Coach Supervision with Denise Harris


About the session:

The focus is to create a safe and supportive environment that concentrates on participants’ learning. The format is characterised by active listening and thoughtful questioning.

The supervisor will use a variety of models to structure the discussion and apply simple rules of reflection so individuals can take stock of their own coaching practice, explore their thoughts and feelings around their coaching, and strengthen understanding and confidence.

There is an expectation that coaches will arrive at the supervision session read to share the issue they want to explore or address. This may be to reflect on a critical incident or challenging situation or to prepare for a future coaching session.

Examples of topics may include:

  • Managing the dynamics and relationships in your coaching
  • Fulfilling client and organisational expectations
  • Addressing immediate issues or concerns that might be impacting on your coaching
  • Sharing skills and experience
  • Developing confidence and standards of competence in coaching
  • Ensuring you adhere to professional, ethical, and organisational standards by addressing potential dilemmas of an ethical nature, or exploring conflicts around personal values
