Coaching supervision is not about managing, directing, or telling coaches how to coach. Rather, it is about empowering the coach to develop a “Super Vision” of how their work is going with their clients. This is achieved by a coach and qualified coach supervisor working in partnership to create a safe, reflective space where true exploration can occur.
By participating in coaching supervision, coaches can enhance their reflective practices, making them more effective coaches by increasing self-awareness which leads to an increase in confidence, objectivity, resourcefulness, and capability.
Supervision explores many aspects including:
- Exploring specific challenges with clients
- Exploring professional and ethical practice challenges
- Deepening use and understanding of tools, models, and theories
- Creating awareness around blind spots
- Revealing parallel processes and other psychological interferences
- Supporting the well-being of the coach
- Systemic exploration of issues and challenges
The three main coaching professional bodies (ICF, EMCC, and AC) recognize supervision and reflective practice as essential aspects of coaching. All three recommend or mandate supervision for their members.
