Internal Coach Supervision
You are coaching as part of your role and working internally and/or cross-culturally.
You know that Professional Development is necessary and desired.
You sometimes find professional boundaries are crossed and you struggle.
As many managers and leaders are required to ‘coach’ or ‘mentor’ their staff, the need for effective and skilled supervision has never been greater. Supervision differs from coaching in that it has a broader, deeper and less defined remit.
Why leaders as coach are requesting supervision:
- It is usually longer term and supports the development of the coach in service of their client.
- The focus is more on the coach/client dynamics and the complex relationships across the organisation.
- It ensures safety for members of staff in supervision, and indeed for the whole organisation.
- For coaches, (department heads, managers and leaders) coaching supervision is an essential part of their continuous professional development.
The benefits for organisations:
- It’s the key to effective quality assurance.
- It reduces the risks that can be inherent in coaching and draws learning from the coaching conversations
- It can help to increase the return on an investment in coaching
- It can provide evidence of ROI
