The Revised ICF Competency Model introduced the foundational competency #2 "Embodies a Coaching Mindset" into the mix. This is a wonderful step forward in the world of professional coaching. Several of the new markers of competence can be developed through the regular practice of Reflective Coach Supervision*. Coach supervision has been a regular practice for our European counterparts for some time and is now slowly making its way into the Americas. This updated focus in the new competency model does not require coach supervision explicitly but it does require that the coach develop some form of reflective practice. My experience has been that Supervision is vital to my own growth and healthy functioning as a coach. It helps me to be more thoughtful in how I show up. It allows me to reflect on what happened for me in a recent session with a client and determine how I might move forward differently in the future. It helps me to have a more impactful relationship with my clients. All these lead to more effective coaching engagements.
