COACHd – your weekly coaching update | July 15, 2022

Friday, July 15, 2022

Hi Simon,

Welcome to this weeks Get COACHd on Friday.

Its been a good week.

Lots of sunshine for numerous reasons.

One ray of sunshine was my eagerly awaited coaching supervision session. This is a precious time in my diary working 1 on 1 with my supervisor. I love this time.

From the outset, there was intensity, focus and ‘challenge’ – I felt uncomfortable and I felt supported. I brought a conversation about a specific coaching engagement that did not ‘feel quite right’ – you know the ones!

Through the questioning and natural curiosity the ‘right’ questions unlocked thinking and allowed me to increase my understanding of my subject.

Coming away, I spent some time capturing my immediate thoughts, and continuing with the supervision questions to consider implication and next steps.

Could I have got there myself, probably. But two important things were present that may not be there if I attempted to review myself.

Firstly – one of energy. Having a committed and paid for time in my diary works for me. It adds purpose, deadline and accountability.

Secondly – the level of curiosity really held my feet over the flames, but in a good way. The depth of questioning, allowed me to explore safely, and develop new thinking threads.

I came away thinking – that WAS supervision.

Now – where is the sunblock and hat!

Have a gorgeous, summer weekend.
