My personal philosophy is that we are all seeking to be and become the best version of ourselves. I have a passion for helping coaches gain more confidence as professional coaches. I do that through deeper understanding of the ICF Core Competencies. For example, by studying Coaching Presence, we work on your personal growth and development. Understanding how to form the Coaching Agreement will deepen your confidence too. I only offer core competency-specific mentor coaching for 10 hours required to meet graduation and ICF Certification standards. I am an experienced leadership and executive coach, with all my coaching work within the corporate environment at this time.
Jennifer Anderson, PCC, PMC - Portland, Oregon
Do you want a coach who has a great sense of humor and the ability to be light even in the most challenging of situations? Do you want someone who will ask a lot of you, and help you remember what you really want? Do you want a coach who really understands what it takes for a coach to grow themselves and their business at the same time? Do you want someone who is highly intuitive and has fun with it? I've built a fun, thriving practice using all these traits and I can help you do the same. I'm a faculty member for Coach U, and host of the Public Speaking SIG.

Jan Austin, PhD, MCC, BCC, PMC - Black Mountain, NC
I delight in working with mentees who want to translate what they care passionately about into value for others and build a thriving coaching practice in the process. Since 2001, I've supported coaches aspiring to work with organizational leaders and teams to hone their coaching confidence and skill--to move beyond technique into polished coaching that fosters great results. I also support them to calibrate and enact strategies for attaining the gratifying, well-paying work they most want. Clients appreciate my ability to balance honest communication with compassion and heart in my coaching. As a certification assessor with ICF and Coach U for over a decade, I bring astute observation and clarifying insight to support mentees to excel in their coaching and cultivate their distinctive coaching styles. If you're ready, let's just jump in right where you are and play it from there! I'll happily join you from my perch in the western North Carolina mountains.

Brenda Ellington Booth, MBA, PhD, PCC, PMP – Evanston, IL USA
One of the most joyful experiences I have is to work with new coaches who want to grow and develop themselves as well as their coaching skills. I take an inside-out approach with all my clients and coaches. I believe all of us first need to understand and tend to ourselves to truly show up in ways that allow us to reach our fullest potential and serve others. I love to partner with coaches who are ready and willing to explore themselves and start (or continue) the process of becoming comfortable in their own skin as they move into the profession of coaching.
I have taught at the Kellogg School of Management for over 20 years. I am a proud graduate of Coach U and have been able to transform my career around coaching while at Kellogg. For the last 10 years, I have taught and coached MBA students and executives on their personal leadership journey and coaching skills. Many of my students have gone on to become successful coaches.

I believe coaching is a calling. A call to bring forth and share your magnificence with the world and in doing so, you give others permission to do the same. Building a coaching practice isn't always easy, but it doesn't have to be hard. I love working with people who have a big vision, see themselves as a leader and are light-hearted, soulful, spiritual, intuitive and love to have fun.

Ann Fogolin, MCC, PMC - Toronto, Ontario, Canada
My practice includes clients from a wide variety of backgrounds at all levels of professional seniority and has designed focus on increasing personal development, managing career development and honing leadership skills. Through mentor coaching we would focus on three areas: personal foundation development; coaching development and practice development. Similar, aren't they? I believe a cohesive approach works best to insure my clients are best equipped to assess and make choices that will be of most benefit for them. As a professional mentor coach, finding out how and why people do what they do is what drives me. I specialize in helping people be curious about the way things are, determining how to make improvements and then creating a link between the two. I am a PCC, Coach U and Corporate Coach U Faculty member and course leader and full time coach.

The phrase, “If you are working too hard, you are not coaching.”, is what I have heard myself say repeatedly over the last 15 years as a mentor coach and faculty member at CoachInc.com. If this statement resonates with you, call me! It is time to take your skills and coaching practice to new levels of effectiveness while leaving the hard work behind. Our clients do the work, right? I can assist you in getting clear about what these and other coaching clichés mean in the reality of a coaching conversation.

