The Coaching Supervision Podcast - Theory and Practice Brought to Life

If you're a coach or coaching supervisor, this podcast is for you.

Combining short reflections on practice issues facing coaches and interviews with leading coaching supervisors, the podcast takes you on a journey in to the practice of coaching supervision.

As a coach, the podcast serves to develop your "internal supervisor" - that quiet voice that helps you make sense of your practice, notice in the moment and deepen your practice through positive self-questioning.

As a supervisor, the podcast will explore a wide range of supervision concepts and contexts that might enable new ways to work, point to resources and books to explore and examine how supervision shows up in different ways.

This is the world's first podcast dedicated to coaching supervision and the art of becoming a truly reflective coach.

We hope you enjoy the episodes.
