Virtual Group Supervision for Coaches with Will Jackson


About the session:

Supervision plays a significant role in helping you build your knowledge, increase self-awareness, and improve your coaching practice.  The approach allows you to critically reflect on your practice, explore what worked well and what did not, gain insight into your strengths and potential blind spots, while harnessing the resourcefulness within a group of 6-8 attendees to support you. 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. We apply simple rules of reflection so individuals can take stock of their coaching, explore their thoughts and feelings around their work, and strengthen understanding and confidence.

The supervision will cover individual and whole group questions and topics. You will have the opportunity to explore individual issues or questions, as well as themes shared by the group, with attention around:

  • – Establishing, maintaining, and concluding effective coaching relationships
  • – Fulfilling client and organizational expectations
  • – Application of models and techniques to address client’s needs
  • – Developing confidence and standards of competence
  • – Addressing immediate issues or concerns that might be impacting on your coaching
  • – Ensuring you adhere to professional, ethical and organisational standards by addressing potential dilemmas of an ethical nature, exploring conflicts around personal values.

This supervision session is open to the South East Leadership Academy Faculty of Experienced Coaches (250 hours plus).
