    International Coach Supervision Training

    Coaching Supervision is a formal process of professional support, which ensures continuing development of the coach and effectiveness of his/her coaching practice though interactive reflection, interpretative evaluation and the sharing of expertise.

    Bachkirova, Stevens and Willis 2005

    First time offered in the U.S. International Coach Supervision Training facilitated by Tatiana Bachkirova, Professor of Coaching Psychology and Director of the International Center for Coaching & Mentoring at Oxford Brooks University and Angela Wright, Director of the Coaching Center of Excellence and Co-Chair of Coaching Supervision Programs at the Association of Talent Development, New York City. 

    Program Overview

    November 2018 - February 2019

    The International Coach Supervision Training Program is designed for experienced coaches with an active coaching practice who already have a postgraduate qualification in Coaching, Psychology or equivalent.  

    The aim of the program is to provide highly experienced coaches with an opportunity to extend their competences and skills into the area of coaching supervision. The program is designed to use innovative and intellectually stimulating methods to take senior practitioners to a new realm of practice.

    Participants will:

    • Be introduced to different discourses of coaching, and engage with a high-level overview and critical analysis of the coaching field that will allow them to position their practice for the benefit of the coaching profession as a whole.
    • Explore multiple perspectives on coaching in order to develop an approach to supervision that is professional, ethical and tailor-made for individual coaches using a wide variety of approaches.
    • Be provided with an opportunity to enhance their understanding and develop advanced skills in order to address various issues of the supervision process.

    The program consists of 2 stages

    Stage A: Preparation Stage

    Stage A consists of three months preparation during which participants undertake preliminary reading, reflection, peer-supervision and supervision practice. This stage is to be completed between November 2018 and February 2019.

    The minimum reading will include specifically designed materials and selected chapters from the provided book: Bachkirova, T., Jackson, P. & Clutterbuck, D. (Eds), (2011) Coaching and Mentoring Supervision: Theory and Practice, Maidenhead: Open University Press.

    Participants will be paired for peer-supervision (at least two sessions) according to provided guidance that will include tasks for reflection and preparation. In addition, they will be asked to deliver at least one supervision session for a volunteer coach.

    Stage B: Intensive 4 day course. This face-to-face component will take place in New York in February 2019.

    This intensive course will provide participants with the opportunity to explore and to start developing their own model of supervision by:

    • Exploring conceptual issues, coaching discourses and theoretical perspectives on supervision
    • Engaging with a deeper understanding of the supervision process and related issues
    • Experimenting with a variety of skills essential for coaching supervisors

    The course will engage participants in a range of innovative methods of study that include conceptual discussions, co-active reflection, experiential activities and group supervision. Participants are not initiated into a particular approach to supervision but are encouraged to experiment with the variety of approaches in order to identify their own model and style of supervision.

    With the completion of further virtual components, participants may seek accreditation as a Coach Supervisor with Oxford Brooks University, the European Mentoring & Coaching Council as well as other professional associations, including the Association of Coaching Supervisors, the Association of Professional Executive Coaches and Supervisors. Oxford Brookes University has been a leading provider of postgraduate education for Coaching Supervisors since 2006 and is well recognized in the field of coaching and mentoring for its leading contribution to research and postgraduate education of coaches, mentors and supervisors.

    Positive Psychology has been described as the 'science of what makes life worth living'. The evidence is building that its application enhances peak performance by contributing directly to greater well-being, physical health, life satisfaction, engagement and achievement in work, study and life. At the same time it’s application acts as a protective factor resulting in less anxiety, stress and depression coupled with increased levels of hope, mental toughness and resilience.

    However, the world’s media remains gripped by stories of depression, stress and psychological ill health. It has been estimated that 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. has suffered from mental illness within the last 12 months. Worse still, the Congressional Research Service estimated in January 2018 that the prevalence of mental illness amongst the U.S. adult population was between 26.2% and 32.4%. Moreover, research in the field of coaching has found that between 25% and 50% of clients presenting for coaching meet criteria for clinical mental health.

    At the organizational level, research suggests that stress is one of the biggest causes of absenteeism at work, costing $billions annually. It has been estimated that at any one time only 30% of the workforce are likely to be engaged. Indeed, engaging, motivating retaining talent is an increasing challenge that directly impacts the bottom line. Competitive, high-pressure cultures are no longer sufficient to drive organizational success. Our ability to work with and through others, and to adapt and remain resilient as new challenges emerge, have become even more critical as disruptive forces increase the pace of change.

