Developing and sustaining coaches in their practice
What is Coach Supervision?
Coaches work on their own, so it is really important for coaches to have supervision. It provides a confidential opportunity for coaches to examine their practice, hold themselves accountable to a fellow professional, learn more about their skills and gain confidence in their work.
How does it work?
We agree how often to meet, when and where, and commit to keeping those dates as a priority. Coaches send me a log of their work and a reflection note to help us both prepare for the meeting. In our two hour meetings we have the chance to explore work from a variety of angles. At the meeting coaches present their work and we discuss whatever is going to be most helpful to them in their work. I broadly follow the 7 eyed supervisor model developed by Hawkins and Shohet.
Who is it for?
Any coach who is taking their work seriously and wants to meet with an independent supervisor.
Thank you for our supervision sessions. We did some good work together and I appreciate your challenges and support.An independent consultant and executive coach
Take stock of where you are as a team and explore the dynamics to discover your motivation and commitment to working productively together. I will help you agree how to hold yourselves accountable to each other.
Pausing even for an hour can have huge benefits. It can help you see the wood for the trees, put things back into perspective, bookend the week, build in a rhythm, help you re:set, see things afresh. For you, and definitely for the benefit of others around you.
