Providing the supervision support team coaches need

The times are changing for executive coaches. They’re increasingly being invited to work with senior management in team coaching assignments. The coaches, who might usually work on a one-to-one basis, now find themselves facing challenging (and at times ‘messy’) situations with teams in complex, global organisations. Even if they have specific team coaching training, the systemic material they are dealing with can be overwhelming or difficult to untangle.

The question this raises for coaching supervisors is: How can we provide the depth and quality of supervision that will support team coaches as they navigate this complex new landscape?

In collaboration with the Coaching Supervision Academy (CSA) for the third consecutive year, we’ll be offering a development programme for qualified, practising coach supervisors in which we will be exploring the issues involved in the supervision of team coaches. The programme, which runs between June and November 2018, consists of two x 2-day workshops in a Central London venue, plus two online webinars.

The programme will benefit coach supervisors in several ways. Together, we will:

• Deepen our understanding of the complex elements of team coaching supervision

• Develop our knowledge and skill of applying a range of supervision models and theories to the team coaching context

• Explore and practise how we engage with others, and how we facilitate in group settings, which will inform how we supervise team coaches

Find out more about the programme here.

We’re holding two preliminary webinars on 20 March and 17 April 2018, where you will have the opportunity to explore some of the issues that arise in your supervision of team coaches. Our aim here is to help you decide if this programme is for you and to contribute to the co-creation of the programme. If you would like to attend the preliminary webinar or book on the programme, please contact me here.
