Many professional fields of practice, including medicine, psychology, social work and law, have long engaged in supervision as a key ingredient for building high quality professional skills. At Hudson, we’re committed to providing our coaches with a variety of vehicles for strengthening capacity because we know supervision is a best practice for any coach dedicated to providing quality services to their clients.
SUPERVISION AND YOUR DEVELOPMENT 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.

What coaches say about Hudson Supervision:
“Entering coaching supervision is one of the best decisions I have made in my coaching practice. I have learned many things about my strengths and growing edges as a coach. This all translates into improvement of my service to my clients and increased joy for me in the process!” — Hudson Coach“Deciding to engage in a supervised coaching group was one of the best decisions I could have made. The opportunity to continue to benefit from the insights and guidance from masterful coaches is of such value, not only to me, but in the resulting work with my clients. As if that weren’t enough, the camaraderie, collaboration and continuing sense of community that we enjoy keeps me connected to a support network that enriches me. I would encourage and recommend to anyone considering how best to “raise their bar” to consider a supervised coaching group.” – Cheryl Sorgi
