What is Coaching Supervision?

Supervision & the Developmental Journey

As a Hudson Institute Coach, you quickly learn that the developmental journey of a coach is ever evolving and the depth of capacity is in large measure related to the coach’s commitment to their ongoing development.

 Coaching supervision provides you an opportunity to deepen your capacity to work effectively in your coaching engagements. The work of the coach is most often done as a solo practitioner, so putting in place the practice of dedicating a regular time and space to come together with a supervisor and fellow coaches inevitably allows you to reflect upon your work, gain new perspectives and insights, and stay on your own development journey.

Our supervision places a focus on the working relationship between coach, client and the key stakeholders in the client organization as well as the dynamics of the coach, supervisor and members of the supervision group. As we attend to the multiple layers of the system at play in any coaching engagement, the coach inevitably uncovers parallels and patterns that are difficult to perceive without the support of supervision.

The dimensions essential in great coaching include theory and skill based competencies, a reliable and agile methodology, a use of self as coach and a holistic and transformational perspective – and together, we continually link back to these key areas of development throughout the supervision experience.

Supervision is an essential part of my on-going development and learning. My Hudson Coach Supervisor is outstanding at managing the process, contributing to everyone's learning and a checking to confirm our edges are being honed. The benefit of learning from the others in the group, and the sharing of ideas and materials throughout the program is very powerful. I can't personally imagine being a learning coach without being in supervision.
