Recent research (Hodge, 2014) endorses and verifies the value and relevance that supervision offers to help keep coaches fit for practice. The process of reflecting on practice on a one-to-one basis has been found to be extremely useful and highly valued. It is often a vital ingredient in the coach’s professional well-being and effectiveness.
In this participative session, you will be invited to explore some of the following questions:
- What does supervision really involve?
- What are the functions and purpose of supervision?
- What part do supervisors and coaches each play in making this an effective learning relationship?
- How do both participants in this dyad attend to the developmental and restorative purpose and needs of the coach?
We will consider how the coach can make the most of the process through preparation and participation so that the they gain greater self-awareness and insights, enabling them to be at their best with their clients.
In this webinar, participants will learn more about what supervision involves, why it matters and how it contributes to professional practice. You will be invited to consider how supervision may best support coaches at all levels and stages of professional and personal development.
Who should attend?
This webinar will be of interest to coaches and supervisors who are keen to explore how to make the most of their supervision, both personally and professionally. Equally, HR and L&D professionals may find this of interest if they are involved in setting up coaching services and want to provide relevant support to their internal and/or external coaches.
The fee for the webinar is £25 + VAT (10% discount for Henley alumni; free for Coaching Centre members).
