What is Coaching Supervision?
Coaching vs Mentorship vs Supervision
A mentor will show you the ropes, help you improve your skills.
A coach will enable you to find your own answers, and carry through with your commitments.
As a performance based coach – you’re working to help them reach a result, by helping them achieve faster. You act as an accelerator.
As a developmental coach – you’re helping them increase their ability to handle conflict or stuck situations. Increasing their own skills of self awareness, mindfulness, emotional fitness. Enabling someone to become their own coach.
A Supervisor is the next level.
A Supervisor will create a collaborative environment, and enable you to think about your thinking.
SUPER-Vision, will help bring an outside eye to the awareness of what is going on behind the issue, one layer up. They will ask you the questions about what’s REALLY going on here?
In supervision, we ask the question WHY. Why is this happening? What is it about my development that’s going on? What’s going on in the interaction between me on the mirror?
Supervision enhances ‘seeing’ – the seeing into one’s practice, the illumination of subtle processes in coaching conversations and of blind spots in oneself and in one’s thinking.
There’s nothing to be coached on, there is no visible problem here. But there is a pattern, and for growth, something needs to change.
So you bring in the supervisor. Someone who is an expert coach, who is aware of the ins and outs of psychology, not focused on the what’s happening, but why?

"When a supervisee comes to supervision,
both people will be changed by the relationship
and the conversation that happens between them.
It is a place for everyone in the system
to be thought about or held in mind.
It is a place to have deep conversations;
it is a place to think creatively
with a joined heart/mind perspective."
