Q. How will the sessions be structured?
A. Over the 7 group mentoring sessions, we will learning more about your individual needs, norming together as a group, reviewing the ICF Code of Ethics, studying our ICF Core Competencies, and reviewing recordings together. While your Mentor Coaches will have recordings, you are strongly encouraged, with documented client permission, to submit your own [of between 20-60 minutes per ICF guidelines] to enhance your learning and refine your craft. Your individual mentoring sessions may be scheduled between you and either Jane or Rob based on mutual availability. Further details about structure will be covered during our first session.
Q. What if I miss session(s)?
A. Your commitment to your cohort is essential. Life does happen though! If you miss a session, there will be a make-up session held Wednesday, May 22, from 7-8 PM ET. If you miss more than one session, your Mentor Coaches cannot guarantee availability to make that session up. If there is availability, you will be charged a nominal fee for a make-up session with Jane or Rob.
Q. What is the cohort refund policy?
A. While you'll receive and be asked to acknowledge a program agreement during registration, if there is an extenuating circumstance and you need to drop out of the program, you will be refunded for any unattended sessions, minus $75 for each attended session. If you miss individual sessions but are not dropping out of the program, no refunds will be given for missed sessions. There will be a make-up session held Wednesday, May 22, from 7-8 PM ET. If there are less than 5 people who enroll in this cohort, the cohort will be cancelled and full refunds will be given.
Q. What if I just need group mentoring but I already have an ICF Mentor Coach for my individual mentoring hours?
A. Our Spring 2024 cohort is designed to be all-inclusive, and includes both group and individual mentor coaching with either Jane or Rob. You may of course elect to hire and pay a separate mentor coach if you choose; the ICF Mentor Coach registry is also a great resource for finding select ICF Mentor Coaches!
