Event description

Description

Join us to explore our mutual experiences of being a coach and the value of supervision.

There is a lot researched, spoken of and written about what it is like to do coaching - what model to use, what steps to follow, what framework to apply but there is little written, or spoken, of what it is like to be a coach.

Karen Dean and Sam Humphrey are award winning authors who have written several articles including Is a Coaching Culture an Alternative Tyranny? and Martini Coaching, Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere.

As they say in their book “The journey from novice to master is a unique experience for everyone.”

Being a coach is a deeply rewarding profession and even the best coaches encounter moments of uncertainty and doubt. Sam and Karen will share their varied experiences as executive coaches through story telling – some where they were flowing and glorious and others where they were falling and ashamed – and encourage you to make the links for you. The role of supervisor is essential in enabling the learning and celebration from such profound experiences whether in the personal, professional or practice development context.

This workshop follows the structure of Karen and Sam’s book, Coaching Stories: Flowing and Falling of Being a Coach, presenting specific examples and stories from their work. They invite you to consider the meaning and connections these provoke for you and your practice. What are your stories and what might you have done similarly or differently?

They will pay attention to:

  • Confidence
  • Talent
  • Freedom to choose
  • Peak

These topics will provoke insights and learning for you from your professional experiences. They will invite you to also reflect on your flowing and falling. Considering:

  • “What I wish they had told me”
  • “What I wished I had asked”

They will then look at the importance of Supervision and Self-care for you as supervisor and coach, to ensure that you, the instrument of your work, is fit for purpose, healthy and nurtured. They honour vulnerability, celebrate good practice and facilitate learning and growing.

What might you take away from your unique participation in this workshop?

Key objectives:

  • To underpin your strengths and vulnerabilities, enabling new insights and growth
  • To flex your approach according to the phase of development of the coach
  • To provoke your curiosity, support and courage to facilitate the coach and the system
  • To respect and care for you and your coaches as you make wise choices along the way

Karen Dean is a Master Certified Coach accredited by the International Coach Federation and a coach supervisor. She has been coaching professionally for over 25 years, before which she held various roles in the retail sector. She studied Haematology and is the Chair of the Parish Council.

Sam Humphrey is an accredited coach, supervisor, researcher and author. She has worked in several corporate roles before becoming a professional coach which she has practiced for nearly two decades. Sam is passionate about learning which shows up in her professional and personal development in both traditional and whacky ways.
