If you're a professional coach then you'll know about coach supervision since regular supervision is recommended to deepen our practical skills.
Recently I was in a discussion with experienced coaches and supervisors that suggested supervision was the same as coaching for coaches. I don't agree, though I appreciate that supervision uses a lot of coaching skills.
For me, coach supervision takes on the mantle of protecting the coaching profession to ensure that coaches are developing. This must be a safe space for coaches to air ethical issues with protection and extraction of learning of the benefit of coach and client, and potentially other stakeholders of a coaching relationship.
