ICF Bangkok Charter Chapter together with Henley Business School successfully hosted the event in the SUPER-vision series of 4 sessions. Supervision seems to be one of the essential skills required for the continuing professional development of coaches, which could also help us connect with and accept our 'inner-selves'.
The first session “Who we are is how we coach” by Coach Aboodi Shabi set the impression and gave participants an understanding of what supervision is and how important it is to be in touch with “our being” and how to bring our authentic self into the coaching session.
Followed by “Reflective thinking the Henley 8th Way” by Coach Sarah Leach, where all participants learned the Henley 8 way framework; the 8 questions that could help coaches reflect after the session and can improve in their next, example; ‘What might this mean for me as a coach?, What strength does this offer me as a coach? and My learning is...’
This short session provided us with an effective and practical framework. Participants loved the breakout room workshop and left with satisfaction.
The third session was “Supervision with courage and compassion” by Coach Karen Foy, another event that highlighted 'coaches' need to learn to accept fear, be courageous and have more compassion for themselves. Coach Karen took the participants on a journey of empowering and understanding 'self' in order to hold a space for clients to express their real emotions.
And the last session, “Supervision: What is it and how can we find a good supervisor” led by Professor Jonathan Passmore, provided more clarity on how we can find a good supervisor and what coaches would gain by having a supervisor.
We are particularly proud of our community of practice and the determination of our participants in their continuous learning journey throughout the 4 sessions.
It is an honour to be cooperating with a global speaker and bringing useful knowledge to members of ICF Bangkok Charter Chapter.
This is from one of the sessions and it resonates very well with why supervision is essential to the growth of coaches;
The key to other people's hearts is finding the keys to yours.
You have gotta give to receive, get to open yourself up to get inside somebody else.

Testimonial from Coach Atip Muangsuwan, PCC
I would love to thank ICF Bangkok Charter Chapter for a beautiful introduction of Coaching Supervision in collaboration with 'Henley Centre for Coaching' for 4 consecutive series.
The insight I've developed from all 4 series is... Coaching Supervision is about... a supervisor providing a support to a supervisee thru a reflective practice and a realisation of "who we are is how we coach".Coaching Supervision covers holistic coaching practice of supervisee; for example, ethical dilemmas, competencies, learning and development, including well-being of supervisees like emotional regulation, confidence in coaching, etc.
In coaching supervision, a relationship between supervisors and supervisees is equal, no hierarchy; support rather than oversight; and development rather than instruction. So, it' quite similar to a relationship between coaches and coachees in which both are "thinking partners". In short, I believe... the heart of coaching supervision is... a reflective practice and realisation of "who we are is how we coach".
CCoP delivers professional development opportunities through a variety of different outputs, such as webinar presentations from subject- matter experts and facilitated discussion sessions.
