Coaching supervision is distinctly different from my work as a trainer and mentor.
Supervision is a peer-to-peer, collaborative and dynamic process that is uniquely valuable to the professional development of coaches.
If you have questions about coaching supervision, or would like to try a complimentary supervision session, I would love to talk to you!
Coach Supervision offers support to coaches in a collaborative conversation that allows exploration of a broad spectrum of topics including;
- Analysis of coaching case studies to better understand options for coaching strategies to improve client outcomes.
- Reflection on the coaches’ internal thought processes and assumptions.
- Revealing blind spots.
- Exploring ethical issues and contracting challenges.
- Brainstorming solutions to complex and challenging client situations.
- Appreciating and celebrating the accomplishments of the coach.
- Providing accountability and a sounding board for ideas.
The European Mentoring & Coaching Council (EMCC) defines coaching supervision as:
The interaction that occurs when a coach brings their coaching work experiences to a supervisor in order to be supported and to engage in reflective dialogue and collaborative learning for the development and benefit of the coach, their clients, and their organizations
According to the International Coach Federation;
Coaching Supervision focuses on the development of the coach’s capacity through offering a richer and broader opportunity for support and development. Coaching supervision creates a safe environment for the coach to share their successes and failures in becoming masterful in the way they work with their clients.”
Coaching supervision differs from coaching and mentoring. Coaching is designed to help clients achieve their objectives through self-awareness, goal setting, and action planning. Mentor Coaching for a coach credential is focused on developing the core competencies and skills required for coaching. Coaching supervision includes creating a safe space for the coach and supervisor to reflect on the overall system to support the coach’s growth and improved client outcomes.
I have been training and mentoring coaches for 17 years and I am now certified as a Coach Supervisor after completing the Coaching Supervision Certification Program with Dr. Damian Goldvarg, MCC.
Each hour of Coaching Supervision is awarded 1 CCEU in the core competencies, and can be used to satisfy up to 10 hours of the required 40 hours to renew a credential with the International Coach Federation.
