Curious what professional coaching is? Want to learn basics without breaking a bank? Cannot commit to a long, 8-12 months program just yet? Want to start on your ICF certification path?
We have listened and Discover Coaching – A Part of Tandem Coaching Academy’s The Coaching Path© is the answer!
Welcome to Tandem Coaching Academy’s video series on the ICF competency model adopted in 2019. In this series, we’re going to be looking at the new ICF core coaching competency model that covers all the competencies of professional coaching, and how ICF knows that you are a competent coach.
These new core competencies have been divided up into eight core competencies of coaching and three different segments. In the first segment you’re going to find the foundations. And under foundations, there are two competencies, Demonstrates Ethical Practice and Embodies a Coaching Mindset. The next bunch of competencies are in the co-creating the relationship grouping. Those are Establishes and Maintains Agreements, Cultivates Trust and Safety, Maintains Presence.
After that, you’re going to find a few more that fall into the Communicating Effectively grouping. Those are Listens Actively, Evokes Awareness. And then the grouping of Cultivating Learning and Growth is the final competency, which is Facilitates Client Growth.
Each one of these core competencies has some bullet points underneath it, which are the markers of how you understand those core competencies are demonstrated, when you’re actually coaching. Each of the competencies also has a short definition.
So in this video series, we’ll be breaking down each one of the coaching competencies and discussing those markers independently, so that you can have a really clear understanding of what they mean, how they show up, and how your assessor will be grading your recording to determine your level of competency. So I’m looking forward to having you in this series and excited to be your instructor.
Welcome to Tandem Coaching Academy’s Mentor Coach Program.
My name is Cherie Silas, and I’m the Director of Coaching and Education here at Tandem. And I’m also one of the Mentor Coaches. This course is designed to help you understand a little bit more about what the competencies of coaching look like on an overall perspective.
So maybe up until now, you’ve been looking at the the PCC markers and matching your coaching up to the PCC markers to make sure that those things are showing up in your coaching and that’s great. They should. And when we grade recordings for credentialing, it goes a bit deeper than just PCC markers.
For those recordings, we’re looking at the overall competency. Do you understand, for example, the coaching agreement on an overall basis? Do you understand what coaching presence is? And are you competent, and being present with your client throughout? These things won’t necessarily show up in the markers, but they’ll show up in the way you interact with your client and display a full understanding of the work you’re doing as a coach.
So we think that these videos will be valuable in helping you to determine which recordings should you turn in for your final assessment for your credential.
Looking forward to working with you and we’ll see you soon.
This video course includes videos that explain core coaching competencies in detail and help you decode PCC Markers.
The course DOES NOT include any work with a Mentor Coach and cannot be submitted to ICF in lieu of Mentor Coaching. Should you decide to go through Mentor Coaching with us we have a few options for you available – click here to learn more.

You got your CSM a couple of years ago. Wasn’t it exciting? The class was amazing, the world seemed to be full of possibilities and you could do everything and anything!
And then the life happened.
The world of command and control struck back. You quickly hit the limits of your knowledge and capabilities. And now you face the seemingly insurmountable organizational problems. The teams seem to be going through the motions of checking the boxes in their Scrum events. Your bosses are on your back for the lack of progress. You are stressed and confused. The pressure is coming from everywhere and you fear for your job. Oh, and on top of that you hear that “this agile thing never works.”
We have been there. We saw similar things occurring across industries and organizations. We felt same fear and confusion. And we heard the same, “this agile thing doesn’t work” too. And we failed. And failed again. And then we succeeded.
