Based on recent research (Hodge 2014), coaching supervision is here to stay. While some coaches may still question the usefulness and relevance, reflecting on practice on a one-to-one basis has been found to be extremely useful and highly valued. It is often a vital ingredient in the coach’s professional wellbeing and effectiveness.
Despite this there is still a level of misunderstanding, even resistance in the market place, so what is coaching supervision and what does it really involve? what are its functions and purpose? Is it solely a one-to-one dialogue with a qualified other? what are the different types of coaching supervision? What are some of its uses and benefits? and who is it for? What other approaches are effective that enable coaches to practice safely, ethically and professionally? What part does supervision play in keeping coaches “fit for purpose”, especially given the demands and challenges of coaching, particularly in an organizational context with the complexities of multiple-stakeholders and the constantly changing economic, political and market conditions across the globe.
In this webinar, participants will learn more about what supervision involves, why it matters and how it contributes to professional practice. This participative session will aim to engage you in the question as a way to explore how supervision may best support coaches at all levels and stages of professional and personal development.
