Welcome to Mentor Coaching 

Mentor Coaching for an ICF Credential consists of coaching and feedback in a collaborative, appreciative and dialogued process based on an observed or recorded coaching session to increase the coach’s capability in coaching in alignment with the ICF Core Competencies.

Purpose

Mentoring provides professional assistance in achieving and demonstrating the levels of coaching competency and capability demanded by the desired credential level.
Mentor Coaching should take place over an extended time (three-month minimum) in a cycle that allows for listening and feedback from the Mentor Coach while also allowing reflection and practice on the part of the individual being mentored.

Mentoring

I had such a wonderful mentorship experience with Heidi. She radiates an energy that is full of light and it is contagious! She expresses a genuine curiosity about your experience as you walk through the process together. As if I were a client, I felt like she was a partner who guided me to new self-awareness, encouraged me to remain authentic in my coaching style and acknowledged my skill progression. Her feedback, both in-session and written, was extremely thorough and supported my learning to go to the next level. I would definitely recommend her services as a mentor coach…FIVE STARS!

Mentoring

I am working on certification for Christian Leadership Life Coaching. In the beginning of my course I struggled with imposter syndrome because I am pivoting from another business. I lacked confidence because I believed I was starting from “scratch”. In working with Heidi I discovered that I have natural gifts and abilities to serve my clients. Heidi is patient, kind, intelligent, professional, and insightful coach. Wise council. She is an inspiration. Biggest thing I have learned from her is what coaching mindset, how to structure my session and what my role is as a coach. Putting her teaching into practice has made a positive difference in my clients outcome. I know that after working with Heidi I am owning the title of a coach, have confidence, authority, respect and honour for this work.

Mentoring

Heidi Fishbein is the best! As an instructor, she is patient, kind, and easy to work with and as a mentor, Heidi can’t be beat! As I progressed through my coursework with Heidi, I gained new insights about myself and the people around me. Heidi gently guided our cohort through a sometimes difficult process of growth. Heidi’s positive approach, energy and acceptance all make her a magnetic person who draws you in and pulls you out of yourself. As a mentor, Heidi is patient and kind and was able to help me see beyond my insecurities and imperfections and see the big picture in a new light. I would highly recommend Heidi to anyone who might have the blessing of working with her.

Mentoring

Before working with Heidi I struggled with identifying areas I needed to improve on in my coaching but also, I wasn’t capable of seeing how I was holding myself back based on my belief systems about myself and my business. In working with Heidi I discovered that I can give myself permission to wear many hats – as a coach or consultant; either way it’s a benefit versus a curse. I can offer many services to my clients once I am transparent. I also not believe I am worthy of this calling on my life. After working with Heidi I am realizing that I have everything I need inside of me to launch my business and step out in faith!

Mentoring

I have had the pleasure of working closely with Heidi as a mentor coach through the iACT program and I have found her to be INSPIRATIONAL, INTUITIVE and INSIGHTFUL. She is extremely professional and proficient as a mentor coach and knows her stuff! She can draw out her clients in unexpected ways that are sometimes surprising. She is kind and thoughtful and keeps things on task – in an appropriately “coachy” way. She also comes up with great questions which really made me think. I highly recommend her as a mentor, coach and human being.
