I trained as a Coaching Supervisor with Barefoot Coaching in 2020.
Coaches can use a Supervision session in many different ways and for many varied reasons, here's some examples:
- Review of your current workload – how are you coaching?
- Anything you want advice with? Any reoccurring patterns? Do you need to share a case study with me to get a new perspective?
- Hot Spots: Have you found yourself affected or influenced in anyway by the content or actions of your client? Bring this to attention with your Supervisor.
- Areas for development: Do you find yourself sitting comfortably bringing out the same coaching questions, tools and techniques? Make sure you don’t become stagnant or ‘one size fits all approach’. Look at what you do and bring this with you to the session to make sure you keep developing.
- Nothing is too small: Sometimes coaches feel unless they have a glaringly obvious problem then they don’t require Supervision. Often the development comes from the subtleties of just reflecting and sharing your Coaching. A Coaching Supervisor will pick up on patterns, limiting beliefs and areas for development by listening to you share your current practise, agendas or clients.
- Anything else: Do you have a niggling thought or something in the back of your mind? Do you need to off load any pressures? Anything that stops you being a great coach or being able to give clarity and objectivity or develop as a coach is relevant to Supervision. Don’t be shy of bringing anything to the table.
- Best Practice and Ethical Issues: Do you need clarification about boundaries or codes of practice?
