Dr Lise Lewis, Tony Dickel, Craig McKenzie, & David Clutterbuck: What’s different and unique about supervising team coaches? A reflection and review of a pilot training for team coach supervisors

Session on 25 November 2020 07:30 UTC - View on timetable


Team coaching is the fastest growing area of coaching. The number of supervisors who have sufficient and relevant experience in team coaching is, however, very limited even with the increasing recognition that supervision adds value in supporting practice development. One estimate is that the world will need 150,000 new team coaches over the next five years.

The pilot team coaching supervision programme presented in this session was designed and co-created with the support of participants and with a purpose of evaluating the feasibility of EMCC Global creating accreditations for Team Coach Supervisor training programmes and also for Individual Coach Supervisor practice.

You will learn about the differences between coach/mentor supervision and team coaching supervision. We will also present our findings on the additional challenges faced by team coaches and how these inform the role of supervision.

We also want to hear your thoughts on how you see where the differences may be in supervising team coaches and how this informs the practice of team coach supervisors.

Learning outcomes

  • Participants will be introduced to the results of the pilot programme and informed by ground breaking practical examples of team coach supervision
  • The pilot will be further informed by engaging in dialogue between the session participants and the team coach supervisor programme facilitators
