A Member Benefit
The Association for Coaching (AC) East Coast USA Region is providing an opportunity for members to participate in group supervision starting in February, running 8 sessions on alternating Tuesday from February 11th to May 19th, 2020 at 5.30 pm - 7.00 pm ET.
Why Participate in Coaching Supervision?
Coaches working with clients in organizational settings experience complex issues around ethics, boundaries, duty of care, confidentiality, multiple roles and conflicting priorities, which in turn have an impact on the coach’s self-as-instrument and quality of work. Participating in supervision helps coaches to:
- Ensure their coaching practice is professional and ethical
- Develop personally and professionally by reflecting on their work, developing greater understanding and capacity
- Support themselves and others to manage the effect of the client’s and coach’s emotions and stress
What is Group Coaching Supervision?
Group coaching supervision provides an opportunity for coaches to work together with other professionals to review their cases and explore issues and challenges from a personal, professional and systemic perspective.
The process of group supervision provides insight, reflection, direction, support and the sharing of expertise. Group members learn to help one another improve the quality of their coaching, grow their coaching capacity and support each other in their practice.
Group supervision uses one or two experienced supervisors to act as a guide and resource to the group. Group supervision involves a mix of peer-to-peer dialogue and supervisor-guided reflection. The group members provide multiple perspectives on the issues under discussion while the group supervisor facilitates the process, adding direct observation and expert instruction when needed.
Who is this for?
- AC members only.
- Coaches (internal or external) who maintain an active caseload of clients in organizational settings.
- You must be able to commit to at least 7 of the 8 sessions (2/11, 2/25, 3/10, 3/24, 4/7, 4/21, 5/5, 5/19) and schedule a 25 minute get-to-know-you virtual meeting with the facilitators.
- Participants with prior experience of supervision are welcome, however it is not necessary to have engaged in coaching supervision to join the group.
