8. Coach mentoring and coach supervision grow

Emerging leaders aren’t the only people in organizations who need coaching and development. So do internal coaches. A group of federal coaches all voiced similar concerns about their own professional development at the 2015 Capital Coaches Conference:

* “How do we know whether we’re doing good coaching?”

* “How can we get feedback and mentoring to hone our
coaching skills?”

* “How do we continue our professional development?”

* “How can we safely think through dilemmas and options without going to our boss?”

To address these needs, most CCOEs provide ongoing coach mentoring and coaching supervision. ICF defines the two terms this way:

* Mentor Coaching focuses on the development of coaching skills mainly in the context of initial development.

* Coaching Supervision is the interaction that occurs when a coach periodically brings his or her coaching work experiences to a coaching supervisor in order to engage in reflective dialogue and collaborative learning for the development and benefit of the coach and his or her clients. In Coaching Supervision, the coach is invited to focus much more on what is going on in their process and where the personal may be intruding on the professional.

    With the increasing use of polls and surveys by different coaching groups or independent survey firms, it has become more difficult to integrate the different findings into a coherent picture.

    Carol Goldsmith integrates the results from different surveys/interviews brilliantly in this article; and for those with a short attention span, she’s even included the top 10 in an executive summary.

    Most of the organizations that conduct coaching surveys do not point out the limitations of their instrument or data collection procedures. However, when such surveys are combined, as they are in this article, the resulting data can be more credible.
