Mastery is not about skill. Rather it is about Way of Being and a key aspect to this is who the coach is being in the present moment, and how they are as learners with their clients. Key is they are in flow and have the capacity to be fully present to whatever is arising and using that in the coaching where useful.
Mastery is about being able to be very adaptive and explore in the moment whatever is arising without feeling pressurised and having to get somewhere. There's a mood of deep acceptance and curiosity and the ability to be a learner with your client.
It's about letting go of being the expert in any form, and this requires some unlearning and re-learning about yourself, the beliefs you have about what it means to be a coach, and a willingness to invoke the spirit of being a beginner.

As a professional Executive coach for 12 years I felt I needed more sharpening of my skills and have been working with Karen as my mentor coach for the last six months.
Karen is a very experienced integral, somatic, and ontological coach who I respect for her breadth of knowledge and ability to get to the heart of the matter quickly. With her powerful questions, deep listening, intuition and humour she supported me in quickly surfacing the underlying issues I was facing and has enabled me to take my own coaching conversations with my clients to a much more powerful and impactful level. “

Initially, achieving MCC certification looks seductively simple. In practice, meeting the requirements of the MCC performance evaluation requires a deep inquiry into your own way of being in the way you coach. Many hours of oversight and scrutiny are required from an expert mentor coach to usher you to a point where you can confidently pursue the MCC performance evaluation. It is a deep learning process.
Karens' unique set of competencies and her nuanced approach will significantly amplify your learning in this demanding undertaking.
