast-track program.

I’m looking forward to sharing The Upgraded Target Approach with coach-training participants. I love the new focus on partnering and the discussion around who versus what. Carly provides additional examples, insights and tips for each of the competencies, and brilliantly models the use of metaphors and analogies. Thank you for sharing this integrated and focused approach with the world.

Shana Ring, PCC

Shana's website (Canada)

“I remember my experience when I first got acquainted with your “Target Approach” competency model. For me, it was one of the strongest moments in my preparation for the MCC. A clear structure and logic is what I needed to create integrity in my understanding of the competencies. From that moment, my perception of competencies has changed a lot. From “it is a necessity and a requirement” to “it is freedom and wisdom.”

With “The Upgraded Target Approach,” again I liked the structure that makes it easier to understand the competencies. Our brain perceives the system better than the list. Besides, the systemic view gives an opportunity to see the interrelations and mutual influences of the competencies. This is especially important for those who are just stepping on the path of professional coaching.”

Olga Rybina, MCC

Olga's website (Russia)

“The Upgraded Target Approach is an invaluable resource for any coach who wants to up their coaching game. Carly provides a simple and yet powerful framework for the ICF core competencies and offers so much more beyond that. She weaves powerful tips throughout the recording of how to get the most out of your coaching.

Like all her other products, I’m sure to revisit this resource over a dozen times because I learn something new with every pass. This helps me by equipping me with the knowledge of “how” to be a better coach, which builds my confidence as a coach, as well as increases my impact on my clients. I can’t recommend this enough! Thank you Carly!”

Kim Grabovsky, PCC

Kim's website (USA)

“I’ve had “The Target Approach” in my library for many years and go back to visit the concepts and ideas when I need a refresher. Carly has the gift of taking complex concepts and presenting them in ways that make them understandable and usable.

Carly’s new version, “The Upgraded Target Approach” is a “must have” for anyone serious about embedding the ICF Core Competencies deep within their own mindset and coaching processes. Her presentation feels as if you are in a personal conversation with her.

You will greatly appreciate how she organizes the competencies through a visual target, and also how she includes a focus on the key concepts of “Partnering” and coaching the client’s “Who” and “What.” You will love spending this time with her!”

Vicky Dearing, PCC

Vicky's website (USA)

“This is the best condensed product and training I have found to master the ICF core competencies. The good news is that you can listen to it over and over again, at your own pace!

In creating “The Upgraded Target Approach,” Carly has taken the checklist format of the Updated ICF Core Competencies, and brought them to life, as they are actually intended to be used in a client coaching session. She leverages her many years as an ICF Assessor and Mentor Coach to provide practical examples at PCC and MCC level, providing context & clarity each step of the way.

If you wish to become a better coach, I strongly recommend that you consider this new product for your library and continued learning!”

Henry Dumas, PCC

Henry's website (USA)

“Having partnered with Carly as I prepared for my MCC in 2018-2019, I remember being so appreciative of her (original) Target Approach. It helped to organize and clarify the ICF core competencies in a way that allowed for better integration.

The Upgraded Target Approach is equally valuable and also incorporates the newly released ICF core competencies. It is such a clean and structured way to learn (and ultimately apply) the competencies.

In addition, having Carly as a mentor coach was an absolute blessing! She is such a gifted coach and mentor!”

Alissa DeWitt, MCC

Alissa's website (USA)

“I’ve used Carly’s “The Target Approach” since being introduced to it in 2015. Her model is easy to understand, makes sense in the sequence provided, and allows for integration of the core competencies. Now with “The Upgraded Target Approach,” I LOVE the depth of explanation and integration of the updated core competencies along with the plethora of examples provided -I’ve used this approach in coaching classes I teach as well as mentoring, to help clients understand what’s involved in a coaching conversation, and why.”

Ann Fogolin, MCC

Ann's website (Canada)

“The Upgraded Target Approach is a digestible approach to the ICF core competencies, that actually makes sense! Even as a PCC coach, and Coach Training Instructor, there were so many “aha” moments and juicy nuggets of insight that I took away. I will be using this training moving forward to help prepare our students for their final evaluation call.

Carly’s incredible depth of knowledge and deep love and respect for coaching as a profession is unparalleled. I cannot recommend her work enough to anyone seeking excellence in their craft as a coach.”

Taryn Watts, PCC

Taryn's website (Canada)

“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

Reciprocoach's website (Kerryn Griffiths, Founder and Global Coordinator)

“Before I selected a mentor group in preparation for my PCC, I interviewed several individuals, after which my mind and my gut said Carly’s the one for you. The ability to marry a rigorous approach with a compassionate delivery of feedback is not easily achieved, however Carly is a master of that. She offers straightforward reflections, that illuminate blind spots and strengths, and suggests possible strategies to build on both.

The impact of examining and refining my coaching skills in a challenging and positive environment has been evident to my clients. They have remarked how they are being pushed further through our coaching and are getting to their outcomes more quickly than they thought.”

