Scott Davidson, M.B.A, ACC

Scott believes that a life or career is not a problem to be solved but a mystery to explored and appreciated. Scott spent his first career in international marketing across the Pacific Rim before graduating from inviteCHANGE and becoming an ACC certified coach in 2012. ICF Washington State awarded Scott as the Rookie Coach of the Year in 2012. He recently completed the process for recertifying as an ACC coach. Scott works with professional men and women with a variety of agendas. Scott frequently helps clients establish and maintain mutually rewarding relationships, envision and make plans for a dramatically different future, and to go places with their life or career that, up until now, they have not been able to reach. Scott created a manual and extensive program specifically to help successful people transition beyond the end of their primary career into a deeply rewarding life as they move forward. Scott is passionate about helping others explore their inner reserves and dreams. 

Scott helped found the South Sound Satellite of ICF Washington State in 2012 and has been the principal facilitator for the satellite ever since. Scott also enjoys exploring forests and mountains. Scott recently completed serving two years as the chair of the Tacoma branch of The Mountaineers. Scott also volunteers to teach outdoor leadership at The Mountaineers and leadership at Unity of South Sound.

Join us for: Coaching Demonstration: In the Fishbowl

We call this coaching in the fishbowl because we will have a live demonstration of coaching as part of the program. We will open with a sharing of the ICF PCC markers used by experienced coaches evaluating the proficiency of coaches as they seek certification. There are three levels of certification: ACC, PCC, and MCC. Each level requires a certain level of education and training, logged coaching hours with paying clients, and evaluation of demonstrated coaching proficiency. ICF now has established specific PCC criteria for each ICF core competency. These are the “markers” that evaluators look for. They note whether the marker was demonstrated or not as they evaluate coaches as a mentor coach or when evaluating coaches for certification.

We will spend the first part of our session acknowledging the markers and clarifying the levels of ICF certification. We will then look in some depth at core competency number 2, “Establishing the Coaching Agreement.” This competency is crucial to having a successful coaching engagement and session. Those markers are:

1. Coach helps the client identify, or reconfirm, what s/he wants to accomplish in the session.

2. Coach helps the client to define or reconfirm measures of success for what s/he wants to accomplish in the session.

3. Coach explores what is important or meaningful to the client about what s/he wants to accomplish in the session.

4. Coach helps the client define what the client believes he/she needs to address or resolve in order to achieve what s/he wants to accomplish in the session.

5. Coach continues conversation in direction of client’s desired outcome unless client indicates otherwise.

Finally, we will move into a coaching demonstration by Sandra Jones, PCC certified coach, followed by feedback and discussion. This should help you sharpen your focus on all the competencies and especially the critical opening phase of any session, creating the coaching agreement

“Establishing the coaching agreement is the coaching.”
