How We Do It

My ACC Mentor Coaching package is different in that, unlike group coaching programs, you receive personal, individualized attention because we work together one-on-one.  You gain valuable opportunities to grow your coaching skills, practice coaching, process current client situations and receive clear, supportive, beneficial oral and written feedback to build your confidence as a coach with:

  • 10 hours of mentor coaching as per ICF requirements.  The coaching is provided one-on-one and conducted via telephone or Skype over a 3-4 month period (ICF requires mentor coaching be over a period of 3 months).
  • A review of the ICF Code of Ethics and 11 ICF Core Coaching Competencies (required by ICF).
  • A chance to provide coaching and gain immediate feedback.
  • Reviews of three coaching calls with your clients (with client permission) with written and oral feedback emphasizing your desired areas of development.
  • A Certificate of Completion verifying the required 10 hours of mentoring for your ICF credentialing application.


“I am so grateful for the time that Linda and I spent together during our Mentor Coaching sessions. It was truly game changing for me as a coach. As a result of Linda’s coaching and mentorship, I am a more confident, engaging and qualified coach. She is insightful, gentle and thorough in her questioning and her support. I signed up for coaching with Linda to “check the box” but received so much more than I could have hoped for or imagined. Thank you Linda!” – C.O., ACC, California

“Linda Hardenstein went the extra mile as my mentor coach, offering detailed feedback that helped me take my coaching to the next level.  Because of her personalized approach, I feel ready and eager to coach the most challenging client. I got much more than a certificate from working with Linda!” – P.S., ACC, Ohio

“I was a bit skeptical as to the value of working with a mentor coach and was doing this to ‘check the box’ for my ACC renewal. It turns out to have been a highly valuable experience for me. Linda was a pleasure to work with and helped me identify areas where I was able to step up my coaching capabilities over the course of the mentor coaching engagement. Thanks Linda!” – M.N., California
