Group Supervision for Coaches

A space of reflective practice to develop in depth emotional intelligence, presence and insights as a coach

Coaching Supervision

Supervision can be described as “The process by which a coach with the help of a supervisor, who is not working directly with the client, can attend to understanding better both the client system and themselves as part of the client-coach system and transform their work.” Hawkins and Smith (2006).

We believe that having coaching supervision is a fundamental aspect of your continuing personal and professional development as a coach and this is the reason it forms an integral part of our programmes. Supervision continues to provide you with a confidential, supportive, and disciplined space in which you can reflect on particular coachee situations, relationships, and your development as a coach.

About this Programme

The aim of this programme is to provide professional coaches with a space of reflective practice to develop in depth emotional intelligence, presence and insights as a coach. 

This programme is therefore open to:

  • Coaches and team coaches with at least 400 hours of coaching experience that operate as consultants for organizations and individuals
  • Coaches and team coaches with at least 400 hours of coaching experience operating as part of an internal pool of coaches in an organization
  • Leaders and managers who have received at least 60 hours of formal coaching training, with at least 400 hours of coaching experience, who integrate coaching and team coaching as a regular approach to engage and develop their teams. 

What to expect

Coaching Supervision supports coaches in developing their competencies and self-awareness, in managing professional standards and ethical boundaries, and in elaborating their feelings while dealing with difficult clients and systems. 

International Coaching Psychology Review, (Volume 12, No. 1, March 2017) identified the following outcomes as benefits of supervision for coaches: 

  • Increased self-awareness
  • Greater confidence
  • Increased objectivity
  • Heightened sense of belonging
  • Reduced feelings of isolation
  • Increased resourcefulness

The programme is structured in 4 group sessions (one every 2 months). Upon request, the group sessions can be complemented by 3 optional individual supervision sessions.

Each group includes a maximum of 10 supervisee for every supervisor. 

The individual sessions can be scheduled flexibly based on the availability of the supervisor and the supervisees.
