Putting Theory Into Practice with 'Stop the Clock' Coaching Labs

Stop the Clock Coaching labs are an opportunity for new coaches to practice their coaching skills and for experienced coaches to fine tune their coaching skills.  In each lab, there will be a live coaching session where an expert coach facilitator (PCC or MCC) will interrupt the coaching session, using a 'stop the clock' technique, to highlight the use of a specific ICF Competency .  Using a worksheet, participants will also observe the coaching and then make note of any competencies they observe, and then share them with the group at the end of the session. Participants are encouraged to take on the role of both coach and client.

Stop the Clock Coaching Labs are included in all our Accredited Coach Training programs. They are an opportunity to put theory into practice, and are an important learning space to prepare for Mentor Coaching, Observed Coaching, and their final performance evaluation.  

Students in our Approved Coach Specific Training (ACSTH) programs enjoy and participate in Coaching Labs to learn more about the role of both Coach and Client.  It's a great space to see coaching in action, learn more about the ICF competencies, ask questions, and listen to the feedback from the Mentor Coach

Coaches needing Continuing Coach Education programs will join Coaching Labs as a way of further developing their coaching skills.  It's a safe space to fine tune their expertise, or trial new coaching techniques. 

Why These Videos are Powerful Training Tools

The Mentor Coach "stops the clock" when they observe an ICF competency being demonstrated. This real time learning is extremely powerful.

  • They provide a rare opportunity to "listen in" on a coaching session with accredited ICF coaches
  • Learning to coach in a way that satisfies the ICF requirements can be challenging. These videos identify the competencies in action, leaving no doubt as to the types of questioning and required to become an ICF accredited coach.
  • The timestamps provide a quick and easy way to fast forward to the critique given by the Mentor Coach
  • The annotated transcripts enable students to go back over the video and review the sections in which ICF competencies are met.
