Welcome to Your New Cohort!
The goal of supervision is to help you to develop and refine your professional skills, personal style and ethical practice—in relationship and consultation with me and with some strong peers.
Click here to review my article about the practice of Coaching Supervision in small Cohorts.
Here's what to expect . . .
Cohorts will meet the first Thursday of each month for two hours with a primary focus on Coaching Supervision and some advanced content. We will meet from October 2020-September 2021 and probably continue into another year with the same Cohorts.
Though I will bring resources, Supervision is less a "class" and it's not mentor coaching. It's more a wise and customized consultation that will invite you to revisit and metabolize all of that great coaching wisdom you've on-boarded during coach training (more like "rounds" instead of more medical school). I will ask you as members to take turns bringing your projects, experiments, personal challenges and aspirations for us to work on together.
All of our work will respect confidentiality--and some of it might even inspire collaborations.
Each Supervision Cohort will decide about meeting in-person monthly at SCHQ (as soon as that's possible).
Members have the option of peer coaching, switching triads every three months.
Every six months we will "open the door" for departures and new arrivals. Cohorts will stay small (6-9 members).
Sadly, Supervision qualifies for only ten hours of ICF continuing education every three years.
