Forum on Coach Supervision

Forum on Coach Supervision

July 4-5, 2015 Royal Roads University

Last fall, ICF Vancouver Island Board of Directors approved an international forum on Coach Supervision as a Chapter event,, to be held July 4-5th at Royal Roads University! This blurb gives you what we know now. Stay tuned for more details as they become available! An Invitation To Participate In A Global Conversation: The International Coach Federation – Vancouver Island Chapter, is pleased to host a global forum on an emerging trend in the field of coaching called “Coaching Supervision”. Globally, it 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. We are very excited to host this forum here on Vancouver Island, drawing international attention and global participation. What is Coaching Supervision? 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. Who Are We Inviting To This Global Conversation on Coaching Supervision? For most of you, coaching isn’t just a profession, it’s a calling. Passionate about your clients and the results they produce you are keenly aware that your own development and self-awareness runs synonymous with those you work with.
