Quality Requires Artful Wrestling

2 hours of Core Competency CCEU applied for

Quality as a coach is a continuously learning journey. Ethical maturity is essential for sustaining quality. Coaches must develop a generative practice to both inspect and reflect on our coaching interactions.

Artful wrestling requires an internal stance of beginner’s mind so that we become aware of the boundaries, borders, buffers and blinders that operate in the field between us and our clients, hindering client leadership in our partnership.

Coaches will

  • Learn about the value of reflection on practice as espoused through the discipline of coaching supervision

  • Acquire a set of practices to both inspect and reflect on client interactions in order to discover opportunities to increase quality

  • Identify at least one assumption, preference or bias about being a coach that is limiting client leadership and have a plan for change
