Continuing Education For Credentialed Coaches:

Taking a deeper dive into the competencies that I felt I needed to strengthen was helpful in building my confidence. It was also incredibly valuable to recognize strengths throughout the program. Acknowledgements are so easy to forget, yet incredibly valuable! Throughout the learning and practicum, I received many insights into other coaches’ styles and perspectives on how to approach different coaching topics.

Carla Greenan, PCC

The awareness created from reviewing these competencies in this format was priceless. Especially being able to learn from other coaches. I learned practical things to add to my coaching, like exercises and approaches to being present. I have also added a new commitment to not being the expert so my clients have the opportunity to grow in ways that make change sustainable.Thank you for such a great experience!

Teresa Bowers, ACC

I learned how to keep participants engaged over the telephone, through the way the calls were led. It was thoughtfully structured; I felt drawn in. Impressive! It helped me renew my focus on having the client’s best interests at heart and being willing to take risks for the sake of the client.

Susan Gregory, ACC

I like how Jamee and Sheri intentionally held space for our class to provide their experiences and learning which created a expansive learning environment. I especially enjoyed the creation of a true community of learners in our virtual classes through the re-statement of our agreements in each class (creating safety) and the centering exercises.

Sidney Craig Courtice, ACC

I tapped back into some core and important skills. I really appreciated the community of coaches on the call and the diversity of experiences and styles and the richness that brought to the learning.

Laura L. King

What has been particularly beneficial is hearing others coach, and especially what I gained from coaching a participant during one of our sessions. Although I was anxious about it ahead of time, I knew this was an extremely safe space and I trusted that the feedback would be valuable. I was not disappointed! There’s no doubt that my experience from Deeper Conversations has enriched my coaching career. I’m so very grateful to Sheri, Jamee, and my fellow classmates for their input, support, live coaching, creative thinking, and wisdom. Thank you all!

Deb Waterstone, BCC

… I am very grateful for the time, creativity, resourcefulness, and grace you three (Sheri, Jamee and Anne) have invested in this program. I also appreciate the flexibility and user-friendliness of your design, as well as your always prompt and full-service responses to any of my queries and confusions.

Ann Cheng, PCC

The Wednesday class with practice coaching sessions, feedback and listening to other coaching styles provided me confidence just listening to the class. In addition, actually being coached and coaching someone really moved me forward as a coach. The critique at the end I found beneficial of things to be more aware of that will make me a better coach.

Pauline Bach, NB-HWC

It is always wonderful to share space with such a wide variety of coaches, to learn from them everything from general ways of thinking, approaching, being with coaching, to specific tips and pearls.

Keith Byler, D.O., MA, PCC

The wonderful coaching I was privileged to witness, and the outstanding feedback and encouragement shared within the group helped me remember why I love this work. An ancillary benefit was getting to see, recognize, and re-familiarize myself with the Code of Ethics and Core Competencies. These can be read off the page, but seeing them in action is so helpful.

Karin Sawyer, CPCC, ACC

This experience was amazing. I felt like we have become a cohort lifting each other up along the way by getting positive feedback, learning from each other and being in a truly supportive space. Anne was an amazing facilitator. She offered variety, sensitivity and compassion as she fostered a culture of acceptance and inspired growth. I would highly recommend this program to anyone considering it. I will participate again in the future and am willing to speak to anyone in doubt and considering the program.

Barb Girson, ACC

The Deeper Conversations coaching course proved of benefit to me by its laser-focus on the ICF competencies. Every session brought a renewed attention to remembering, understanding and applying the competencies in our daily coaching practice. In addition, the interchange with the other coaches brought individual and unique perspectives to the application of the coaching process to myriad real-life situations. This gamut of topics was enhanced by the remarkable international and multi-cultural atmosphere created by the chemistry between the coaches and facilitators. The way you created and held a safe and positive environment enabled us to enhance our learning experience in an optimum way. I am leaving this course with a renewed respect for the coaching profession and the wonderful people who work in it.

Nathan Geisler, M.A, PCC

I completed my weeks of Deeper Conversations and really enjoyed the experience. More importantly the process helped to strengthen and allowed time for me to practice coaching in a safe and welcoming environment.

Tammy Seibert, PCC

The Deeper Conversations Coaching was very beneficial for me as a coach and as a person. Every single class helped me to review and focus on the ICF Competencies and more importantly, how to apply them in my daily coaching practice. Also hearing the coaching sessions exposed me to different styles and different approaches. That was extremely beneficial for me. Sheri and Jamee create a unique, rich, safe, creative learning environment! Definitely one of the best learning experience you can have as a coach!

Anna Mandelli, ACC

Hearing other coaches approaches, questions, and insights was invaluable. Getting a different perspective or validating mine was affirming. I THOROUGHLY enjoyed the sessions. By far the best continuing Education that I have had to date. You ROCK!

