What is Coaching Supervision?
Coaching supervision is a formal and protected time for facilitating in-depth reflection for coaches to discuss their work with someone who is experienced as a Coach.
Supervision offers a confidential framework within a collaborative working relationship in which the practice, tasks, process and challenges of the development of the coach and the actual coaching work can be explored.
The primary aim of supervision is to enable the coach to gain an ethical competency, confidence and creativity so as to ensure the best possible service to the coaching client. Supervision is not a ‘policing’ role, but rather a trusting and collegiate professional relationship.
