Group Supervision Experience Calls
Group Supervision Experience Calls  Group Supervision Experience Calls

The Association for Coaching provides a Group Supervision Experience service on the third Thursday of every month. The calls are held via video link or low-cost teleconference line and are facilitated by experienced AC Coaches who donate an hour of their time to support fellow AC Members. The calls last up to one hour with a maximum of five participants. AC Group Supervision Experience calls are designed to offer Members a taste of what supervision is like and what can be gained from participating in it. The calls are available to AC Members regardless of location across the world.

Through attending a call AC Members have:

  • the opportunity to experience supervision
  • access to the benefits of supervision in a group setting
  • an opportunity to connect with other AC Members
  • a setting in which client work and ethical issues can be explored
  • the chance to work with a highly experienced Supervisor who hosts the call

Participation in these calls counts towards your annual Continuous Professional Development. They are designed as a supervision taster and are not intended to replace full professional supervision. Members should engage in a long-term relationship with an appropriately trained and experienced supervisor; this is an essential requirement for AC Coach Accreditation. Further information about AC Coach Accreditation can be found by attending on the Coach Accreditation Webinars that are held regularly. Separate Coach Accreditation Support Calls are available for those members who have started the accreditation process and have questions about their individual AC Coach Accreditation application.

Group Supervision Experience with the following theme:

MANAGING STAKEHOLDERS

Often stakeholders are an important factor to our coachee's performance.
Typical aspects of stakeholders management include:

  • Alignment - of the coaching needs, the coachee’s goals and the anticipated rate of change required from the coachee
  • Inter-relationships - between the stakeholders and each stakeholder and coachee
  • Transformation - progress v perspective from the ‘invested parties’ and stakeholders
  • ROI (Return on Investment) - how can we measure the qualitative goals?

During our ACGSE host call you will have the opportunity to review aspects of stakeholder management through the issues and challenges that are brought to the call.

Group Supervision Experience with the following theme:

CONTRACTING

How do we show up as coaches in our contracting? What do we do when our clients want to get stuck into the “meat” of coaching straight away? How do we deal with the complexities of coaching in organizations where there may be many stakeholders who may not even share the same outcomes for the coaching? What happens when we fail to do so, or miss out certain aspects? Or when our ethics feel compromised. These are just some of the interesting challenges we might face as we contract and re-contract during our sessions.

We will consider what makes for “good” contracting, sharing our experiences and what best practice suggests.

Group Supervision Experience with the following theme:

VALUES IN OUR PRACTICE

Values reflect and communicate what it is that drives us, what motivates us, in other words what is important to us. Our values are at the core of who we are, they guide our choices and behaviours and influence our emotions.

We hold different values in different parts of our lives. For example, in our Continuing Professional Development/supervision work we might value reflection, learning & developing, accountability; whereas in our life at home, we might have values of stability, happiness and love.

We will consider how working with our values offers an opportunity for deeper connection to inform our work.
Find out what your values are.

Group Supervision Experience with the following theme:

CREATIVE APPROACHES IN COACHING

Creativity is generally considered a vital skill for success in the 21 st century. As coaches, we need not only to be creative in our approaches with clients, but also to foster creativity within our clients.

But what exactly is creativity? It is an elusive spark that can be difficult to define, and can be viewed in many ways, for instance as a gift bestowed on us; a skill to exercise; a technique to learn; or a choice to make.

In this supervision session, we invite you to bring your coaching client stories, questions and dilemmas where you feel creativity plays an important part.

NO SHOWS

Sometimes clients don't show up - literally or metaphorically. We will address both.

What might be going on for the client?

When do we makae it about "us" and it isn't?

We will examine what we do, and what we could do, with "no shows"

Group Supervision Experience with the following theme:

DEALING WITH HEALTH ISSUES IN COACHING

The topic of health and healing is becoming an important specialism for many coaches, although for all coaches we occasionally need to manage a health issue as part and parcel of any kind of coaching work.

Where a client’s health is adversely affecting their ability to meet their goals, how do we address it? What options do we have and what are the danger signs to watch for? This supervision session invites you to bring any client case story, question or dilemma where health (or lack of it) is a key factor. This could include questions and issues involving mental health, as well as any concerns or questions you have regarding your own health and how it may be affecting your ability to coach.

Group Supervision Experience with the following theme:

BEING STUCK

Being stuck is something that coaches and coachees have in common!

As a coach how do we help our coachees become ‘unstuck’?  As a coach how do we ensure we don’t become stuck and what do we do when we do become stuck?  Can we practise becoming stuck and unstuck?

What can cause someone to become stuck, how do they react to being stuck and, as coaches, what are some of the options at our disposal for helping someone to become ‘unstuck’?  These are some of the questions we can consider during the ACGSE call so bring your questions and let’s explore how we can help each other.
