As a Mentor Coach, Beth emphasizes the creation a brave space for learning and experimentation; coach-clients are invited to release any “good student” energy or feelings of needing to perform, instead adopting a “beginner’s mind.” Feedback and learning are focused on progress, not perfection, as well as building self-trust, self-awareness, and the confidence that comes from being grounded thoroughly in the ICF Core Competencies and ethical practices.