    As a result, Positive Psychology is increasingly being used by leaders, coaches, HR, L&D, OD and Talent professionals in order to help organizations reap tangible benefits, relating to profitability, productivity, customer loyalty and satisfaction.

    Participants will:

    • Be provided with an engaging overview of latest global research on the application and integration of Positive Psychology in leadership, coaching and the workplace.
    • Explore the Well-being and Performance Framework and how coaching can build PERMAH (Positive Emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, Accomplishments & Health) and optimal functioning.
    • Understand the positive workplace practices that allow human and organizational flourishing, including the role of Positive Emotions and FLOW, the use of Strengths and the development of Mental Toughness.
    • Explore the latest research on Engagement, Motivation, Self Determination Theory, and Needs Supportive Management, Leadership & Coaching.
    • Learn and Practice Positive Psychology Coaching.
    • Be provided with an overview of the groundbreaking research on the Coaching Ripple Effect to support wider systemic change.

    This program is designed for Leaders, Coaches, HR, L&D, OD and Talent professionals who want to learn how to use the science of Positive Psychology to drive Peak Performance at the individual, team and organizational level.

    Workshop Day 2: Introduction to Evidence Based Coaching

    Over the last two decades the use of coaching as a means of enhancing performance and development in organizations has increased substantially. This trend shows no sign of slowing down. At the same time there has been exponential growth in the amount of coaching research, and increased interest in the development of evidence-based approaches to coaching. Despite this, there is still a lack of clarity about what constitutes evidence-based coaching.

    “The intelligent and conscientious use of relevant and best current knowledge, integrated with professional practitioner expertise in making decisions about how to deliver coaching to coaching clients and in designing and delivering coach training programs” Grant, 2016

    Using the best available evidence from research, theory and practice, this unique workshop will explore the fundamentals of coaching, including the core theories and techniques of evidence-based coaching used to facilitate individual and cultural change. The workshop covers both the “how” of coaching (how to coach) and the “why” of coaching (why it works) – it is results focused, interactive and highly experiential.

    Participants will:

    • Understand the nature of evidence-based practice as it relates to coaching;
    • Explore of some of the research in the field of coaching, including the latest research on motivation and the “coaching ripple effect”;
    • Be provided with an overview of a wide range of theoretical perspectives and approaches to coaching;
    • Learn and practice the core micro skills of solution focused coaching;
    • Participate in co-coaching practice; and
    • Receive individual feedback to enhance effective coaching skills and techniques.

    This program is designed for:

    • HR, L&D, OD and Talent professionals who want to learn the fundamentals of coaching theory and practice;
    • Those responsible for coaching and coaching programs within their organization;
    • Those new to coaching or those who wish to explore coaching as a future career;
    • Practicing coaches who want to update their skills to include Evidence Based Practice; and
    • Mid to senior level managers who want to learn to coach their reports and teams more effectively.

    Over the last two decades the use of coaching as a means of enhancing performance and development in organizations has increased substantially. This trend shows no sign of slowing down. At the same time there has been exponential growth in the amount of coaching research, and increased interest in the development of evidence-based approaches to coaching. Despite this, there is still a lack of clarity about what constitutes evidence-based coaching.

    “The intelligent and conscientious use of relevant and best current knowledge, integrated with professional practitioner expertise in making decisions about how to deliver coaching to coaching clients and in designing and delivering coach training programs” Grant, 2016

    Using the best available evidence from research, theory and practice, this unique workshop will explore the fundamentals of coaching, including the core theories and techniques of evidence-based coaching used to facilitate individual and cultural change. The workshop covers both the “how” of coaching (how to coach) and the “why” of coaching (why it works) – it is results focused, interactive and highly experiential.

    Participants will:

    • Understand the nature of evidence-based practice as it relates to coaching;

    • Explore of some of the research in the field of coaching, including the latest research on motivation and the “coaching ripple effect”;

    • Be provided with an overview of a wide range of theoretical perspectives and approaches to coaching;

    • Learn and practice the core micro skills of solution focused coaching;

    • Participate in co-coaching practice; and

    • Receive individual feedback to enhance effective coaching skills and techniques.

    This program is designed for:

    • HR, L&D, OD and Talent professionals who want to learn the fundamentals of coaching theory and practice;

    • Those responsible for coaching and coaching programs within their organization;

    • Those new to coaching or those who wish to explore coaching as a future career;

    • Practicing coaches who want to update their skills to include Evidence Based Practice; and

    • Mid to senior level managers who want to learn to coach their reports and teams more effectively.
