This case study is a reflection of my learning journey as a coach supervisor in a group supervision setting. The first enquiry I asked myself is “Is this Mentor Coaching or Supervision?
In choosing to use my Supervised Coaching work at International Coach Academy, I enquired whether what I was doing was Mentor Coaching or Coaching Supervision. One of the purposes of the group was to fulfil their graduation criteria in becoming an ICF ACTP certified coaches. Whilst I listened to their live laser coaching, I assumed the role of an assessor, a mentor, a supervisor and a group facilitator. Some of the coaches in the group were already practicing coaches whilst some are new to the industry. At ICA, we meet our students where they are at and endeavor to up their mastery and game through the process. After discussing this with my CSA tutor, I am confident that what I am doing is coaching supervision since coaching supervision includes mentoring and more. More importantly, I would like to use this context to demonstrate the CSA Full Spectrum Model’s four main cornerstones; Contracting, Relational Presence, Models and Energy Management (FSS, Murdoch & Arnold 2013), in particular what I am learning and putting into practice after the CSA journey.
