Coaching and Mentoring for Coaches



I love working with clients who are “going for the gold.” My clients are achieving greater personal and professional fulfillment as well as making extraordinary contributions in the world.

As your coach, I am your partner and champion, supporting you to take your life and your coaching career to the next level. Through coach mentoring, you will accelerate your learning and coaching skills development, as well as your confidence and credibility.

Dear Fran, I just had the opportunity to watch your Essence of Mastery session on Establishing the Coaching Agreement and once again loved it. It felt like a refresher for me from the wonderful mentoring I had from your online program. As I listened once more to the areas you cover at this stage from topic to motivation to outcome and more, it reminded me how much I have learned from you and how your guidance really helped me in gaining my MCC.

You continue to stand out for me as the best MCC coach I have had the privilege of listening to. I feel so aligned to your approach – creating a sacred space for the client to do their best work to become the best version of themselves. For the client to come into their own resourcefulness and formulate their own learning.  You are so authentic, and I experience you as a deeply spiritual human being with so many gifts of love, grace and appreciation.”  – Jane Adshead-Grant, MCC
