Coaching Supervision is more accurately described as engaging in reflective practice in order to develop personal efficacy. It is an opportunity for coaches and facilitators to, in partnership, reflect, increase awareness of what their patterns are, clarify and explore the Coach's approach, process, energy, beliefs and in turn, the impact that these elements have on their coaching, in service of the client.  Coaching supervision can happen one-on-one or in a small group session.


The practice of Coaching Supervision focuses solely on the Coach and provides them with many benefits including but not limited to expansion of their coaching competencies, ethics and standards, identification of personal development edges, presence, confidence and an increase in their overall effectiveness as Coach.

In 2014, one of her first tasks as incoming Vice President of the Vancouver Island Coaches Association, Lily demonstrated her skillful supervisory skills in front of the membership body, a full house of eager coaches and Damian Goldvarg, MCC, Chair of the Global Board of the International Coach Federation who was on hand to share the ICF’s position regarding Coaching Supervision.  Here is a quick summary of the ICF’s findings so far, courtesy of the Vancouver Island Coaches Association:

“With the increase in Coaching Credentialing, it is becoming a recognized practice that coaches at every stage in their coaching journey continually seek development, both personally in terms of deepening their coaching presence and awareness, and professionally in terms of competencies, ethics and standards. One of the growing trends internationally for undertaking such development is engaging in the practice of ‘coaching supervision’ similar in concept to the supervision which supports many behavioral science professions".

Many parts of the world where coaching is well established already consider coaching supervision not only necessary for the coach, but also necessary for maintaining the integrity of the profession. There are even countries where regular engagement in coaching supervision is part of the hiring criteria for an external coach being considered by organizations (e.g.," Are you engaged in supervision and may we check with your supervisor to verify that?")”

Coaching Supervision qualifies for Core CCEUs. 1 hour of coaching supervision = 1 hour of core CCEUs to a maximum of 10 Core CCEUs per year.
