Who should take part in this mentoring program?
Those at all stages on the road to mastery find value in this program. Whether you are just starting out as a newly-minted team coach or are a master ready to use your considerable skills to innovate new techniques, you are welcome to join this group of peer coaches.
At what stage of the learning journey do you find yourself?
Stage 1 | Novice
This learner, newly trained and eager to get started, needs to develop confidence and learn the basic process.
As a Novice, you have skills, tools, and some practice, but aren’t sure where or how to begin reaching out to clients, step into systems coaching, develop contracts and proposals, or design the process.
As your mentors, we are able to guide you step-by-step through the entire coaching framework, enriching the knowledge base you’ve already acquired.
Stage 2 | Apprentice
This learner, trained and competent with initial client experiences and a desire to improve, needs specific tips and the emotional support and guidance necessary to grow.
As an Apprentice, you have the basic knowledge down pat but are starting to realize your personal limitations and see where you need to improve. Your commitment has helped you to progress into the Apprentice stage, as you become “consciously incompetent.”
As your mentors, we are able to recognize the frustration so common to this stage, as you wonder if you will ever get it. Directing learning, flexible training plans, and one-on-ones are key. We share tips, tricks and success stories to assist with your learning, along with the encouragement and emotional support that will help you to grow.
Stage 3 | Journeyer
This learner, although trained, experienced and capable, is not yet in the flow and needs to access knowledge, experience and resources to support nuanced and unique situations.
As a Journeyer, your real work begins. In this stage, practice most definitely makes perfect, as you encounter the physical and mental struggle involved in mastery. Since profound concentration and focus can leave you feeling mentally and physically drained, this time of great practice also requires great patience. You are making progress, and beginning to see the fruits of your labour, although you’ll have good days and bad days, failures and successes.
As your mentors, we understand the exhaustion that can come along with this stage of learning, and make sure practice schedules are varied and our learning sessions retain the element of fun.
Stage 4 | Master
This learner is a highly developed coach working with a variety of systems, who wishes to innovate in community for unique and challenging systems work.
At the Mastery stage, you are polishing your skillset, having already achieved the ultimate goal of becoming “unconsciously competent.” The skill comes so naturally, it seems like inborn genius, automatic and effortless. Your purpose in joining us is to add subtle nuance. Perhaps you’d like to move from one area of expertise to another, as with moving from the corporate to the not-for-profit world. Or you may be ready to innovate new strategies and techniques, and want to do so in community.
As your mentors, we are here to play with concepts and techniques, adding additional dimension in a supportive peer-based environment.
