CCMC Free Mentor Coaching

FREE Mentor Coaching with January CCMC Classes!


Have you worked with a mentor coach? There are a number of benefits:

  • Safety: a safe place to make mistakes (it’s what we all do when we’re learning!)
  • Feedback: receive confidential feedback on what you’re doing right & what you could do differently
  • Awareness: an experienced mentor coach can help uncover blind spots in your coaching style
  • Momentum: there is NO faster way to grow in your coaching than through hands-on practice
  • Ideas & Insights: ask questions about current/prospective client situations you’re experiencing as a coach
  • Networking: a special, deeper relationship is cemented between your mentor coach and you
  • Stretch: grow in your ability to coach ‘stuck’ clients and different client types through challenging role plays
  • Confidence: clients will hire you for your competence AND your confidence … get it with mentor coaching!


Mentor coaching is a REQUIREMENT to obtain an ICF (Int’l Coach Federation) coaching credential, as well as to complete certification in The Academies’ Certified Career Management Coach program. And yet, working with a mentor coach can be an investment.

I so enjoyed the entire experience, and have really improved my coaching expertise and support for my clients here at the Fed. The support of your staff also made this truly great for me as well! 🙂 Kim Avery as our Instructor and Mentor Coach, was truly the spark of professional encouragement that I counted on to gain my coaching credential through Career Coach Academy – she was great!

I once told a prospective career coach, “If you want to be the best, work with the best.”  I took my own advice and for fifteen wonderful weeks worked with Susan Whitcomb whom I consider to be the best career coach and coaching mentor in the field today.  Susan gave me the tools to look within myself and recognize that the experiences which have shaped my life can be focused to help others find truly fulfilling lives and careers.  I now have the skills and confidence to fulfill my life’s calling as a nationally certified professional career coach.  If you are considering entering into the rewarding field of career coaching, then I highly recommend you consider Susan as a mentor.  After all, if you want to be the best, work with the best!  Thanks!

I want to thank you so much for the insights, expertise, and mentoring you have provided over the last several months and concluding with the oral exam last week. I will miss our weekly meetings! You are such a tremendous role model for women – thanks for treading the pathway to success so that others like myself can follow! Not to mention that you do it with kindness and servitude …

Thank you for all the hard work that Kim Avery, CCMC trainer, and [Susan] as my mentor coach put into me. Thank you for “knighting” me a CCMC!

Interesting story – beyond coaching my MBA students, I was also able to use the skills I gained through my career coaching training for the benefit of our MBA admissions team. Frequently, I hold informational interviews with prospective students who want to know if they can get a high-paying job with [an] MBA. Before my Career Coach Academy training, I would launch into a half-hour monologue on the professional profile and motivations of a successful MBA graduate. I would ask the prospect if this was the information for which he/she was looking (nobody ever said “no”), and we would end with polite “good lucks.”

Last month, I engaged a prospect in a mini-coaching session rather than launching into speech. Through powerful questioning, active listening, and the prioritization techniques you taught me, I was able to coach the prospect to take ownership in evaluating the feasibility of pursuing an MBA. When I got to the action and “red-bow” phases, he animatedly gave me a list of action items and other contacts he needed to informational interview in order to make a go/no-go decision. I don’t know yet whether he will join our program or not (I am confident he will make the right choice), but I have never had a meeting in which the prospect demonstrated such a level of self-understanding at that moment — and I attribute that to you.
