Supervision of coaches
Dare to explore the unknown with your clients
Supervision, the privileged place for the coach
Supervision is the place for the coach to develop his professional practice through his client cases in order to take a reflective time. The focus is not only on the coach's client but also on the coach himself or herself. We will discuss how the coach established his or her relationship with the client, the possible beliefs, the posture and we will look for possible reflections between coach and coachee.
It seems important to me that all coaches owe their clients to be supervised. It is a guarantee of quality and professionalism for our clients.
Revisit client cases to accompany them in the best possible way and to answer any questions and blockages
Develop the "professional gesture": work methods and coach's skills
Address ethical issues
in which cases?
Postures used in supervision
First of all, I use the posture of coaching by using reflections, feedbacks, framework, meta-communication etc
When necessary, I also use the mentoring posture: sharing experiences, providing theoretical points on the coach's posture, etc.
Supervision Roll out
We start with a session to build the "supervision pact" in which we define the objectives, the indicators of success, and especially the relational pact.
The supervision sessions include a time for debriefing the session to develop the "meta" view.
At the end of the supervision cycle, the supervision pact is reviewed.

Supervision is different from:

I accompany the coaches to
explore the unknown with their clients
In my own journey, I have regularly observed that letting go of control to dare to explore the unknown with one's clients is a huge challenge. However, the job of coach is to support our clients in the unknown. This is even more important in the current context where our clients are themselves facing situations that are more and more filled with uncertainty. Developing the ability to explore and live serenely with the unknown for the coach is a tremendous asset.
To dare to explore the unknown, I will accompany you to reinforce your coaching posture, high on the framework, low on the content, to learn to let go of control and create a creative space for the coachee.
In supervision, I will use systemic reflections, meta and feedback so that through the experience lived in supervision the coach can strengthen his/her practice.

Why did I become a supervisor?
In my coaching career, I needed time to understand some of the subtleties of coaching, among others, in terms of posture and relationship to the frame. I myself benefited enormously from the supervisors who accompanied me. They offered me a secure framework in which to ask my questions as a professional, to share my doubts, to clarify my situations. It is important for me to offer this unconditional welcome to other coaches.
One of my ambitions as a supervisor is to participate in the professionalization of the coaching profession. This is why I have followed a professional training course for the supervision profession with Mozaik International.
