Brigit Proctor, a pioneer of supervision, describes the intention of supervision to be “Formative, Restorative and Normative”. Consequently the focus of supervision is to extend your capability as an internal or external coach by developing your self-awareness and self-assessment – ultimately increasing your effectiveness, resiliency and abilities.
Within a group context, supervision provides a supportive multi-person forum for on-going development where the coach can explore any personal, relational, professional, organisational and/or contextual issues coming from the coaching process building their ability to self-assess and provide increased value to their clients. Groups give participants the opportunity to learn from others’ experiences as well as their own.
Professional group supervision can include a variety of areas:
The supervisor will surface and work with the supervisee in the moment using tools such as Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet’s “Seven Eyed Model of Supervision” providing coaches the opportunity to view alternative perspectives looking through all ‘eyes’ of the situation and gaining both supervisor as well as peer support.
Supporting coaches to be their best has been Tammy’s primary practice over the last eight years. As a coach educator and supervisor, she has taught coaching to leaders and professionals as well as supervised coaches around the world growing their capabilities.
Tammy fosters collegiate relationships and psychological safety to enhance coaches’ ability to reflect about themselves and bring their ‘best self’ to their coaching practice. This expanded awareness leads to enriched engagement with their client, their work and the client’s organisation is at its heart. Tammy brings a transformational perspective to the supervision relationship working with recent coach graduates and highly experienced coaches alike.
