Hi, I’m Fran Fisher, Master Certified Coach. Welcome to My Portable Mentor!
Join me on this exciting and deeply enriching journey of learning more about the coaching profession and the ways that we can support our clients in their own growth. We can model the transformational process for our clients. I’ll help you strengthen your professional and personal competencies to reach your goals and build your skills to empower clients in achieving theirs!
I will be your coaching guide, mentor, and program facilitator as we work together through My Portable Mentor. I’ll share with you what I’ve learnd about coaching from my 30 years of coaching, training coaches, mentoring coaches, providing supervision, and assessing ICF exams at the PCC and MCC levels. More than anything, I hope that you find your own transformation zone expanding and encompassing more than you ever thought possible!
I am sharing my highest and best practices that are proven to be transformational for your clients.
MPM is an affordable professional investment AND the self-paced modules allow you to complete the learning on your time schedule. Additionally, this investment keeps on giving because you have a “life time” access to these materials when you purchase them — even when they have been revised and updated, which they will be to remain current and most useful to my clients.
Internet access to My Portable Mentor’s downloadable MP3 audio files, Resource Manual, Transcript Journal for note-taking, and a 14 additional resource documents and forms in Word and PDF formats. Your purchase is an investment that keeps on giving, providing you with “lifetime” access to these resources.
Follow along the lessons in the Resource Manual with 17 streaming audios narrated by Fran that focus on and explain how the ICF Core Competencies can be demonstrated. You can download these MP3 audio files individually and play them back on your favorite mobile listening device.
Your My Portable Mentor Resource Manual includes coaching quotes, Fran’s Coaching Bumper Stickers, the 2020 version of ICF Standards of Ethical Conduct, the Original ICF Core Competencies, and the 2020 version of ICF Core Competencies with comparison.
Follow along with the full transcript of the 17 audio modules using the Transcript Journal provided for your own notes that reinforce your learning.
These documents and forms (in MS Word and PDF formats) can be rebranded with your professional logo for use with your own clients.
The investment you’re making with the purchase of My Portable Mentor allows you to review the audios and materials as often as you wish to deepen the learning, refresh your perspective when needed, and support your personal and professional growth as a coach.
The opportunity to cultivate greater understanding of the ICF Core Competencies will help build your confidence when it comes time to apply for the next level credentials. The repetition and the continued growth exponentially expands your skills and your own personal growth.
Your own personal and professional self-empowerment is ignited through the MPM modules and sets the stage for your learning breakthrough. You will show up more powerfully with your clients and for yourself as someone who lives from their essence and through their values.
My Portable Mentor is the booster shot I was looking for in my full life to keep my coaching skills sharp. Fran’s explanations are clear and concise. The examples bring the explanations home and give me an even clearer picture of the competencies. I am excited to have Fran’s wisdom in my back pocket whenever I am in need of a refresher!

Fran’s definition of coaching: “Coaching is the space of unconditional love, where learning, growth, and transformation naturally occur.”
Who are we called to be as coaches?
What brings you fulfillment?
Learning to feed your soul versus feed your ego.
Fran’s three stories:
(1) My personal path to coaching
(2) A little known fact about how the International Coach Federation was born
(3) The origin of my definition of coaching.

Fran’s mentoring program really advanced my skills and self-confidence and has catapulted my coaching practice into another dimension! Fran showed me targeted yet simple remedies to use when needed, which has made me a much stronger PCC coach. I’m now honing my skills using the MCC distinctions and am going for the hours needed to get my MCC. Fran’s mentoring program was a great investment in myself and my coaching capabilities! I highly recommend it!!

The simple answer is “yes, and….” The MPM audio series offers learning that is useful no matter where you are in your coaching profession journey. Think of these recordings as your check-in with a mentor, which is beneficial any time before, during, or even after you have completed WWCM. In the MPM program, I share foundational perspectives on the ICF Core Competencies that I have acquired during my 25-year coaching career. WWCM takes a deeper dive into skill development.
ICF CCEUs are awarded for live, synchronous training courses only. MPM is a virtual, asynchronous training course comprised of pre-recorded modules and additional downloadable resource materials delivered as a self-paced learning program. Again, the 5 RD credits for completing MPM may be applied toward any ICF credential renewal.
The ICF Core Competencies and PCC Markers are not basically changing. They are being updated to current practices, the format is changing, and the language is being updated in some instances. For example, the wording for the PCC marker “Creating Awareness” is changing to “Evoking Awareness.”
I will continue to update the MPM program audios and resource materials to stay current with any ICF changes to the Core Competencies, PCC Markers, or MCC Skills Requirements. By purchasing this program, you acquire full, ongoing access to the MPM Program website and the MPM resources. You can revisit the site at any time and download the most current versions of the MPM audios and materials.
When you have completed listening to all of the audio recordings, send me an email letting me know that you’ve completed the program and requesting your RD certification. I will email you the certificate of completion for the My Portable Mentor (5 RDs) which you may use toward any ICF credential renewal. My email is email@example.com.
Thank you for asking! By enrolling in this program, your contact information will be added to my mailing list. You will receive email notifications of my future events, programs, books, and products. Please add my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to your email Safe Sender list.
I had lots of doubts about my coaching skills and ability to develop what was needed to attain the MCC level. Fran’s guidance and genuine intention helped me make the successful journey to become a Master Certified Coach.

Fran’s coach mentoring program has elevated the quality of my coaching and mentor coaching. One of the many competencies I grew in was my ability to hold structure and sacred space for my clients in a more rigorous, powerful way. As a result, my clients consistently get greater value out of our sessions, and I can see the positive impact of my coaching growing. My investment in Fran’s program paid for itself and continues to pay dividends.
