Beyond the Page Podcast -Reflecting on Reflection ~ The journey to coaching maturity

Reflecting on Reflection ~ The journey to coaching maturity

We are excited to share with you the next interview in our “Beyond the Page” series featuring Kerry Woodcock, Larissa Thurlow and Sherry Matheson.

We recognize and honor that as coaches, we are all at different levels of maturity. Reflecting in and on our practice, where do we consciously and unconsciously enable or inhibit our development and journey to coaching mastery?

The journey to maturity invites you to step into a review of your path so far, stand still long enough to notice where you are now, and look towards what lies ahead for you, both as a coach and as a human being.

In this podcast, we will discuss the three practices of reflection, Pre-flective, Reflexive and Reflective, the metaphors associated with those practices and how we can apply them to our coaching practices.

Kerry Woodcock, Larissa Thurlow and Sherry Matheson have had the privilege of working and playing together in a range of roles and combinations over many years, as co-coaches, colleagues, co-leads, co-supervisors, co-authors and friends. In 2021, they leaned into their courage and commitment to form a powerful, pioneering, co-creative trio to develop and co-lead a Team Coaching Supervision Training Program delivered through Novalda.  Weaving together lightness and depth, championing and challenge, with a dash of irreverence, they often joke that they are two parts sparkle and one part grass stains – no parts assigned!

The trio are all certified Supervisors with Larissa holding an ESIA (EMCC Global Supervision Individual Award) with Sherry and Kerry to follow later this year.

Join us as we learn more about the practice of reflection.

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