Deirdre Danahar, PCC

Deirdre's website (USA)

“Participating in Carly’s mentoring program was one of the most impactful learning experiences of my career. The robust tool kit, hands-on practice and expert guidance that I received perfectly prepared me to apply for my PCC certification.

Due to Carly’s wonderful mentoring, I successfully passed all requirements and achieved PCC level. Thank you Carly.”

Eric Feuerlicht, PCC

Eric's website (USA)

I strongly recommend Carly for her mentoring services in preparing me for the PCC Certification.

Carly knows what she is doing and offers great support to those wanting to obtain any level of coaching certification.

Contact Carly if you want a structured, proven process that will support you in achieving your coaching certification.

Rachel Karu, PCC

Rachel's website (USA)

“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

Cristian's website (Romania)

“In preparation for applying for my PCC, I knew I wanted to become an even stronger coach. For a program I just happened to find by doing a Google search, The Mentor Coaching Group experience was so beyond my expectations. And the whole experience elevated my coaching, and how I approach a coaching session.

For what could have felt like a very vulnerable experience to have my coaching observed by a group of fellow coaches, it wasn’t. I felt supported while being stretched. I’m so grateful I invited you on my journey to my PCC, which I’m honored to say I now hold.”

Brigitta Theleman, PCC

Brigitta's website (USA)

“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!”

Doreen Teo, PCC

Doreen's website (Singapore)

“I found this to be a most worthwhile program in terms of learning, time, and money. The fact that both Carly and Karen are actual ICF assessors makes the experience truly reality-based and on point for those who want to succeed in the credentialing process.

The MCG methodology really improved my coaching skills by embracing the organic, fluid nature of excellent coaching.

I achieved my Coach U Certified Graduate status, using the skills I learned in the MCG along with the enthusiastic support of Karen who later assisted me individually. I’m deeply grateful – thank you!” And I now have my PCC confirmed.

Mary Miller, CUCG, PCC

Mary's website (USA)

“When I came to this mentor coaching group, I wanted to take my coaching to the next level. I knew I was missing something about my establishing the coaching agreement.

Now I am sure I have a proven way of helping the client get his or her best agenda for the session and the overall agreement. On top of that, I have a very clear plan of what I need to develop further about my other important coaching competencies, and a deep overall understanding of the coaching competencies.”

Ioan Nicut, PCC

Ioan's website (Romania)

“I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed The Mentor Coaching Group and the insights, wisdom and coaching you both provided during my participation.

While I’m not perfect (and likely will never be) I feel I push myself to always be improving, to always be coaching at the PCC level (not just the ACC level) and using the tips, techniques and education you provided through the process.

I am the happiest I’ve ever been in my career and anxious to not only continue to learn and grow, but to work with as many leaders as I can to be there with them as they learn and grow.”

Karen Konrath, ACC

Karen's website (USA)

“Carly demonstrates extraordinary mastery as a Mentor Coach. She displays exceptional patience, provides thorough answers to course questions, and eagerly shares skills and published articles with her Mentor students.

She has a deep commitment towards the delivery of ICF Competencies and has exceeded my expectations as a Mentor Coach.”

John Mooney, ACC

John's website (USA)

“I did it! I am now a certified coach. Thank you so much for all of the love and support on this incredible journey!

You have supported me to open my mind to new learning and perception. I have stretched out of my comfort zone and became comfortable with being uncomfortable. I am truly empowered!”

Leena Khuffash, ACC

Leena's website (Qatar)

“Carly is an authentic, purposeful and passionate leader in the field of coaching.

As an esteemed and highly valued contributor to our Excelerate-Coach Mentoring program, Carly shares generously from her own journey and evolution to coaching mastery as well as provides high impact and potent feedback. Carly has a relentless commitment to the professionalism of coaching and an unyielding respect for our humanness and uniqueness.

Her rare ability to meld hard edged business results with the free flowing exploration of a person’s unique journey makes Carly a highly valuable coach mentor and true ambassador to the field of coaching.”

Michelle Duval

Michelle's website (Australia)

“I’ve seen Carly coach and present on the ICF Core Competencies, and her integration and expression of their principles is second to none. She has an ability to distill the essence of the competencies into something that is easily understood and readily applied, having refined her mastery of them over years of coaching, mentoring and most especially, being an assessor for ICF.

There is no one else out there that I’ve experienced in my 25+ years of coaching that I would give a stronger referral to. (I’m an ICF MCC for 20+ years and former coaching instructor for 4 different coach training organizations, a current ICF assessor again myself).”

Michael Stratford, MCC

Michael's website (USA)

“I obtained far more than I ever expected or knew was possible. I set out to be able to respond better to clients where they were and also improve my ability to hear what they were telling me.

What I received was a complete transformation of my coaching ability (and my life), which moved from my head to my heart. It was profound. I was a caterpillar and now I’m a butterfly. I’m a completely different coach with a completely different way of being in my life and with my clients.

My clients are making huge shifts and benefiting greatly. I did not anticipate such a profound change but I am so happy and grateful it happened.”
