What is Coaching Supervision?
You know how important it is for your team(s) to tackle complex problems and create meaningful impact for your organisation. But how do you make sure your coaches are continuously growing and developing in their roles? Well, there’s a powerful solution you might not have considered yet: coaching supervision!
Coaching supervision is a structured and supportive process that helps coaches reflect on their practice, explore new perspectives, and receive feedback on their coaching skills. And the best part? It can help coaches refine their coaching approach, checking to see if they are holding the most useful stance for the client, and increase their impact, which ultimately benefits your organisation.
Why does it matter, I hear you ask?
Well, coaching as a profession is unregulated, which means anyone can call themselves a coach. Scary, right? That’s why supervision is essential. It’s a powerful way to support and empower your coaches, to ensure they’re delivering the best possible outcomes for your organisation while improving professional standards.
Not only that, but coaching supervision can be embedded as part of your organisation’s overall coaching strategy to help:
- Inspect ethical standards
- Sharpen innovative edge
- Align to leadership expectations
- Impartially review coaching impact on the system
- Improve professional standards
Plus, taking a coaching approach to change is a better way to facilitate and lead change. And with supervision in the mix, you can rest easy knowing that it’s ethical, responsible, and high quality. Find out more about how coaching supervision helps here.
According to the International Coach Federation (ICF), coaching supervision is “an important element of a coach’s professional development, learning and growth.” It’s a collaborative learning practice that benefits both coaches and clients through reflective dialogue. Think of it like a secret ingredient in the coaching toolkit that helps coaches develop their approach and ensure they’re being effective.
“Supervision is an essential toolkit for Coaches. Supervision provides the support and growth needed for coaches to continually learn, deal with the situations in front of them, and to gain other expert opinions about what course of action can be taken next.”Simon Powers – Bryter Work CEO
