Coaching supervision is a reflective practice for learning and development. In partnership with a supervisor, coaches examine their coaching work within evolving systems, focusing on patterns, thinking, models, and relationship dynamics. Supervision benefits the coach, their clients, and their organizations and serves as the cornerstone for the integrity and quality of coaching through:

  • Development of the coach through skill building and increased awareness and understanding of how they react to the dynamics of client interventions
  • Support for the emotional well-being of the coach as they interact with their clients and client systems affected by the stressors of a VUCA environment
  • Attention to sustaining the highest caliber of services offered by the coach, including adherence to ethical practices (ICF Code of Ethics; EMCC Code of Ethics)
