Supervision for Executive, Leadership and Organisational Coaches

HOW DO WE WORK TOGETHER AND WHAT DOES IT COST?

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.

I am adaptable to your needs and preferences as a coach, whilst maintaining the spirit of personal and professional development, and coaching standards. I use a variety of methods, models, approaches, and philosophies as is relevant to your needs and case. Of particular interest to organisational coaches is Peter Hawkins’ 7-Eyed Model of Supervision, which maps out elements of coaching in this space.

I work with my clients through encrypted online video calling. This provides convenience, saves resources, time and allows global connection with the ease of a click. 

I supervise executive coaches typically on a monthly basis. This supervision is usually done in a one-on-one format.

HOW IS EXECUTIVE COACH SUPERVISION DIFFERENT TO COACHING?

As a practitioner working within the field of personal and professional development with other human beings, you will always be one element of the dynamic in these relationships.

Specifically within the intricate environments of organisations, the nature of these relationships can present difficult ethical dilemmas, personal triggers and complexity. Often dynamics with an organisational origin emerge between the coach and the client, outside of either’s direct awareness. Within supervision we together recognise where you are effectively managing these issues, so that you can build those skills with more intent, as well as where you are getting stuck in the issues, so that you can respond effectively, safely and ethically with an impact on your executive client and the organisation as a whole.

WHAT YOU WILL GET FROM EXECUTIVE COACH SUPERVISION

Executive coach supervision helps you recognise how you approach your practice and engage with executive clients.

It is about understanding your strengths and developmental areas with deeper insight, so you can use them consciously and with intent as needed, within the context of leadership coaching in organisations. You will learn to recognise patterns that emerge in your experiences with executive clients and the management of your practice as a business. This helps you avoid repeat difficulties whilst increasing your effectiveness as an organisational coach, leadership coach or executive coach.

HOW WILL IT HELP?

In coach supervision you can expect to resolve the challenges you experience with clients and in managing your practice. I supervise professional coaches both new to the field and experienced, whether working with individuals or groups, or at executive level in organisations.

I am passionate about helping coaches to grow their online and face to face businesses. In addition to supervision, I share a number of business tools and best practices to help coaches enhance their approach to their practice and engagement with clients.

SUPERVISION PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATIONS

I have a PCC with ICF, and Diplomas in Coaching and Coach Supervision. I supervise using a co-creative and appreciative approach, aligned with supervision’s core of psychological mindedness. I use transactional analysis as a framework to help explore experiences and relationships. I maintain professional practice by working with my own supervisor and other continuous professional development training.

WHAT SETS ME APART?

The work I do in supervision goes beyond only thinking as a means of problem-solving. You can expect to experience a paradigm shift in the way you think but also how you feel, your energy, your behaviour and your engagement with clients and your practice. The outcomes of supervision with me are whole-person focused and sustainable. 

Having shifted into the space of working with people from an entirely different career, I have first-hand experience with the challenges that come along with starting and running a business.

In addition to case supervision I can guide you to a number of technical solutions and tools that not only make running your business easier but save you time as well.

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.

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.

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.

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.
