Clare and Steve explore tripartite meetings and the involvement of other third parties in coaching assignments. They explore how this shows up in supervision.
Clare and Steve explore mentor coaching. What is it and how does it work? Recordings, transcripts, competency based feedback, one to one or in groups.
Steve and Clare discuss what we are responsible for as coaches and what they see come to supervision which stretches this. They suggest useful might be a better way to be than helpful. They also tell stories that bring to life common mis-directed responsibilities coaches bring to supervision which, in turn, leads to a discussion about being responsible for our gut and intuition – the flip side of which might be not taking too much responsibility for not following them always. A truly useful exploration of a topic relevant to all coaches and supervisors.
Clare and Steve explore what might be stopping coaches from coming to supervision. They explore time and cost; but is supervision just an expense or is it about understanding what value can be gained? How do we decide to invest in ourselves and do we make the same choices when attending a course or webinar as we do when opting in or out of supervision?
Clare and Steve discuss the differences and similarities between coaching and supervision. They explore the roles and the knowledge supervisor and coach take to their practice using the metaphor of a cairn of stones. They discuss the relationship between coach and supervisor and the place for reflexivity in the learning journey.
Clare and Steve explore whether it is ok to bring commercial or business related questions to supervision. As a coach, can I talk about the balance of my work or about my business set up in supervision? Can I discuss the challenge of turning my coaching into a profitable business, or talk about my marketing with my supervisor? Should I bring to supervision choices that I make to win business, even if I know that they might not be entirely ethical? Where is the boundary?
In episode 9, Clare and Steve explore how we as coaches might get stuck in familiar ‘ruts’. Do we coach similar clients in similar locations, in similar ways? What stops us experimenting? What part does our personal history and consequent alignment to risk taking or familiarity play? When you think about doing something new or unfamiliar, do you begin by asking what might be lost … or what might be gained? Supervision can help us to flourish and not be held back by learned patterns and old identities.
