1 hour sessions from:
0800, 1200 and 1800
Our aim at South West Councils is to support the region in creating a coaching culture that helps individuals realise their potential and organisations achieve outstanding results.
The South West Coaching Pool has established a growing network of coaches and, through collaboration, will maximise the sharing of coaching resources across organisations through a shared service, shared cost approach.
This Group Supervision session aims to support coaches keen to maintain and improve the quality of their coaching.
Members of South West Coaching and Mentoring Pool benefit from the corporate membership to the Association for Coaching, which provides a Group Supervision service on the third Thursday of every month. The calls are held via video link or low-cost teleconference line and are facilitated by experienced AC Coaches who donate an hour of their time to support fellow members. The calls last up to one hour with a maximum of five participants.
The Group Supervision calls are designed to offer members an experience of supervision. Through attending a call members have:
•The opportunity to experience supervision
•Access to the benefits of supervision in a group setting
•An opportunity to connect with other AC members
•A setting in which client work and ethical issues can be explored
•The chance to work with a highly experienced call host
Participation in these calls counts towards your annual Continuous Professional Development. They are designed as a supervision taster and are not intended to replace full professional supervision.
The theme for the 08:00 call only, will be:
How do we show up as coaches in our contracting? What do we do when our clients want to get stuck into the “meat” of coaching straight away? How do we deal with the complexities of coaching in organizations where there may be many stakeholders who may not even share the same outcomes for the coaching? What happens when we fail to do so, or miss out certain aspects? These are just some of the interesting challenges we might face as we contract and re-contract during our sessions.
We will consider what makes for “good” contracting, sharing our experiences and what best practice suggests.
