Watch this video of Anne Durand, Ben Dean, and five recent graduates of the Marker Intensive Lab talking about the class, how its structured, how students spend time in the full class and in coaching in small Zoom groups, what the ICF Markers, in fact, are, why it’s important to integrate the Markers into your coaching, how much students actually learn in this class, what Anne is like as a teacher, and much more.  (24 mins)

1. About This Class

This course is designed to help you master and integrate the ICF Markers into your coaching.  You may want this course because you are preparing for the ICF exam.  Or you may have taken the certification exam years ago or may not need to take it now, but wish to master the Markers in order to significantly improve your coaching skill.  Classes are designed to break down and help you become familiar with using the ICF markers.

(What are the Markers?  The PCC Markers were developed by the ICF  as behavioral markers derived  from the ICF Core Competencies that would assist assessors in identifying key behaviors and skills of effective coaching at the PCC level.  Our experience is that by mastering the Markers, you can significantly improve your approach to coaching.)

The course is designed to improve your confidence with immediate and constant feedback from Anne Durand, MCC.  Anne has served on the Application Review Committee of the International Coach Federation which reviews applications from coaches for the ICF certification. This group is for dedicated students who are committed and actively practicing for the ICF exams.

This class is also for ICF certified coaches who are not familiar with the markers and want a supportive environment to practice.  This class will also count under core competencies for ICF certified coaches looking for re-certification credits.

Learn about the common rookie ICF marker mistakes.

Overcome your fear of doing live coaching in front of others in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Get support and tailored strategies to overcome barriers and anxiety in sitting for the ICF exam.

2. Prerequisites

The typical student for this course will, as a minimum, be halfway through Skills (The Intensive Individual Coaching Skills Master Class or they will have already completed Skills. It will also be of interest for students who have completed or are enrolled in Supervision.

This class is also for ICF Certified Coaches who are not familiar with markers and want a supportive environment to practice and develop mastery with the new ICF markers.

3. Class Design

This course uses a fortnightly two-hour practicum format, focused on practicing and using the markers in a mixed large-group-and-small-group format with expert Teaching Assistants (TAs).

This experiential two-hour fortnightly workshop format with Anne and expert TAs will help you develop confidence and demonstrate competence with the ICF markers. It will also help you recognize what you do when placed under exam conditions and to develop the awareness and confidence to do what is required to excel in the ICF markers exam.

Finally, this training is designed to apply the markers in a variety of scenarios to demonstrate the markers with in-the-moment feedback.

4. Who Should Attend?

This course is intended for any practitioner interested in more deeply integrating and mastering the ICF Markers.  This includes coaches, therapists, social workers, psychologists, counselors, life coaches, parent coaches, health and wellness coaches, executive coaches, consultants, change agents, managers, business professionals, entrepreneurs human resource professionals, educators/teachers, and also parents and consumers working on personal development.  It also includes coaches whose coach training predated the Markers and now intend to master them.  This webinar is for all those who seek to deeply integrate and master the ICF Markers–whether for themselves or for those with whom they work.

Finally, coaches from outside of MentorCoach frequently take (and love) this class.  For the  typical MentorCoach student, this course will, at a minimum, be roughly halfway through Foundations.  Or for students ready to enter Skills or Supervision.  Anne says that students who take Marker Lab during or after Foundations, “SAIL through Skills and Supervision”.  It’s a great class.
