What is SuperVision?

Supervision provides an opportunity to develop deeper understanding of what you do as a coach.

It encourages different patterns of thinking which will challenge your tried and tested habits. It will enable the gaining of confidence to work with many different issues and to know that you are working effectively. Supervision will enable sole practitioners to develop a connection with others in the same field of work.

By working in a developmental and learning environment confidence can be built around current skills, which will enable you to offer many solutions and interventions keeping your practise up to date and growing in expertise

 

Our clients want results and want their coaches to help them to find the best way forward.

 

Group Aims

The aim of this group is to offer coaches the opportunity to look at their coaching practice, share successes and concerns and develop an understanding of the relationship between coach and client. To engage in discussion of live issues which are effecting coaches, so that a way forward can be generated.

 

Why supervision?

Supervision is a useful tool for the development and learning of coaches who would like to take their coaching skills and self-understanding to a deeper level.

Often what we say we do and what we actually do are not the same, this group will endeavour to connect both theory and practice, which will create congruence in the coaching environment.

Through this group you will have the opportunity to take your skills to the next level of practice and experience. It will be facilitated, in a gentle, positive yet sometimes challenging way. With a mixture of case studies, theory, personal coaching and change work.

 

How we will work as a group

  • Presentation of case studies with each member of the group having opportunities to present cases as well as to offer understanding and solutions.

  • Discussion of cases which are proving challenging, identification of what has not worked so far and suggestions for new strategies to be tried.

  • Discussions about issues that are being experienced by attendees.

  • Co-coaching with other members of the group and gaining direct feedback

Questions for discussion will include:

  • Who are you as a coach?

  • What kind of supervision is useful for a coach

  • What is the nature of the relationship between you and your client?

  • Who are the clients you connect with best?

  • Who are the clients with whom connection is less easy?

  • What are the areas you feel less comfortable coaching?

  • How can you terminate a client relationship that is not working well?

What other participants have gained

  • We discussed the term 'supervision' at the first meeting, and I can see now that the title 'Supervision' reflects the thoughts that the group as a whole provides, “super vision” through sharing thoughts and looking at coaching from many different angles - this group isn't to do with being supervised in the traditional sense of the word.”

  • “I have learnt so much from listening to how other coaches approach situations. The opportunity to question and talk about concerns with someone who is very experienced and gaining feedback on my practice has been challenging and invaluable”

  • “Presenting a case study made me look at my coaching methods, and question whether there were other 'angles'/methods I could have used. Feedback from the group, in a non-judgmental, safe, secure, environment, helped me look at ways of improving, and I was able to take on board what I felt would be most useful and comfortable to me.

  • I am learning so much from other participants. I enjoy being in this supportive environment, with the ability to share concerns and raise questions, very important to me as I can be a perfectionist and feel I 'should' know everything!

  • I feel that we are all respected for who we are, and what we offer to coaching as individuals.
