Lifting The Lid - Episode 40 - The one with a shortage of pixie dust
Clare and Steve discuss the challenge of feedback and knowing how we are doing as a coach, when all our work is confidential and only witnessed by ourselves and our clients. They explore internal and external referencing and ask two of the biggest questions - who am I as a coach and why am I here? They suggest that understanding ‘self as instrument’ provides the framework against which we can measure our own success and that developing our reflexive skills and practice can all provide self feedback. We can then augment that through supervision, mentor coaching and well contracted co-coaching to give us that external feedback.
Welcome to this weekly podcast in which Clare Norman and Steve Ridgley ‘lift the lid’ on coaching supervision.We are both experienced coaches and coach supervisors, passionate about the value that comes from supervision. We will share our experiences, knowledge, wisdom and insight as we set out in this podcast series to explore what supervision is, what it isn’t, what it’s like, how you might show up, what you might bring and how to get the most out of supervision.We will share stories on this journey. Sometimes our personal stories, both as a coach and as a supervisor, but also examples of what coaches have brought to some of our supervision sessions.It’s basically just Clare and Steve having a chat, swapping anecdotes and lifting the lid on key questions that might exist for coaches who are yet to explore supervision or who don’t feel they get value from being in supervision. Questions such as…How is supervision different to coaching?Group supervision, mentor coaching, 1-2-1, peer supervision - which do I choose?What should I take to supervision?Am I resourced enough to coach?Can I talk about my business with my supervisor?Am I in a rut as a coach?How do I move my client forward?Am I leading my client?Is the goal everything?… and much much more.Join us on our weekly exploration of coaching supervision as we set out to tell some truths and lift the lid on supervision.You can reach us directly at:Clare Norman - email@example.comSteve Ridgley - firstname.lastname@example.orgIf you would like to know more, or for us to explore a specific topic, send us your question.This podcast is supported by:The Association of Coaching Supervisors https://www.associationofcoachingsupervisors.com/supervisors/searchand McGraw Hill Publishinghttps://www.mheducation.co.uk/mentor-coaching-a-practical-guide-9780335248797-emea-group
