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.

There are 9 Audios exploring the ICF Core Competencies plus Additional Resources
My greatest pleasure is mentoring coaches who are passionate about continuous learning and growth as a human being and for greater mastery as a coach. In this module I am setting the stage for the course by sharing my personal philosophy for coaching and how it has shaped my coaching career and my brand.
You will learn how to:
Audio 2 – Establishing the Coaching Agreement
In this module we will explore the benefits of establishing a coaching agreement for you and for the client. We will take a deep dive, with specific examples, into the ICF PCC Markers for this competency. You will learn how to take the client deeper sooner by facilitating the WHO route into their personal discovery process versus the WHAT route. I also provide tips about how to demonstrate establishing the coaching agreement at the MCC level.
In this module you will expand your awareness of the many direct and indirect ways you can create and sustain a highly respectful, safe, and supportive environment for your client’s process.
This, as you know, is a key competency! It’s all about who you are being. In this module you will learn what your mentor or an ICF assessor are looking for regarding these key terms and the skills they represent: “whole person,” “observant, empathetic, and responsive,” “curiosity,” “energy shifts,” etc.
The impacts of our presence and our coaching skills are largely influenced by our listening skills. In this module you will take away tips for listening to the client at a deeper level that goes beyond what the client is actually saying.
This module is about how to ask clear, empowering questions that help clients explore their underlying issues, behaviors, and ways of being so they can find new ways of thinking and feeling that help them focus and moves them forward toward their desired outcome.
Greater mastery in this competency is using language that has the greatest positive impact on the client. You will learn how to make relevant contributions to the client’s learning and forward movement through your stated observations.
The key theme in this competency is client learning. You will raise your own awareness of the many ways you can easily help the client raise their self-awareness, self-discovery, and learning process.
Mastering this competency will give you the “power tools” to help anchor the session with the client and build in success factors for their forward movement. You will be provided with many specific examples that you can use in each of the PCC Markers in this competency.

Frequently Asked Questions
As you will learn in the WWCM program, coaching skills for the MCC level require a qualitative mind-set shift from transactional to transformational conversations. Coaches on this learning path transform who they are being in the process and gain greater personal as well as professional mastery. The certificate on the wall becomes secondary as a motivation.
Prospective clients tell me they want to work with someone at the top of their field with a depth of experience and credibility, and for this, they are willing to pay more.
WWCM focuses on the ICF PCC Markers and the MCC Qualitative Essentials needed to demonstrate the skills and competencies required for the PCC and MCC designations. Distinctions between PCC and MCC expertise are emphasized for clarity.
WWCM offers advanced learning that builds on the foundational concepts provided in My Portable Mentor (MPM).
MPM addresses the ICF Core Competencies in more general terms as an aid to achieve the ACC, PCC, and MCC designations.
The WWCM program provides an opportunity to learn different perspectives that can expand and deepen your coaching skills and techniques. The recorded demonstrations present actual sessions with a seasoned MCC who mentors other coaches. You benefit from the elevated conversations and experiences that serve to augment your learning, training, and practicing.
The segments focused on the PCC Markers will also provide you with additional support for sustaining your awareness of the key foundational skills you need to maintain while you learn and practice the qualitative elements of the MCC skills.
It can be a long journey from the 500 hours for PCC accreditation to the 2,500 hours of client experience required for the MCC designation. WWCM will be there as a handy tool for review and reminding, so you don’t slide into those comfort zones and “bad habits” along the way.
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.
There are approximately 14 hours of audios included in this self-paced audio program series plus additional downloadable resource materials such as the WWCM Resource Manual. I recommend that you take your time when listening to each audio module and take notes in the Resource Manual while you listen. Then, practice what you are learning by applying the new skills in your coaching sessions. The application of the new skills and knowledge will reinforce and deepen the learning for you.
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 WWCM 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 WWCM Program Participants’ website and the WWCM resources. You can revisit the site at any time and download the most current versions of the WWCM audios and materials.
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 (email@example.com) to your email Safe Sender list.
ICF CCEUs are awarded for live, synchronous training courses only. WWCM is a virtual, asynchronous training course comprised of pre-recorded modules and additional downloadable resource materials delivered as a self-paced learning program. Again, RD credits may be applied toward any ICF credential renewal.
IWhen you have completed listening to all of the audio and demo recordings, send me an email letting me know that you’ve completed the program and requesting your RD certification.
