Coaching Supervision

Registration Fee: $75

The purpose of Coaching Supervision is to provide for continuous professional development through reflection and dialogue in a safe, supportive, and confidential space. During the Supervision session, the participating coaches will be given the opportunity to share case studies, questions, successes, and challenges from their work with their clients. This course is a 90-minute graduate-style seminar for eight students under the supervision of a Mentor Coach.

Overall, the focus of each session is on continuous learning, growth, and development of the coach, which would result ultimately in more advanced competence. The participants will engage and interact through group discussion and the sharing of ideas and potential resources. Interactive discussions may include:

  • Case studies of a coach’s work with a particular client and/or involving a specific session
  • Patterns and themes that are emerging as success stories or are challenging a coach’s effectiveness
  • Observations and experiences shared from “real world” coaching relationships

All participants are encouraged and expected to participate in the discussion.

Each 90-minute session is a stand-alone offering and requires registration for that session.

Course Rationale

As coaches begin their journey through coaching, they often encounter unfamiliar situations and challenges. Through supervision, coaches have a safe space to explore how to provide the highest quality service for their clients—especially as questions arise in regards to skills, tools, red flags, and ethics. By thinking through these questions with others, including a more experienced mentor coach, newer coaches can develop additional expertise and confidence that will help them to care for their clients and themselves. In addition, supervision will help coaches stay aware and engaged with the evolving profession of coaching and will help them to reflect on their own habits (effective and ineffective) as they continue to develop their skill.

Course/Learner Objectives

As a result of this course, participants will:

  • Deepen their coaching skills through participation in discussion of real-life coaching situations
  • Understand ethical challenges and engage in methodology to address these challenges

  • Develop in-the-moment coaching skill that can be applied across multiple contexts
