About the Inspiring Competence Program

Hello!  I’m Fran Fisher,  a Master Certified Coach (MCC) and mentor coach for those who aspire to an ever-deepening mastery as you explore and expand your own personal and professional growth.  Such exploration requires commitment, curiosity, courage, and compassion for ourselves and others.   Our profession is a gift to the world who needs what we have to offer, whatever your special interests or niche may be.  As we seek mastery in our professional and personal lives, we do so by embodying what we learn and experience.

I invite you to step into an intimate learning environment with like-minded and like-spirited peers to:

  • Enhance your coaching mastery to extraordinary competence
  • Stretch yourself into new learning territories
  • Leverage your strengths and passion for greater contribution

  • Empower your personal learning, growth, and transformation
  • Deepen your coaching presence and power with clients
  • Enhance your coaching skills for accessing the transformational zone
  • Learn in the safety of supportive connections in your small group of peers

The Expanded Inspiring Competence Program

With the September 2024 Inspiring Competence program, I am excited to introduce a new Team approach formatwith three additional MCC mentors joining me in delivering Inspiring Competence 2024.

Joining me in the mentor coaching roles will be Annie Gelfand, MCC; Kim Miles, MCC; and Uta Rohde, MCC.  Each of these coaches is also an Advanced Certified Mentor Coach (ACMC).  Our shared vision for this collaboration is that this expansion offers increased synergies for deepening the learning and increasing the value for YOU individually and as a group experience.

I’ve had the privilege of mentoring and training Annie, Kim, and Uta to ensure that each of us aligns to the vision for Inspiring Competence objectives and the learning and support we can offer you.  At the same time, we offer you our unique perspectives and expertise that will surely deepen the experience for you as a participant.  From beginning to end, we’ll give you our best coaching efforts, along with insights, feedback, encouragement, and support.

Learn more about Annie, Kim, and Uta in their coaching profiles linked below and in the ACMC and WWCMC mentor directories here on my website.

Additional Benefits with the New Expanded Format

  • You will now have four master coaches to choose from for your 1:1 mentor sessions.  We are also offering an additional 1:1 mentor session for each of you. Three are included in your tuition and an additional mentor session #4 will be provided on a complimentary basis.
  • Having four mentors to choose from offers the added benefit of learning from the experience, perspectives, and coaching styles of different master coaches.
  • We can also offer you a broader range of 1:1 mentor session scheduling opportunities (via Calendly) so you can schedule ahead and with a different coach each time if you wish to do so.
  • I will be providing ongoing supervision for your mentor team, so I will be asking your permission to record and listen to some of the recordings of your 1:1 mentor sessions with Annie, Kim, and Uta.  This enables me to also support you both directly and indirectly.

Our goal is to provide you with generous support for your learning and growth.  You can help us help you by trusting each member of the team as your learning partner.

I hope you share my excitement about this new direction for the Inspiring Competence program!  And, as always, I am open to questions and feedback or hearing about any concerns you may have regarding this transformative experience.
