What you will receive in the Mentor Program: 12 hours of qualified mentor coaching by a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and faculty member in 2 ICF accredited coach training programs. 10 hours may be applied to mentor coaching which counts for core competency continuing education.

7.5 hours in a small mentor group (10 or less participants) where we will focus on the updated core coaching competencies and how they apply to professional skill development.  Participants will be encouraged to share experiences with one another for learning, bring questions, challenges and successes and participate in live coaching within the group. The group experience provides an opportunity to work with other coaches to build skills and share experiences.   It is required that these sessions are attended live to receive mentoring credit, so an additional group time will be added as a bonus, this offers a total of 9 hours of group mentor coaching hours.

Each participant will receive 3 hours of individual mentor coaching to address their particular challenges and areas for growth. A requirement of this program is that each participant submit at least one recording of a coaching session to review together in an individual session. It is recommended that individual sessions are used for session reviews for optimal learning and growth.

If a participant would like a recording to be reviewed by the mentor in advance of the individual session, an additional fee will be assessed.

Scheduling:  The six group times are listed below, you must attend at least 5 of the 6 sessions to receive full credit for 10 hours of attendance.  Each participant schedules their individual sessions to fix their individual calendar.  Mentor Coaching must occur over a minimum of 3 months to meet ICF requirements.

Your Mentor: Meg Rentschler, MSW, PCC has been teaching and mentoring coaches since 2009. She is coach instructor in 2 ICF certified programs, has been trained as an ICF evaluator and is the host of the weekly coaching podcast: The STaR (Strategies, Tools and Resources) Coach Show where she focuses on skill development, business growth and bringing the impact of coaching into organizations.

Here’s what program participants are saying:

I had the pleasure of working with Meg as my Mentor Coach, while pursuing my ICF Coach Certification. She is such a natural with her clients and I specifically noticed she will never criticize, rather she leads you to make your own corrections. Truly a master of synonyms; Meg takes word choice to a new level and I can only hope I learned enough from her to help me become half as successful in my practice. In the future, I intend to stay current with Meg and best practices by listening in to her show: The STaR Coach show.

I had the advantage of learning from Meg as an instructor in the UTD Executive and Professional Coaching program. It was her training, experience and approachability that made it easy for me to choose work with her as a mentor coach. With a warm demeanor and high energy, I always felt Meg’s nonjudgmental presence in our coaching conversations. It is evident that Meg enjoys teaching and bringing the mentee coaches with whom she works to a higher level of coaching.

Not only was I able to re-new my ICF credential, I gained more awareness of the assumptions I make about the client and the projections I bring into the coaching conversation. As a result, I am able to more easily detach from the outcome, i.e., get the sale. I also feel more confident in ability to discern between appropriate coaching versus therapy clients.

“I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Meg during my studies in the Executive Coaching Program at UTD where she is an instructor and supervising coach. Meg is simply premier at what she does in the coaching realm. She showed her enthusiasm, dedication and commitment to the profession in every interaction she had with our group, all of whom were aspiring coaches. I witnessed her skills in coaching on a regular basis over a one-year period and as a former executive, I learned a lot from her about developing my skills and reaching my potential as an executive coach. Her style is both encouraging and challenging with an intense focus on the needs of her clients. And I must say, the brilliance of her personality will make your day!  I highly recommend Meg for coaching work at the Executive or Personal level.”

I met Meg during the ICF certification class at University of Texas Dallas where she instructs. I was impressed with her professionalism, the thought provoking information during her instruction, as well as how easy it was to approach her with any questions or in general. Due to this initial experience, I decided to join her recertification class. Again, I was impressed with her professionalism, coaching abilities and her willingness to go the extra mile for her students.  I highly recommend Meg if you need a coach and/or to meet your credentialing requirements.”

Meg's thoughtful approach met me where I was and helped me to grow. She asked powerful questions that helped me reflect on who I wanted to be as a coach. She was an excellent role model of the coaching process, and her support was vital as I tried new skills, gained confidence, and found my own voice as a coach. She was always fully present and ready to support me in my growth and development as a coach.

Meg has such a calming way about her. She makes you feel comfortable from the start. She offers guidance in such a genuine and meaningful way, while maintaining your individual self-esteem.

I enjoyed Meg's easy-going style and her brilliance at coaching. She asked tough questions that made me dig deep for understanding and personal clarity. But she always made it seem so effortless! I was able to change my mindset, and I'm happy to say that there haven't been any big "fails" in my coaching since I did mentor coaching with Meg.

I have worked with Meg in a number of ways. She was one of my instructors (which is already a form of mentoring) and I went through her mentoring program the last time I needed to recertify. Meg is so easy to work with, she is real, authentic, energetic, has a great sense of humor, and is one of the best coaches I have worked with. She is able to really get to the root of the session, which is amazing since I can go all over the board. Not only do I enjoy the mentor program, but her podcast adds so much value as well. Meg is a true pleasure to work with!
