Coaching Labs (Stop The Clock)
ICA Coaching Labs are where you can practice and observe coaching in the context of the ICF competencies. An expert coach facilitator will observe a live coaching session and then using a 'stop the clock' technique, they will interrupt the coaching session to highlight the use of a specific ICF Competency . Using an ICA worksheet, students observing the coaching will make note of any competencies they observe, and then encouraged to share these with the group following the session.
Introduction of the ICF competency
The Trainer will introduce the competency and give you examples of the types of questions or techniques a coach can use to demonstrate this competency.
Stop the Clock Coaching Session
Your mentor coach trainer will interrupt the coaching session 2 or 3 times, or whenever they observe an ICF Competency in practice. They then provide specific feedback on the coaching, identify exactly what it was that the coach did that met a specific ICF competency and related PCC Marker.
Discussion with the Coach
Trainer will invite the coach to share their experience of both the coaching and the feedback
