Work with an Expert Mentor Coach

Mentor coaching is indispensable for personal and professional growth as a coach. It is perhaps the most impactful way to enhance your skills and gain confidence in your coaching. There’s a good reason ICF requires mentor coaching for each level of certification and for all ACC renewals. ICF also allows certified coaches to count up to 10 hours of mentor coaching and another 10 hours of supervision toward Core Competency Continuing Education (CCE) requirements. We are committed to supporting the development of all coaches!

We offer two ways to receive Mentor Coaching through Coach Academy. You can 1) choose to participate in one of our new Mentoring Master Classes or 2) work with Mina one-on-one to focus your learning on specific personal coaching challenges and learning objectives.

Your mentor coach, Mina Brown, the Founder and President of Coach Academy, is a Master Certified Coach (MCC) and has been a successful entrepreneur for over 23 years. With her deep personal commitment to the development and advancement of other coaches, Mina can help you hone your coaching skills and advance your professional and business goals with clear focus and commitment. She designed all of Coach Academy’s several ICF-Approved programs and is the primary instructor. Students love her depth of understanding about coaching, her sense of humor, her deep business experience, and her caring attention to what students and coachees need. Her full bio is available on the Faculty page.

Mina's Mentoring Master Class

Students, graduates, and mentees frequently ask me a wide range of questions about the challenges they face in their coaching practice. It turns out that a large number of these issues are in fact shared across the spectrum. I feel like we only scratch the surface and would love to offer more ideas and support stemming from decades of experience and lots of learning from my mistakes.

So I decided to pilot a series of “master classes” where we can talk about these topics in small intimate groups. This is a wonderful opportunity to bring your issues to the group, and we will work together to explore solutions.

We will meet for one hour on the 3rd Friday of every month, from 2:30 – 3:30 pm Central Time, starting on August 21st.  Each group will have a maximum of 10 participants so you can count your mentor coaching hours toward ICF certification, re-certification, or core competency CCEUs. It’s particularly valuable for coaches renewing their ACC credential since the ICF requires 10 hours of mentor coaching for recertification. All meetings will be on Zoom and will be recorded to share if you have to miss one or if you want to revisit the session at a later date.

The Master Classes are available in 6-month ($597) and 12-month packages ($1,097), paid in advance. With the 6-month program, you also receive one free individual session with Mina. For the 12-month program, it’s two free private sessions.

I can’t wait to get started!

Individual Mentor Coaching

Some professional coaches prefer the individual approach and personal attention that comes with private, one-on-one sessions directly with Mina. One client recently shared, “I just wanted to let you know, shortly after our session, I had two of the best coaching sessions ever.” Individual sessions are generally conducted by phone, although video conferencing is also available. Read more about Mina’s background and experience on her Faculty Page. Plus, feel free to schedule an exploratory session at your convenience on her Virtual Calendar.

Please come PREPARED for your session. Here are some questions to consider in your preparation:

  • What areas in your role as a coach do you need to improve?
  • Where do you yourself struggling when you are coaching a client?
  • What area or topic has a client shared where you are uncertain how to proceed?
  • What coaching competency have you not paid enough attention to?
  • How might role playing a particular area or process in which you don’t feel confident benefit you when working with your clients?
  • What is your biggest challenge in your coaching with your clients

You can schedule your individual mentor coaching one at a time or in blocks of 5 or 10 hours. The fee for Mina’s individual coaching is $300 per hour*, 5 sessions for $1,250, or a block of 10 hours for $2,000. The 5-block package has to be completed in one year from the first session. The 10-session package must be completed in 18 months. Fees are payable in advance. Any sessions cancelled with less than 24-hour notice or just missed completely are forfeited unless we work something else out. I always try to be very reasonable. Should you have to cancel for some reason after we have started the program, a prorated refund can be issued, minus a 5% admin fee. Alternatively, any unused mentor sessions can be transferred to someone else.

* Special pricing is available for Coach Academy Graduates.
