[featured_image]I experienced coach mentoring as I began to coach church planters and it helped me focus on developing my competency as a coach.
Now I’m involved in mentoring coaches and the growth I see in their competency as a coach is amazing.
Here are some of the comments I’ve received recently from those that I’ve been mentor coaching:
“Mentor coaching put my coaching wheels back on the track.”
“The availability of a mentor coach and a learning community to help me grow in my coaching ability was invaluable. I highly recommend [mentor coaching]…to anyone who is serious about significantly improving your coaching impact.”
I’ve seen the value of mentor coaching first hand. My mentor coach has helped me to develop greater confidence as I coach. Personally, the benefit of mentor coaching has exceeded my expectations.
