There’s been a growing awareness for some time in the world of coaching and supervision that what happens in team coaching is complex, fluid, and often uncertain. I’ve been researching this area since David Clutterbuck and I conducted a scoping research study in 2017. A key finding in our research was the importance that team coaches place on supervision – either individually or in groups and increasingly coaches are bringing their team coaching assignments for us to reflect on together in supervision. Working with my ‘map of the territory of the complexities and dynamics of team coaching’ this session will give participants an opportunity to explore and dialogue around how to make the most of their supervision to support them before, during and after team coaching assignments. An important element in this will be for participants to consider and reflect on the impact that working with groups and teams has on them personally.
I would hope that through dialogue and inquiry we will deepen our understanding and appreciation of the complexities involved in team coaching. We will consider how supervision provides the container for practitioners to explore and reflect on their team coaching practice and together we will have an opportunity to consider the impact that this work has on us personally.
Dr Alison Hodge is passionate about enabling individuals to realise their potential through their work, to meet their own goals and in turn meet their organisations’ goals.
As an accredited Executive Coach and Executive Coaching Supervisor (EMCC Global) she works globally as a coaching supervisor and with supervisors-in-training. She is a member of the Executive, Consultant to Faculty & Curriculum and Senior Faculty member with CSA and graduated with a DProf in Coaching Supervision from Middlesex University London in July 2014.
Alison has found that a powerful source of understanding for both the coach and supervisor lies in their relationship and interactions. When both parties are involved in co-creating the supervision relationship, the potential learning for both parties is tremendous. Through reflection on practice in supervision we gain valuable data and insights that may inform what is happening in the organisational system in which team coaching is taking place. She has extensive experience of working with groups, group and team facilitation and group process.
