Globally, Coaching Supervision is becoming a recognized practice for coaches at every stage in their coaching practice to improve their personal mastery through continuous development; both personally in terms of deepening their coaching presence and awareness, and professionally in terms of competencies, ethics and standards. One of the growing trends internationally for such development is engaging in the practice of ‘coaching supervision’; similar in concept to the supervision which supports many behavioral science professions.

Coaching Supervision Defined
Coaching Supervision is described as engaging in reflective practice in order to further develop personal efficacy. It is an opportunity for coaches and facilitators to, in partnership, reflect, increase awareness of what their patterns are, clarify and explore the Coach’s approach, process, energy, beliefs and in turn, the impact that these elements have on their coaching, in service of the client. The practice of Coaching Supervision focuses solely on you the Coach and provides you with many benefits including but not limited to expansion of your coaching competencies, ethics and standards, identification of personal development edges, presence, confidence and an increase in your overall effectiveness as Coach.
