“I worked with Giuseppe from January to July 2022 on my MCC submission. I chose Giuseppe to be my mentor coach as he had trained me some years previously, and I was still using what he had taught me then in my daily coaching practice, so I knew I would get valuable learning. Giuseppe made it clear from the outset that I would be expected to apply myself to the process, and it was essential that I knew it was going to require input and effort from me. While a lot of work was involved, I enjoyed the process immensely. Giuseppe supported me throughout, and I knew he was invested in my success.
- A greater understanding of the ICF competencies at the MCC and PCC levels. I train students to the PCC level and have taken additional points of learning into the training I deliver. This learning has been invaluable.
- A sense of greater confidence in my coaching. I know when I am hitting the competencies and when I have missed one.
- An awareness of where my blind spots are and where I have developed bad habits.
- An understanding of why some shortcuts or approaches don’t work.
I recommend Giuseppe to anyone looking for a mentor. His teaching is direct and organized. Giuseppe, with clarity, showed me where I was falling short (what to stop doing) and where I was doing well (what I should continue to do). I learned much more than how to get through the MCC application process. I learned how to be the best coach I could be.”

“Dopo la certificazione PCC ho cercato un percorso di mentoring che mi permettesse di acquisire competenze specifiche e approfondite con una guida sicura come Giuseppe Totino. Ho chiesto informazioni e devo dire che sono rimasta particolarmente colpita dalla sua competenza. Giuseppe si è rivelato un mentore eccezionale. Le lezioni sono semplici ma ricche di informazioni tecniche e specialistiche. Attraverso l'alternanza tra conoscenze teoriche e simulazioni pratiche riesce a coinvolgere il discente. Nel mio caso specifico, mi ha fatto amare diversamente il coaching, in un modo che mi ha fatto inevitabilmente mettere in discussione, a vantaggio del coachee, vero protagonista oltre il coach e oltre il mentore.
Il mio percorso è durato 1 anno, dal momento in cui ho contattato Giuseppe al momento di rilascio della credenziale MCC.
Ci sono stati momenti in cui il mio malumore ha raggiunto l'apice. Volevo fare di testa mia, ero convinta di far bene. Ero lontana dal traguardo e la presunzione di saper fare faceva resistenza. Ma Giuseppe è irremovibile per fortuna, nel nome di cos'è il coaching. Sicuramente è un percorso per chi vuole far bene, senza fretta e senza scorciatoie o inutili tentativi d esame.
Sono davvero soddisfatta di aver fatto questo percorso e lo consiglio a chiunque voglia approfondire le proprie conoscenze affidandosi ad un maestro professionista, competente ma soprattutto una persona gentile, semplice ed educata.”
— Coach Rossella from Italy. (LinkedIn) attended a 1-on-1 Program in 2022
“I appreciated the accuracy of the feedback from Giuseppe as a mentor, the empathic support in the learning phase, and the help in transferring me the highest vision of the coaching profession. Giuseppe also accepted my challenges by receiving them well and welcoming me. My coaching style has refined thanks to him. He has led me to begin my long journey of research into the art of being a coach.”
— Coach Marzia from Italy (LinkedIn) attended a 1-on-1 Program in 2022
“Giuseppe supported me in paying attention to three specific areas required for jumping from PCC to MCC: Coaching Mindset, Listening Actively, and Partnering.
He shared his deep understanding of the ICF competencies and helped me appreciate that achieving MCC is not just about improving the coaching techniques. The MCC coach must improvise, partner, tune and calibrate to dance with different clients.”
— Coach Kaveh from U.K. (LinkedIn) attended a 1-on-1 Program in 2021
“His style and approach to mentor coaching is engaging. Whenever we were looking at the assessment and the transcripts' details, it was never about the paper or those details. He kept looking at me, challenging me, engaging me in the process. I felt he cared about me. Even though what he shared with me was tough, he cared!”
— Coach Bryan from USA (LinkedIn) attended a 1-on-1 Program in 2018
“There is a kind of purity about him when he is with you. He is totally focused on you and on what you are doing. But there is this human being here, and that touches you, so you feel that there is a person in the room that is interested in you and really wants the best for you.”
— Coach Richard from U.K. (LinkedIn) attended a Group Program in 2019
