The Really Competent Coach

Price: $9.99
currently unavailable - new edition coming


As a Master Certified Coach, Mentor Coach and Coach Educator, Cathy Shaughnessy knows how challenging it can be to teach, learn and integrate the ICF Core Coach Competencies. There is so much to know!

That’s why she has written this series of downloadable books, The Really Competent Coach.

Using examples and a few stories along the way, Cathy has provided her interpretation of the competencies to help you really ‘get’ them.

In the first book, Understanding the ICF Core Coach Competencies Framework, you’ll learn:

  • The purpose of competencies; why they matter to you and your clients
  • Precisely what it takes to develop a high level of competency
  • The three levels of ICF credentials and how they differ
  • What each of the components of the ICF Coach Core Competencies really mean
  • How to create a plan for integrating the competencies into your work

Here’s what customers have said:

"Cathy provides the reader with not just a clear understanding of the importance of each competency but how to continually develop them in your coaching practice. She presents strategies that are practical and easy to integrate. She also shares valuable resources that she uses in her own coaching practice to develop her skills and keep organized. I highly recommend this book to all coaches, whether you are just starting out or have been coaching for years. It provides suggestions on how to implement continuous improvement as part of your coaching practice. Thank you for sharing your wisdom Cathy!"

VP Business Development, Lee Hecht Harrison Knightsbridge

"Truly understanding the competencies is hard. This book helps to simplify and explain them and provides helpful suggestions on how to work towards becoming an even more competent coach. I can’t wait for the next four books to dive in more deeply!"

Design and Construction Project Manager, City of Kitchener
