Coaching and Mentoring for Coaches


I love working with clients who are “going for the gold.” My clients are achieving greater personal and professional fulfillment as well as making extraordinary contributions in the world.

As your coach, I am your partner and champion, supporting you to take your life and your coaching career to the next level. Through coach mentoring, you will accelerate your learning and coaching skills development, as well as your confidence and credibility.

Dear Fran,  I just had the opportunity to watch your Essence of Mastery session on Establishing the Coaching Agreement and once again loved it. It felt like a refresher for me from the wonderful mentoring I had from your online program. As I listened once more to the areas you cover at this stage from topic to motivation to outcome and more, it reminded me how much I have learned from you and how your guidance really helped me in gaining my MCC.

You continue to stand out for me as the best MCC coach I have had the privilege of listening to. I feel so aligned to your approach – creating a sacred space for the client to do their best work to become the best version of themselves. For the client to come into their own resourcefulness and formulate their own learning.  You are so authentic, and I experience you as a deeply spiritual human being with so many gifts of love, grace and appreciation.”  – Jane Adshead-Grant, MCC

My Qualifications as a Coach Mentor

  • Twenty years’ experience as a trained ICF assessor, for PCC and MCC accreditation applicants.
  • Adler International School Faculty member, providing virtual services: Supervised sessions, Peer coaching feedback, Teleclass facilitation, and final exams for students
  • Specializing in offering Coach Mentoring programs for my private clients, customized for you and your needs.

I am one of the pioneers and leaders in the field of coaching. In 1991 I founded the Living Your Vision ® process and then founded the Academy for Coach Training in Bellevue, Washington in 1997, serving as President and CEO until 2006. We developed curriculum that provided a highly recognized spiritual approach to coaching skills training aligned with transformational principles and skills. Through the Academy, as well as in association with Antioch University, and currently with the Adler International School in Toronto, I have trained and mentored hundreds of coaches to their accreditation.

With a vision for how coaching can help to improve our quality of life, I have volunteered to help shape the profession. As an executive board member for the first international association, I helped create and establish the credentialing program for aspiring coaches and coach training schools, the skills competencies, ethics, and standards. I am recognized by the International Coach Federation as a Master Certified Coach — the highest designation available


NOTE for Mentoring Clients: As a Master Certified Coach trained by ICF as an exam Assessor, your coaching hours with me will count toward your minimum 10 hours requirement for your ACC or PCC or MCC application or three-year renewal for ACC’s.
