What is Coaching Supervision?


“A structured formal process for coaches, with the help of a coaching supervisor, to attend to improving the quality of their coaching, grow their coaching capacity and support themselves and their practice. Supervision should also be a source of organizational learning.”


-Hawkins and Smith, 2006


Coaching Supervision is a formal, confidential process where a coach brings his or her coaching experiences to a coaching supervisor or supervision group in order to engage in reflective dialogue and collaborative learning.  Our approach at ATD NYC follows the same format and also provides a forum for coaches to meet, share and learn the latest thinking.  


Supervision provides an opportunity for coaches to work with other professionals in order to review their specific cases from a personal, professional and systemic perspective. 


While models of supervision vary, supervision typically has three major functions:

  1. The professional development of the practitioner.
  2. Practical and psychological support for the coach in carrying out their role; and
  3. The promotion and maintenance of acceptable standards of work and good practice.
