In today’s fast moving and highly demanding world of work, executives – be they talents, Country Managers, VPs, first-time-leaders, high potentials etc. – need AND deserve to be supported by coaches that are best-in-class professionals.
They want to work only with coaches:
For all these reasons, in 2019 we started to roll out the TCO MENTORING CAMP – a high level professionalization path for our affiliated coaches.
TCO International Mentoring Camp takes coaches to an upper PCC (Professional Certified Coach) level using a common framework and a common performance evaluation process, i.e. the PCC markers.
Maintaining a professional standard in coaching requires investment at both personal level, from the Coach’s perspective, and at corporate level, from the coaching program provider. The TCO Mentoring program is a great example of how to support the development of professionalism in coaching at both personal and corporate level at once. Ultimately, this path guarantees professional coaching to TCO’s Clients when engaging with TCO International for their coaching needs.
Deciding to become a coach is a life choice, it means choosing to dedicate your professional life to continuous learning for the sake of unleashing potential in others. As a coach you never stop learning from your coachees. Every single session is a world of its own resulting from a deep and consistent focus on partnering to ensure that what happens is truly connected to what the coachee wants. Doing this constantly requires passion, practice and discipline. The Mentoring Camp does this.
The TCO Mentoring Camp has been a very supportive learning environment where the trust and openness of everyone has made it possible for us all to become better coaches.
For me the TCO Mentoring Camp has been an opportunity to work on those aspects and details that allow a consistent and powerful approach under any circumstance.
I have improved how I partner with my coachees in my coaching sessions, giving them more control of what, when and how they want to be coached and what learnings they are achieving. I was doing this already but the level and frequency with which I am doing it has significantly increased!
The focal point of recorded coaching sessions provided by each coach has enabled us to directly connect theory to practice. Because we use the ICF competencies as our guidelines, the learning has immediate application to achieving the next level of ICF certification.
The sense of professionalism and commitment to improving our work is paramount, alongside a real team spirit. I am grateful for the opportunity to meet and build connections with my colleagues and I have learned a great deal from them.
