REFLECT | SHIFT | DEVELOP | ACT

If you are a coach looking to learn about yourself in partnership with others, this group is for you. I lead this supervision group using a co-creative approach, you will have the opportunity to:

  • reflect on your case experiences
  • resolve practice issues
  • deepen your personal and professional awareness
  • expand and deepen your coaching skills
  • build confidence
  • grow your practice
  • apply your learning

About the Supervisor

I have a PCC credential with the International Coach Federation, and Diplomas in Coaching and Coach Supervision. I work co-creatively, empathically and in the here-and-now. Much of my philosophy, technique and framework is informed by transactional analysis, a social psychology which conceptualises how people think, feel, and behave in relationships and communication. I am responsive to where my supervisees are in their level of coaching experience, their preferences on a spectrum between structure or spontaneity, and the safety of their clients and themselves.

About the Experience

This group work is not about the “what”, or the circumstances, it is about the “who”, values and meaning. The group will deepen awareness of your “being” as a coach and a person, leading to tangible outcomes to apply to your practice, whether that be with a specific organisational/individual client, or your practice as a whole.

In this supervision group you can expect:

– tight contracting on confidentiality, to create an effective space for group work.
– a transformative experience, shifting your thinking and your being in relation to your challenge
– a toolkit of modalities to use as a platform for discovery and resolution

I help coaches make sense of and respond effectively to the challenges they face as people and professionals.

If you’re experiencing a challenging client or situation, we will first work towards feeling grounded and whole, to then make more sense of what is going on in your practice so you can be more effective for your clients.

An important consideration for coaches in group supervision is the matter of confidentiality. It is vital that the experiences coaches share in the group do not identify clients, organisations or other personal circumstances. My supervision works around this challenge effectively. The learning in this group is about you as a person, as a coach, and as a professional. As such, what you share in the group will be about your experience of the circumstances, not the circumstances themselves. This is what true supervision is about. Where information for context is required, a brief mapping-out of the scenario suffices and maintains confidentiality.

What to do if you are interested

  • Be willing and able to commit to 6 sessions (spanning approx. 6 months)
  • Have completed coach training (you do not need to be credentialed)
  • Set up an obligation and cost-free meeting with me below

My Clients’ Experiences with Me

Jens
Jens Kleis Frederiksen
JKF Coaching
Executive Coach

Alex has been supervising me for quite a long time, during which he has become an integral and highly valued contributor to my continuous learning and development. Despite the considerable distance between South Africa and Switzerland, I chose Alex as my supervisor because of his remarkably solid academic foundation, strong coaching experience and his straight forward, friendly and results-oriented approach. Coaching supervision is so much more than a tick-box compliance exercise and I cherish my sessions with Alex as opportunities to reflect, challenge my assumptions and design actionable outcomes. I recommend Alex to any professional coach looking for a top-tier, committed and highly competent supervisor.

Alex is an insightful and supportive supervisor. I’ve very much enjoyed working with him as he gently asks thought provoking questions to help me reflect on my coaching practice. Alex adds value to enhance coaching mastery!

Alex is beyond amazing when it comes to really connecting to the core motivation and challenges I have experienced as a coach. I respect his professionalism and keeping me aligned with ICF core competencies. He goes deep, but carries the conversation with empathy and genuine motivation in helping me find my strengths and desire to continually grow and find what style and methods work for me. Alex has been one of the most significant influences in my coaching journey with SACAP and I appreciate the work he has done to help me maximize my abilities, and compassion to understand the human side of the trials and successes in personal and professional development.

I left each group supervision session with Alex being expanded by his role modelling coaching supervision. My horizons were broadened by the individual learning and edge work of participant coaches, by the collective group learning and the sense of community that developed. A warm smile crosses my face, as I recall the clarity of intention and skill with which Alex fostered the coaching supervision environment by using creative structure. He is skilled at applying both supervision and Transactional Analysis theory to help coaches grow in their practice, in themselves as well as areas of vulnerability. I experienced Alex as grounded in his coaching supervision approach and resourceful in sharing knowledge, tools, observations and reading material for growth.

Leadership / Management Coach, Facilitator & Consultant

I grew in a number of ways through working with Alex as my coaching supervisor. His gently challenging attention kept me focused when I digressed. He is a master of asking questions that nudge (and sometime necessarily push) one forward and I learned a lot from listening to him question fellow coaches in the supervision group as well as from the results I derived from his questioning me. His approach of supervising in groups increased the scope and depth of learning. His broad theoretical knowledge expanded my coaching repertoire and his careful attention to detail and the bigger picture contributed significantly to my unfolding professional development.

I found my supervision interaction with Alex very useful. Through incisive questions and focussed listening, he helped me gain valuable insights into myself as coach.

Alex has been a consummate professional in his Supervision of my Coach learning journey whilst completing my SACAP Post Grad Diploma in Coaching Internship. Alex provided me with relevant and informative reflection, and oversight of my coaching as practice. He attentively focused on: 1) my growth & development as a coach – enhancing my competence as a practitioner; 2) carefully supported and nurtured my role of coach as a person – deepening my confidence and self-belief of who I am as a coach; and 3) skilfully displayed what it means to be a professional coach – providing me a lived experience of integrity and collaboration in the way in which he supported our reflective dialogue. It has been an absolute privilege partnering and collaborating with Alex!

I place great value on the contribution that the supervision work I do with Alex has made (and continues to make) to my coaching practice. His gently rigorous way of being has helped me negotiate tricky coaching challenges, develop practices that take care of myself and supported me to clarify the sort of coach I wish to be. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

David Kossew
Software Architect and Leadership & Team Coach (ICF - ACC, ORSC)

Alex has been my supervisor since my business coaching internship in 2018. I have taken many varied and different things into supervision with Alex, from referrals, to incorporating assessments into my coaching practice, to conflicts of interest, and even team coaching with a co-coach.

I find Alex to be extremely knowledgeable, especially when it comes to Transactional Analysis (TA), the “7-eyed model of supervision” and other theory he draws from in the moment. Everything I’ve brought into supervision, we have looked at through the lens of one of these frameworks, and every time I’ve come away with more insight and awareness of what I am responsible for in these coaching relationship systems.

A supervision session feels challenging, insightful and highly rewarding, as long as you work for it and are willing to be honest with yourself in terms of thoughts, feelings, judgments and decisions.
