Our group/individual mentoring program has been awarded 24 hours of Core Competency CCE units that can be used toward 10 hours of mentor coaching, and/or toward the 40 CCE requirement to renew your ICF credential!

Are you looking to apply for your first ICF credential, renew your existing credential, or seeking your next level of credential?

Start your mentoring now to avoid stress and missed deadlines. It can take 3-5 months to complete mentor coaching requirements! 


We have an ever-growing library of recorded coaching sessions for you to listen to coaching at MCC, PCC and ACC skill level! So many coaches never have the opportunity to listen to coaching and evaluate it, gaining valuable distinctions that grow their confidence as a coach. And that’s just ONE reason to join us!

Our group sessions are by web-conferencing so we can see each other and create connection, and closer community.


Viorel Apetrei“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 (Romania) Viorel’s website

Darcy Luoma“As an MCC coach, I chose very carefully where I wanted to continue to learn and grow as a coach. I chose Carly and Karen because I was so impressed with their knowledge, dedication and quality of their mentoring group.

And I wasn’t disappointed! Through the rigorous, supportive and structured program they have created, I increased my coaching skills greatly and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to become a better coach!”

Darcy Luoma, MCC, (USA) Darcy’s website

Kathleen Tribe“What a gift! Carly and Karen both 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, Leadership and Team Coach, Resolve 360 Inc. (Canada) Kathleen’s website

Ioan Nicut small“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, Coach de Integritate, Autor, Povestitor (Romania) Ioan’s website

Kristin Tague“I went in to this experience knowing I would gain valuable insight on my coaching – that is what I expected. But, my experience with both Carly and Karen as well as my classmates throughout the sessions had an even more profound impact on my coaching abilities than I had imagined.

For that incredible feedback that sparked my self awareness and helped me grow as a coach, I am extremely grateful. Both Carly and Karen epitomize and seemingly effortlessly model great coaching, and they inspired me – a truly wonderful gift they share with the participants!”

Kristin Tague, ACC, Director – Talent & Organization Development, Principal Financial Group (USA) Website
