COACHING SUPERVISION FRAMEWORK – the technical/theoretical side of supervision
There are a few core principles that inform my coaching supervision practice:
- Collaboration illuminates learning – we co-create a reflective space for stepping into real conversation – a dialogue where thinking is renewed, practices are reviewed, insight is activated and the door is opened for the best of you to emerge.
- The quality of the relationship we create will govern the quality of the work we do together (as with coaching)
- Supervision is ultimately about seeking the authentic you – your true presence
- “Who You Are is How You Coach” (Edna Murdoch)
My approach to the supervision process is shaped by my conviction that you already have within you everything you need to flourish professionally and personally. My focus is on supporting you through a dialogue of reflective inquiry, to gain deeper awareness of yourself and your coaching practices. Together we co-create a learning space where we can safely explore client challenges, ethical dilemmas, application of tools and techniques and attend to your emotional and professional wellbeing as coach. All with the clear intention of supporting best practice and outcomes for your coaching clients.
We will achieve the outcomes by…
- Balancing challenges and supportive feedback. I take the role of gentle provocateur.
- Working with your agenda. You are responsible for driving your own process. You are your own agent of change.
- Focusing on developing and facilitating your own problem solving and awareness raising, growing your self-supervision capability.
- Facilitating movement from awareness to action, creating development feedback loops to continually integrate and replicate your process.
- Advocating and modelling reflective practices, emotional regulation, self-awareness, systemic awareness
- Paying close attention to ongoing review and evaluation of the efficacy and impact of coaching supervision.
