Mentor Coaching and Supervision may include: Exploring the coach’s internal process through reflective practice Reviewing establishing the coaching agreement and any other psychological or physical contacts, both implicit and explicit Uncovering blind spots and parallel process Ethical issues Ensuring the coach is ‘fit for purpose’ and perhaps offering accountability Looking at all aspects of the Coach and Coachee’s environment for opportunities for growth in the system Coaching Supervision is a recognised part of continuing professional development (CPD) and is distinct from Mentor Coaching for an ICF Credential. ICF’s Position on Coaching Supervision: ICF recommends Coaching Supervision for full-time professional coach practitioners as part of their portfolio of CPD activities. Coaching Supervision is sufficiently different from coaching that training to provide the knowledge and opportunity to practice supervision skills is needed. As such, all coaching supervisors should receive coaching supervision training. Mentor Coaching and Supervision Coaching Supervision focuses on the development of the coach’s capacity through offering a richer and broader opportunity for support and development. ICF is committed to provide opportunities to coaches to consistently develop and grow professionally. Coaching supervision creates a safe environment for the coach to share their successes and failures in becoming masterful in the way they work with their clients.
