Beyond the Page Podcast -Un-learning ~ The key to mentor coaching

Un-learning ~ The key to mentor coaching

We are excited to share with you the next interview in our “Beyond the Page” series featuring Clare Norman.

Before we became coaches, we each developed ways of seeing the world that kept us safe or gave us a sense of belonging to the “tribe,” whether that tribe was a family system, a peer group, or our coach training cohort.

The best coaching works on the “who” of the thinker, so that the “what” falls into place with ease (per Marcia Reynolds in Coach the Person, Not the Problem). The same holds true for learning to coach.

The best training and the best mentor coaching work on the “who” of the coach, their beliefs, mindsets and paradigms, so that the “what” of the coaching competencies falls into place with ease.

In this podcast, we will discuss what mentor coaching is, why we need to change our our mindsets and how we can apply them to our coaching practices.

With over 20 years of coaching experience, Clare Norman MCC is highly sought after by other expert coaches, as well as successful coach training companies as a Master Mentor Coach. Clare looks to continually sharpen individuals’ coaching edge and upskill mentor coaches so they can deliver high-quality feedback to their coaches-in-development. Her laser focus on mindset shifts and her knack for spotting marginal gains has made her a go-to person for coaches looking for mentorship and practical, meaningful ways to improve their practice. With an international following of both her coaching peers and senior leadership, Clare is making a difference to the world of work via the professional application of coaching.
