Coach Supervision with Gill Graves
The practice of regular and professional supervision has long been embedded in many of the people professions including social work and counselling. By contrast supervision is only recently becoming common place in the coaching profession.
The headline findings from a recent CIPD survey were unequivocal – coaches should have regular supervision. The survey highlighted that even the most experienced coaches need help to constantly re-examine their practice, to continue to develop their skills and self-awareness and to avoid being drawn into their clients’ systems. For organisations supervision can be a way of ensuring quality by opening up practice to peer scrutiny and by making sure that coaches are regularly attending to their personal and professional development. For the coaching profession the establishment of coaching supervision can help to increase the credibility and image of the coaching industry.
Gill’s coaching supervision covers a broad range of areas including:
- Better understanding of the coach’s clients and their organisational context.
- Exploring the coaching relationships.
- Developing the way of improving the coaching and coaching relationships.
- Contributing to the continuing professional development of the coach.
- Attending to the live relationship between the coach and supervisor and how this might be paralleling the dynamics from the coaching sessions.
- Ensuring the coach is supported to manage the coaching work and isn’t dealing with issues beyond their personal capability.
