As Certified Coaching Supervisors we offer both one-on-one coaching supervision and ongoing groups.
Coaching supervision is distinctly different from our work as trainers and mentors. Supervision is a peer-to-peer, collaborative and dynamic process that we have found to be uniquely valuable to the professional development of coaches.
Coaching Supervision gives us an opportunity to support coaches in a collaborative conversation that allows exploration of a broad spectrum of topics including;
• Analysis of coaching case studies to better understand options for coaching strategies to improve client outcomes.
• Reflection on the coaches’ internal thought processes and assumptions.
• Revealing blind spots.
• Exploring ethical issues and contracting challenges.
• Brainstorming solutions to complex and challenging client situations.
• Appreciating and celebrating the accomplishments of the coach.
• Providing accountability and a sounding board for ideas.
The European Mentoring & Coaching Council (EMCC) defines coaching supervision as:
The interaction that occurs when a coach brings their coaching work experiences to a supervisor in order to be supported and to engage in reflective dialogue and collaborative learning for the development and benefit of the coach, their clients, and their organizations.
According to the International Coach Federation;
Coaching Supervision focuses on the development of the coach’s capacity through offering a richer and broader opportunity for support and development. Coaching supervision creates a safe environment for the coach to share their successes and failures in becoming masterful in the way they work with their clients.
Coaching supervision differs from coaching and mentoring. Coaching is designed to help clients achieve their objectives through self-awareness, goal setting, and action planning. Mentor Coaching for a coach credential is focused on developing the core competencies and skills required for coaching. Coaching supervision includes creating a safe space for the coach and supervisor to reflect on the overall system to support the coach’s growth and improved client outcomes.
We have been training and mentoring coaches for 17 years and are now certified as Coach Supervisors after completing the Coaching Supervision Certification Program with Dr. Damian Goldvarg, MCC.
Each hour of Coaching Supervision is awarded 1 CCEU in the core competencies, and can be used to satisfy up to 10 hours of the required 40 hours to renew a credential with the International Coach Federation.

Who is a Coaching Supervision group for?
This group is for you if you are interested in:
- expanding your self awareness and self reflection as a coach
- receiving professional feedback, support and collaboration with other coaches
- learning from your coaching colleagues and group supervisors
How are the sessions organized?
Each group is scheduled for six 90-minute sessions (1 x per month) for up to 8 participants.
During each session;
the first 10 minutes includes introductions, outline of the call, setting the tone of the session and going over class agreements.
3 coaches will be given the opportunity to share a “case.” Usually this is a coaching situation that they have a question (s) they would like to explore.
Once the case is shared, all group members are given the opportunity to participate in the form of questioning or feedback within a structure facilitated by the group Supervisors. This is an interactive process that invites everyone’s participation in a safe and supportive setting.
The final 10 minutes includes sharing of learning.
The group meets via a Zoom link.

What is the best way to prepare for Group Coaching Supervision
Some questions to reflect on prior to Supervision:
What am I comfortable bringing to Supervision?
What might I be willing to bring to the Supervision conversation, even though it may feel uncomfortable?
What would I like from my Supervisor and members of the group in terms of feedback and support?
Is there anything I might be hiding from myself or my Supervisor?
Where is my opportunity for growth as a coach?
Once you join the group we will give you additional resources for identifying a case or a situation to bring to the group. We are also happy to have a conversation with you to answer any questions you may have about the process.
On Being a Supervisee by Michael Carroll and Maria C. Gilbert, offers many strategies for preparing for the Supervision process.
