Masterful Coaching Course – MCC Coaching Education

Masterful Coaching Course – MCC Coaching Education

The Masterful Coaching Course is a Level 3 Coaching Education accreditation by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). This is an advanced coaching course for PCC- credentialed coaches who wish to develop the art and skill of a masterful coach.

The five-month program is a practicum that includes in-depth instruction and exploration of various advanced coaching topics, including: partnership and performance, coaching presence, vulnerability, assumptions, bias, confidence, and more. Participants will observe MCC coaches in action, and they will use these coaching demonstrations to label masterful coaching distinctions. Experienced coaches will expand their perspectives and deepen their understanding of their approach to coaching with many opportunities to practice, receive feedback, and meet one-on-one with an MCC Mentor Coach.

Graduates from this course will have met the ICF Coaching Education requirements needed to apply for the Master Certified Coach (MCC) Credential using the MCC Application Path. All applicants must meet the ICF hours requirements and submit two recordings with their MCC application.

Masterful Coaching Course Learning Philosophy

The path to MCC-level coaching requires an introspective look at ourselves and how we authentically show up to be fully present and partner with our clients. In this powerful adult learning environment, we will leverage the wisdom of our peers and what we bring to the group for increased learning and awareness. We have discovered that through real-time conversations between experienced coaches with diverse backgrounds, we all accelerate our growth.