You are the change you seek.

I mentor coaches who are interested in discovering a simple way to build their business. With my 4-step process, my mentees identify their target audience and get moving in the direction of a fulfilling business/life right away. As your Mentor, I work with you to identify those possibilities and bring out your passion. You will work with a time management system that provided strategies for focus and clear direction. My style is intuitive with a little kick to it and humor sprinkled throughout because laughter is the music of the heart. I’ve been a mentor coach for over 20 years.

Preparing Coaches to MAKE IT, so They NEVER have to FAKE IT!
If you’re a coach, new or seasoned, who is tired of suffering from “Crappy Coach Syndrome,” then it’s time you stop feeling like a coaching fraud or imposter and start feeling like a coach who has gotten their stride. When you get your coaching stride, you hear what you used to miss, you ask powerful questions without struggling to create them and the voices in your head pushing to you to tell the client what to do and focus on fixing the problems go radio silent, so you can stay present, curious and potent. Coach U’s philosophy includes the whole of you too, the more you grow, the better coach you become; the clearer you get on your marketing message, the easier it is to get clients and grow your practice. We call the 3 P’s of Mentoring: Personal (foundation), Professional (skills, competence) and Practice (business) Development. What's it like to mentor with me? "I never believed I could have grown so much in so little time." "...for the first time I truly felt like a coach!” “You take my ramblings and get to the heart and key of them and help me see that.” If this is what you want to be able to do, then we might be a great fit. If you want to grow into that level of confidence in yourself, your abilities, and your business, which right now might feel unimaginable and then make that happen for others, then set up a no-cost discovery session to explore what you really want from mentoring and to see how we fit. Coach U Faculty Member since 2004. Host of the Coach U Newcomers SIG and Coach U’s Christians Coaching SIG.

Dr. Joel M. Rothaizer, MCC, PMC - Edmonton, AB & Boulder, CO
My work is in organizational consulting, executive coaching, and leadership training. Our foundation includes integration of developmental models, practical neurobiology, and systemic/contextual thinking. I believe that 90% of our effectiveness as coaches has to do with who we are as human beings, our own personal development, and I’ve developed extensive expertise using the Enneagram toward that end. I also assist my clients in thinking and acting at higher levels of complexity and effectiveness. I enjoy facilitating skill development, along with other areas of mentor coaching . In a previous life I worked as a psychologist.
Amy Ruppert, MCC – Chicago, IL
The road to mastery is a journey into understanding yourself and your craft. It goes way beyond your training, experience and efficacy as a coach. It takes pushing through your own barriers, both external and internal, in order to liberate your fullest potential. When you ask this of yourself, you can then ask it of the people you coach. The coaches I take on to mentor are ready for this challenge. They are as dedicated to their own growth as they are to the technical aspects of their craft. They have a thirst for excellence and are willing to do what it takes to serve the people they coach in the very best way. I have had a robust coaching practice for over 20 years and work mainly with senior corporate leaders in a wide range of industries. I have also held many leadership roles myself within the coaching profession. Amongst them, I had the honor of serving on the ICF committee that developed the core competencies for coaching and have trained and assessed hundreds of coaches for ICF certification since then.
Elias Scultori, PCC, CUCG, CCLP, HC, MM, PMC
My approach is organic, holistic and inclusive. To be successful in our industry, a coach must have a command of the coaching skills. As a member of the ICF Assessors’ community, I stay current with the latest developments in our community and our profession’s best practices. This is a crucial asset that I gladly pass on to my mentees. But skills development is not enough! Besides this essential foundation, it is also imperative for a coach to develop a sharp business strategy that is fully grounded in their own personal identity and values. My years of experience working in the marketing world of the NYC area as well as my decades of involvement in pastoral ministry complements the business development and personal foundation work I do with my mentees. As I like to say, “If you are a coach, you also need a coach.” Skills, Business and Personal growth; this summarizes the long-term endeavor of an effective coach and this is the commitment I have with you.
