Stay Sharp

As coaches, or other professionals (CEOs, NGO directors, school directors, therapists, counselors, etc.) we might get isolated and lack consistent reflection to remain sharp.

In individual coaching supervision or group supervision, we engage in a deep, reflective dialogue and partnership to learn. It is a safe and energizing space to reflect on who we are as a professional, gain fresh perspectives on how we can be and give our best.

As a result, we experience encouragement, gain confidence and clarity to serve our clients more powerfully from who we are.

The effectiveness and depth of impact you have as a coach is greatly determined by your own reflective practice and developmental process as a professional. In turn you are able to deepen your clients’ reflection and progress towards what matters most to them. Without reflective practice, you plateau or regress, weakening the impact you ought to have. 

After all, who you are is how you coach, or lead, or live!

Coaching Supervision provides a dynamic, relational space to be your best and serve your clients with competence and confidence. It’s one of the most essential on-going developmental elements for any professional. More training and techniques are of course helpful. Yet, nothing can replace your reflective practice. The tools and techniques we have learned are only useful to the extent we have wisdom to apply them when they are needed and to discern when they are not. That requires you to become comfortable with not knowing and trusting that the needed wisdom and ‘solution’ emerges from a deep partnership with your clients. Supervision facilitates your on-going development as a practitioner.

Some main issues that typically are brought to Coaching Supervision are:

  • Contractual and ethical dilemmas
  • Challenges you encounter with clients and reflecting on those cases
  • Your own growth and development and areas of stretch
  • Your well-being: managing overwhelm, self-care and ethics
  • Uncover blind spots

The ICF recently updated the core competencies model and added a new category related to the ‘being of the coach’, emphasizing the importance of a coach ‘embodying a coaching mindset’. 7 of the 8 sub-points relate directly to the coach’s work on themselves!

  • engages in ongoing learning and development as a coach
  • develops an ongoing reflective practice to enhance one’s coaching
  • remains aware of and open to the influence of context and culture on self and others
  • uses awareness of self and one’s intuition to benefit clients
  • develops and maintains the ability to regulate one’s emotions
  • mentally and emotionally prepares for sessions
  • seeks help from outside sources when necessary

Coaching Supervision strengthens your coaching mindset and reflective practice!

In Individual Supervision you get the full hour to yourself!

You bring one or more cases with clients or challenges you face that impact you as a human and professional and the quality of your work. Your supervisor ensures and effective dialogue from which you gain clarity to make changes and move forward with more clarity.

Typically, professional coaches work a minimum of four sessions per year with their supervisor.

 

In Group Supervision you gain additional perspective and learning from the generated learning with the group.

One or two participants bring a case of challenge. The supervisor then facilitates observations, sharing, learning, questions from the group. The presenting coach decides and response to what other support they want from the group and then determines how to move forward.

Group size is limited to six coaches. Meetings occur monthly, eight times per year or determined by the group.

You have the option to create a group with fellow practitioners and hire me to supervise. This can be very effective for internal coaches serving in the same organization.

  • Individual Supervision: € 250.- per session
  • Group Supervision: the cost is determined by the group’s context, focus and frequency

Both individual and group supervision hours can be applied to ICF credential renewal. Up to 10 hours of coaching supervision can be applied to each 3-year cycle of renewal.

You will receive a letter of confirmation acknowledging these hours which you can submit with your renewal application.
