Supervision on a 1-1 or group basis is a formal opportunity for coaches to confidentially reflect on their practice to gain insight, support and direction for themselves and thereby enabling them to better work in the service of their clients.
Supervision has 3 functions. The development function is concerned with building the capacity and skill of the coach. The resourcing function allows the coach to attend to the emotional aspects of their work. The qualitative function is about the quality of work, including ethical standards.
Supervision is considered best-practice for coaches. Evidence of supervision is required by coaching professional bodies for accreditation and increasingly corporate clients and procurement specialists are making evidence of regular supervision part of their quality assurance process.
Isolde has a diploma in Coaching Supervision and is Coach Supervisor to delegates of the Diploma in Business and Executive Coaching in UCD Smurfit Business School.
