“We will review the ICF MCC coaching competencies, Ethics, and watch MCC coaching recordings. We will observe each other and give feedback through the lens of the MCC competencies. There will be guest MCC coaches who will share industry knowledge and their MCC journey. I will share my collection of MCC “tips and tricks of the trade” while helping participants develop their own unique MCC style. MCCs represent 4% of credentialed coaches globally.” – Debbie Hogan
