Development insights: the learning journeys of highly experienced coach supervisors

N de Estevan-Ubeda International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring 2018

Coaching supervision is a developing profession, yet little is known about the development of supervisors after their training. This study aimed to add to the empirical literature on coach supervisor development and contribute to supervision practice by providing insights which may inform other supervisors. A qualitative study was designed using a narrative interpretivist methodology. Seven highly experienced coach supervisors were interviewed and themes emerged on they develop and change. Findings suggest that experiential learning is the main source of development. Practical recommendations for training and accrediting bodies and joint research with the helping professions are proposed.
