Beyond the Page Podcast -Co-Presencing ~ Demystifying coaching supervision.

Co-Presencing ~ Demystifying coaching supervision.

We are excited to share with you the next interview in our “Beyond the Page” series featuring PoYee Dorrian.

While there are many definitions of coaching supervision – including those provided by coaching organizations such as the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) – they all encompass the elements of reflective practice. Supervision is a safe space that expands the capacity, development and resourcefulness of coaches and practitioners in their coaching practice for the benefit of their clients and stakeholders.

Specifically in the Americas, a mentor coach may focus primarily on upgrading the coach’s skills from a technical perspective. A coach supervisor, however, explores the various aspects of self-awareness, relational dynamics and systemic dimensions, to help uncover invisible influences that may hinder the quality of their coaching and expressions of those skills.

If the purpose of coaching is to support clients in making improvements and achieving goals, then the purpose of supervision is to widen coaches’ aperture to examine their paradigm and perceive the multi-faceted relationships – the connections and the space within, without, and with the interweaving systems in which they operate.

In this podcast, we will discuss what the difference is between coaching and supervision and how to define supervision.

PoYee is a Master Certified Coach with ICF, an accredited coaching supervisor, and a faculty member with the Coaching Supervision Academy (CSA) and the International Coach Academy (ICA). She brings a holistic and integral approach that has been profoundly shaped by her varying and diverse cultural, educational, and professional experiences.

In her private practice as the Principal Coach in “Journey By PoYee”, she works globally with corporate leaders, top teams, internal and external executive coaches, and team coaches.

PoYee believes in the profundity of reflective conversations that are sacred, meaningful, and heartfelt. It is the foundation for co-visioning a ‘fertile void’ where all parts of us are welcomed and honored – our minds, bodies, and most importantly, hearts – a deep resonance to connect to each other’s humanity.

She believes in the magic behind the mystery of co-creating anew in the unknown with lightness, whole-heartedness, and love.

I would love to know your thoughts on PoYee’s interview.  Comment below with what some of your takeaways were.
