Join two of our ICF Sacramento Coaches, Laurie Cozart, MCC and Ray Weaver, PCC in this outstanding program to enhance and expand your coaching skills starting in September. "Signing Up" means committing to all classes for the one fee paid.
The program meets once a month for six months (See dates below)*. Space is limited to 6 coaches. This program is approved for participants to receive 10 Core Competency CCEU's upon completion of all sessions.
The Coaching Mastermind and Case Analysis is a reflective practice for learning and development of coaches, beyond mentoring. In partnership we will explore with coaches their coaching work within evolving systems, focusing on patterns, thinking, models and relationships dynamics.
This process benefits the coach, their clients and the organizations they serve as the cornerstone for integrity and quality of coaching.
As a professional coach, you empower individuals, groups, and organizations to make important change in their lives and work. As such, your work is deeply influential, requiring you to be ever vigilant of practices that could render clients vulnerable to dependency on your partnership.
Professional supervision provides a safe and collaborative space for coaches to reflect on their practice, set appropriate boundaries, and ensure coaching puts client learning and decision-making front and center.
The ICF Global Board, who “strongly encourages” supervision defines it this way:
“Coaching Supervision is a collaborative learning practice to continually build the capacity of the coach through reflective dialogue for the benefit of both coaches and clients. (It) focuses on the development of the coach’s capacity through offering a richer and broader opportunity for support and development…and creates a safe environment for the coach to share their successes and failures in becoming masterful in the way they work with their clients.”
Supervision is no longer optional for many coaches. Increasingly corporate clients and procurement specialists are making evidence of regular supervision part of their quality assurance process.
ICF Sacramento’s Coaching Mastermind and Case Analysis group offers best-of-class supervision, led by Laurie Cozart, MCC and Ray Weaver, PCC.
Join Laurie and Ray, and an intimate group of fellow coaches, for a six-month course that begins on September 13.

"Testimonial from Donna"
“I have been coaching for about four years. My training provided a solid foundation, but my experience has taught me much about the importance of reflecting on my practice and continually improving my skills. Professional supervision in a collaborative small group environment has been a game changer, accelerating my professional development, broadening my perspective, and strengthening my courage to check my ego in service of my clients’ capacity to make change in their lives."
