Core Principles about Coaching Supervision

Coaching supervision is a reflective space for participants to partner with a trained supervisor in a safe environment to work on themselves for their own development as well as for the benefit of their clients. As a group supervisor, you have additional skills in group dynamics and partnering with multiple partners in the reflective space.

Program Objectives

The objective of this program is to train supervisors to provide group supervision following the EMCC coaching supervision competency model.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Understand and apply the EMCC coaching supervision core competency model in a group setting

  • Apply the various supervision tools in a group setting
  • Create a safe space in a group setting for coaches with strong emotions
  • Effectively work with ethical dilemmas

This program is very interactive and experiential, with an emphasis on application and reflective practice. Participants are expected to learn the theories, apply the theories in their practice groups as well as their own supervision group outside of the classroom setting.
