in support of internal coaching

If you have, or are building, an internal coaching capability, you’ll have internal coaches, but

  • where do those coaches go for a coach when your practice is internal?
  • how might you provide mentor coaching?
  • how are you developing and widening your coaches experience and practice?

Good coaches have coaches, so idcoach specialise in coaching for internal coaches.

for individuals

We work with people one to one;  people seeking to understand their truth and to find freedom, happiness, hope, fulfilment, success or peace. Sometimes they are seeking meaning – who are they and what will their legacy be?  Sometimes they are seeking a new direction and sometimes they simply feel stuck, overwhelmed, anxious or are lacking in confidence.

“Supervision is a place where a living profession breathes and learns….supervision can be a very important part of taking care of oneself, staying open to new learning, and an indispensable part of the coach’s ongoing self-development, self-awareness and commitment to learning”

Hawkins & Shohet

for the individual coach…

idcoach can offer 1-2-1 supervision for you as a practising coach. Supervision might typically explore…

  • the coach and their practice with challenge, support and feedback from the supervisor in support of their client work
  • the development of the coach’s practice with new perspectives, input and exploration
  • the client and the (organisational and other) systems in which they operate
  • the coach and the (organisational and other) systems in which they operate
  • the impact of those systems on the client, the coach and their relationship
  • the supervisor’s own process within the sessions
  • the supervisor’s relationship with the coach and their practice; the parallel process of the supervision relationship and how that might inform the coach client relationship
  • exploration and illumination of the conscious and unconscious relationship ‘postures’ the coach might take with their clients
  • ethical dilemmas and assurance

idcoach can also offer group supervision for you as a practising coach. Groups typically have four to six coaches in them. Group supervision might typically explore…

  • all of the above, but with the added value of shared experience and input from other coaches in the group
  • the system of your work using other coaches in the group to represent parts of that system in a 3D map or Constellation

Steve at idcoach runs supervision groups each month.

Coaching testimonial

“I have been fortunate to have been coached by Steve and also been on the receiving end of his wisdom as I developed myself as a coach through the Partnership’s coaching programme, which Steve was instrumental in designing and leading. Steve has an enormous amount of experience to pull on. He uses an amazing variety of coaching techniques and models but it’s his ability to ask the most searching and challenging questions getting to the heart of an issue but in a way that is immensely supportive that enables a coachee to make huge breakthroughs. I can’t recommend him highly enough.”

Helen Hyde
Personnel Director
