Stream flowing over rocks

Sam has the distinguished opportunity to present as a breakout session speaker during the 2014 International Coach Federation (ICF) Midwest Regional and Global Conference in Cleveland, Ohio on June 19-21.  The theme for the conference is “Coaching ROCKS!” 

Rocks take a long time to polish. In fact, when the rock is in nature, the polishing never ceases, but only occurs under the right conditions. This workshop introduces the emerging refinement process for coaches called “Coaching Supervision”.  We will explore what this process is, why it is necessary and sample some of the ways coaches can refine themselves and their practices in service of their clients. A key part of refinement involves “Reflective Practice”, and each participant will practice reflecting on themselves.  Imagine a rock in a river: after thousands of years it knows itself and how it works really well.

Participants will:

  • Understand the nature and purpose of coaching supervision
  • Learn some of the characteristics of well-refined rocks (coaches)
  • Sample a few models of coaching supervision, including reflective practice
  • Reflect upon at least one of their own coaching engagements while using powerful supervision methods
  • Begin their endless journey of coaching refinement, whether they are currently ACC’s, PCC’s or MCC’s
