"Supervision is a working alliance between two professionals where supervisees can offer an account of their work, reflect on it, receive feedback, and where appropriate, guidance. The object of this alliance is to enable the supervisee to gain ethical competence, confidence, compassion, and creativity so as to give their best possible services to their clients."
(Inskipp and Proctor 1995)
Coaches, coach training institutes and commissioners of coaches now recognise supervision as an important component of an effective coaching process. The Coaching at Work surveys of 2009 and 2010 identified coach supervision as one of the top 10 issues for coaches and a necessary requirement for any coach wanting to operate within the Public or Corporate arenas. In addition the introduction of EMCC European Individual Accreditation (EIA) award has increased the demand for trained supervisors across the UK and Europe putting Coach Supervision training at the forefront of development needs for experienced Coaches.
Initially coaching borrowed from psychotherapeutic models of supervision but now with contributions from Peter Hawkins, Nick Smith, Graham Lee, Patti Stevens and Michael Carroll, coach supervision has a methodology firmly underpinned by organisational and psychological theory.
