Internal Coaching Community of Practice - Coaching Supervision

Coach Supervision is becoming a worldwide phenomenon within the coaching profession.  Very similar to the supervision that professionals in the helping professions get in terms of practicing their crafts, it provides a safe place for the coach to talk about issues that are coming up for them when coaching clients, such as in terms of ethics, enmeshment with a client’s behavior or story, dealing with the coach’s reaction and triggers, and many others developing matters. Additionally, the U.S. Federal government has become involved in the examination around the issue of supervision for internal coaches.

Alan Myers, PCC discusses some of the contextual challenges that the internal Federal coach has to face from time to time and some strategies that will be employed in the coming months. Also, we take a look at the role of the mentor coach and supervisor … are they really different?
