How do I prepare for a coaching supervision?

Coaches ask met this question: how can I prepare for a coaching supervision? What do I discuss during a coach supervision?

I remember that I had the same question when I started my supervision with my coach supervisor. I see my coach supervisor every 2 months and often I found a last minute topic to discuss. But that has changed in the mean while. My radar to notice good supervision topics is scanning continuously during and after my coaching sessions.

My speed of working and living prevented me from reflecting, feeling and noticing. I needed to learn to reflect after coaching.


Do you need to be in big problems before you see a coaching supervisor?

I used to think I needed to have a BIG problem before I consulted a coaching supervisor. Now I know that is not true. I have discovered that there are many blind spots which my supervisor will point out. Today I belief that there is always a wonderful discovery journey waiting for me!

How do I prepare for a coaching supervision?

  • What case would I like to discuss in supervision? Where did I feel hesitations during coaching?
  • What kind of dilemma’s did I come accross?
  • What remains unspoken, not felt?
  • What do I find challenging coach situations or more ‘difficult clients’ ot deal with?
  • What were moments of doubt, feeling uneasy, shame during or after my coachings?  What do I rather not like to look at?
  • What is my next step I want to take with the team I am coaching? What do I possibly not see yet?
  • What do I want to check out with my coach supervisor?
