Welcome to this weekly podcast in which Clare Norman and Steve Ridgley ‘lift the lid’ on coaching supervision.

We are both experienced coaches and coach supervisors, passionate about the value that comes from supervision. We will share our experiences, knowledge, wisdom and insight as we set out in this podcast series to explore what supervision is, what it isn’t, what it’s like, how you might show up, what you might bring and how to get the most out of supervision.

We will share stories on this journey. Sometimes our personal stories, both as a coach and as a supervisor, but also examples of what coaches have brought to some of our supervision sessions.

It’s basically just Clare and Steve having a chat, swapping anecdotes and lifting the lid on key questions that might exist for coaches who are yet to explore supervision or who don’t feel they get value from being in supervision. Questions such as…

How is supervision different to coaching?
Group supervision, mentor coaching, 1-2-1, peer supervision - which do I choose?
What should I take to supervision?
Am I resourced enough to coach?
Can I talk about my business with my supervisor?
Am I in a rut as a coach?
How do I move my client forward?
Am I leading my client?
Is the goal everything?

… and much much more.

Join us on our weekly exploration of coaching supervision as we set out to tell some truths and lift the lid on supervision.

    Lifting The Lid - Episode 62 - The one with gold minds

    Lifting The Lid - Episode 62 - The one with gold minds

    Clare and Steve talk with Katie Friedman and Helen Frewer about neurodiversity in coaching and supervision. A fascinating exploration of the gold that neurodiversity provides, and how, as coaches and supervisors, we need to work on seeing everyone as resourceful, creative and whole as we may have some unconscious biases towards the deficit model (as Clare so deftly but inadvertently showed when she talked about red flags). Working with neurodiversity means using all of our coaching skills on steroids.

    Lifting The Lid - Episode 61 - The one where we dress for the part

    Clare and Steve discuss front stage / back stage. Just like the theatre, we show up in life playing roles where our well-rehearsed selves play the part expected, whilst elements of our true selves remain undisclosed in our dressing room backstage. Clare and Steve share some examples of this from both coaching and supervision and invite listeners to consider how the set might be 'constructed' when we work with our clients or with our supervisor and as a consequence which parts of us we unconsciously choose to keep hidden.

    Lifting The Lid - Episode 60 - The one where we try to break free

    Lifting The Lid - Episode 60 - The one where we try to break free

    Clare and Steve explore the question “Do you ever feel stale, stuck, restricted or formulaic in your coaching approach? Curious about our relationship to safety and risk, gain and loss, fear and confidence and to being professional, our podcasters share stories and raise the not knowing levels.

    Lifting The Lid - Episode 59 - The one that transcends the cognitive

    Lifting The Lid - Episode 59 - The one that transcends the cognitive

    Clare and Steve talk to Alex Van Oostveen about his journey into coaching and then into supervision and his move from cognitive supervision to spiritual supervision, more relationally based. We discussed echoes in the system, vibrations that transcend the cognitive and draw on intuition, energy, somatics, emotions, excluding nothing.

    Lifting The Lid - Episode 58 - The one where we pay attention to the water in the fishbowl

    Lifting The Lid - Episode 58 - The one where we pay attention to the water in the fishbowl

    Clare and Steve talk about the way that corporate culture shows up in the thinker’s beliefs, assumptions and values and how we might work with that to establish what and how they want to be within that culture. As the coach, how are we noticing the culture and is our own experience of corporate culture influencing our work? Oftentimes, we are not aware of the water in the fishbowl that we are swimming in and how that might be affecting our choices. Coaches can support their thinkers to get a better sense of the water; and supervisors can help coaches to look at the fishbowl with a new perspective.

    Lifting The Lid - Episode 57 - The one about the verb of relating and the noun of relationship

    Lifting The Lid - Episode 57 - The one about the verb of relating and the noun of relationship

    Clare and Steve get caught in a metaphor that they cannot escape – that of chemistry. They take it further than you might ever have thought about it, into elements, periodic tables, test-tubes, petri-dishes and catalysts. All in service of understanding what it means to relate and how we need to step back and reflect on this third role in the coaching and/or supervision space of coach, thinker and relationship or supervisor, supervisee and relationship. Relating continues throughout the time that we are together, not just in the initial chemistry session.

    How are you relating with your supervisor? How might you approach that relating differently, in order to build a stronger relationship and better outcomes for yourself? How might you translate that from the supervisory room into the coaching room?

Rich learning

Listening to this podcast made me feel a bit like a fly on the wall in a conversation that I really wanted to be a part of! It’s so validating and reassuring to hear the nuances of coaching conundrums named and explored. I love the curiosity and absence of judgement from Clare and Steve as they discuss the potential sticky wickets of coaching and how supervision can help to support you to find your own unique way forward. I’ve learned so much just from listening, thanks so much to you both!
