This week is a veddy scary week, boys and girls, as Count Floyd used to say. Thursday is my first supervised coaching class. Twelve weeks of laser coaching, with six people coaching someone of their choice, with an ICF-certified coach watching for the 11 core competencies of coaching.
In the words of Dan Akroyd in Ghostbusters, “I’m frightened beyond the capacity for rational thought.” Here is where 19 months of classes, 11 months of actual coaching, and every moment where I was not quite in focus during any of the above all come together. In these 12 weeks I will have the opportunity to coach six times, and be deemed either competent or not competent in these, well, competencies.
I will write more about this in the days to come.