Sterling Gross, PCC

“Learning new and different ways of interpreting the core competencies opened up some new pathways to connecting with the people I coach. This experience reminded me of why I do what I do and helped me to reclaim some of the joy I have always had as a coach.”    

Chuck Berke, PhD, MCC.

Do you ever feel like everyone else understands the ICF Core Competencies, and you are still trying to figure them out? The truth is that it is an endless journey of discovery and conversation and you can earn CCEUs while you are on the journey.
  • What does it mean to be present when coaching?
  • What strategies can you implement to help you build your ability to get and stay present?
  • “Dancing in the moment?” What does that feel like?
  • Learn how to “go with your gut” and use your intuition.
This Continuing Education for Credentialed Coaches is for you when are ready to go to a deeper level of understanding and awareness in their coaching, plus add some new skills to their tool kits.

As time went on, I began to see how the competencies are woven together. That was exciting for me and therefore, I have no doubt I will take this class many times over the years, so I can continue to hone my skills.

Anne and Julie are wonderful to work with. They are deeply skilled and created an atmosphere for deep learning and joy!

Paulina Mustazza

ACC Leadership Coach

I appreciated the opportunity to take this course by phone in a compressed period of time. Carving out 90 minutes twice a week for a couple of months was much easier than I anticipated. I feel I got more than my money’s worth from the program. The diversity of backgrounds in the class, especially having non-US participants, was a definite plus. The opportunity to coach and receive feedback from the other participants was very valuable as well. WELL DONE!!! I’m deeply gratified for Deeper Conversations!

Jonathan H. Ward, PCC

This is a wonderful way to sharpen your coaching skills and earn just-in-time CCEUs from the comfort of home!”

Joan Wangler, MCC

In my journey to renew my ACC, I had the pleasure of attending the Deeper Conversations continuing education series, and working one on one with both Jamee and Sheri in mentor coaching. What a gift. Deeper Conversations brought me a greater understanding and appreciation of the ICF Core Competencies, while allowing me to observe and interact with other coaches of varying levels. The sacred space was filled with opportunities to learn, teach, and grow. The mentor coaching by both Jamee and Sheri has been invaluable. I have strengthened and improved my coaching skills under their guidance, and have gained confidence. I highly recommend both the Deeper Conversations class and Jamee and Sheri as mentor coaches. Thank you both!

It was incredibly valuable to hear from my fellow coaches in action. It was helpful to hear different approaches and techniques, and to contemplate how I might incorporate these strategies to deepen my coaching conversations. The title of the course is accurate and reflective of the value! I appreciated my colleagues willingness to take risks, be open and share their wisdom and experience.

Diane Locke, MA, PCC

Participating in Deeper Conversations with MCC Mentor Coach provided me a wonderful, rich opportunity to refresh my coaching skills. Jamee Tenzer and Sheri Boone are both awesome, skilled mentors, facilitators and coaches! They consistently created a safe place that facilitated coaching learning and skill practice. I highly recommend this program to coaches who want to take their coaching to the next level!

Denise Shields, Ph.D.

I benefited from the sharing of experiences and insights by practicing coaches who have had significant experience coaching in different scenarios. The practice sessions were also very useful in not only practicing as a coach in a very safe environment and getting feedback immediately thereafter, but also in getting coached by senior coaches. For me, the course was a great refresher and re-enforced some of my skills and beliefs.

Pradeep Mukerjee, PCC

I felt fully supported by my classmates as well as the facilitators masterful approach to mentoring. At the end of every class I felt energized, whole and empowered to integrate my new learning into my coaching practice.

Tasha Moodley, ACC

As a result of my work with the Deeper Conversations cohort and coaching mentors, I have learned how to relax more into my coaching. I don’t have to be the “fixer”. I can be more present, listen more closely, ask more insightful questions and hold up the mirror to celebrate the essence of my clients.

Deb Maher

The Deeper Conversations program exceeded my expectations! I joined the convenient program to obtain the CCEUs needed to renew my PCC. The group of coaches in the program were at different stages in their coaching journeys though, for the most part, more experienced. The deeper exploration of the core competencies, additional practice, and observing coaching demonstrations, was valuable and enjoyable. I walked away with at least one key learning to enhance my practice after each session. I highly recommend Deeper Conversations for those in need of earning CCEUs for renewal or those simply interested in advancing their practice.

Carla Street, M.S., PCC

Jamee and Sheri have designed an awesome ten week program; I can’t imagine a better way to cover the core competencies of coaching, allow participants a safe place to practice/improve their coaching, and the opportunity to draw upon so many great coaches’ learnings and practices. There are so many lasting “take-aways”, I am grateful to be a participant in Deeper Conversations.

Mary T. Miller, PCC

The Deeper Conversations Coaching Program is an invaluable opportunity to expand, enrich and deepen yourself and your skills as a coach. Expertly structured to be a secure space to learn, relearn or refresh the core competencies of coaching.
