Project Description

The PULSE of Coaching is a group mentoring program for advanced coaching skills, accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF). It includes 10 mentoring hours for ACC and PCC credentialing and awarding 30 CCE units (24 Core Competences & 6 resource development) for ACC renewal and PCC.

The PULSE of Coaching is designed for coaches who want:

  • to acquire an ACC or PCC credentials with ICF
  • to renew their current ACC or PCC credentials

  • to transform their learning into solid coaching skills
  • to develop their own coaching style
  • to take the next step in their coaching development
  • to boost their confidence as coaches
  • to increase the impact of their coaching conversations

Our WHY to create The PULSE of Coaching

Our mission as mentor coaches is to contribute to the establishment of high standards in the coaching profession. We support coaches who are striving for professional excellence and growth, provoking them to boldly unleash their coaching genius.

We believe that all coaches deserve mentor-coaches to help them unleash their talent and personal coaching style, just like the great Mozart had a piano teacher to discover and develop his genius.

Being trainer assistants for the last three years in the ACTP program “The Art and Science of Coaching” of Erickson college, Canada, our task is to support coaches from all around the world to master and apply the core coaching competencies as defined by ICF at a PCC level. We like saying that this work keeps us on “the pulse of coaching”. This inspired us to apply our mentoring skills in support of our fellow coaches who strive for taking their coaching skills to a higher level and acquire ICF credentials.
