We don’t just care about the credential, we care about your success as a coach!

While Coach Training Schools would charge you $6,000 and require you to spend another $1,800 on your own coach to get certified, I suspect you have other ideas for where you’d rather invest the $6,000 you will save with my program.

My name is Corey Stanford, and I’m a Master Certified Coach and the President of Scaling Leaders LLC. I’ve coached hundreds of leaders and mentored dozens of coaches over the years. Unlike most Registered Mentor Coaches, I’m also a trained ICF-Assessor, which means I know exactly what ICF is looking for when deciding to whom to award a credential.

What Our Graduates Say

I approached Corey for mentor-coaching support in preparing for and passing the ICF-ACC accreditation program late last year. I am now ACC-accredited. I truly believe Corey’s mentoring has helped me not just hit that goal, but it also helped develop my coaching skills very powerfully. That’s because he gave specific, constructive feedback, with clear examples that helped me see how I can improve my coaching presence. He is positive, approachable, and knows how to deliver strong feedback effectively. Every session with Corey has been powerful. I look forward to future opportunities to work with Corey and elevate my coaching game even more. I totally recommend Corey as a mentor coach! – Meera Remani, ACC

Corey was my mentor coach during my ICF Accreditation. There were many things that made him stand out as a mentor. He has the unique ability to see and highlight your strengths and abilities in a credible and sincere manner. In addition, providing constructive feedback is challenging to say the least. Corey is one of few people I know who can do it in such a way that it does not diminish your view of yourself as a coach and inspires you to improve. He creates a safe secure space to allow for this. While being mentored by him, it felt like my coaching improved exponentially. I would highly recommend him as a mentor to anyone seeking to improve their coaching skills and to support during the accreditation process. – Shivani Buchner, ACC
