Coach Mentoring/Supervision

“Coaching Supervision is a formal process of professional support, which ensures continuing development of the coach and effectiveness of his/her coaching practice through the interactive reflection, interpretative evaluation and the sharing of expertise.”

(Bachkirova, Stevens and Willis, 2005)


Supervision/Mentoring at InnoChan Solutions:

Supervision/Mentoring is an ethical requirement within the Coaching profession. At InnoChan Solutions we believe that the role of a Coach Supervisor/Mentor must:

  • Provide external support and a reference point which clarifies what is going on in the coaching relationship at both the overt and hidden levels
  • Facilitate the development of someone engaged in a learning process and affirms their unique personal style
  • Provide guidance and support for the coach and assumes professional responsibility for the safety and protection of the client
  • Provide an overview of the coach’s professional work, which facilitates or enables personal and professional development
  • Refer to work with clients by offering support while taking into account areas where the coach’s issues might intrude.

Supervision/Mentoring is now becoming a requirement by organisations booking coaches to work with their people and is an essential part of the ICF credentialing process.

InnoChan Solutions identifies three specific areas of the Coaching/Supervision process; the Client, the Coach and, the Business. Supervision/Mentoring sessions provide the time and space for the Coach to explore all of these areas. This will give the Coach the ability to:

  • Develop their coaching skills and their professionalism
  • Identify ‘gaps’ in their abilities
  • Discuss any issues they may have with their clients
  • Discuss their business/practice

InnoChan Solutions is determined to deliver best practice Coaching principles and to help coaches to do the same.
