Exploring the Intricacies of Mentor Coaching and Coaching Supervision with Angelos Derlopas
Prepare for an exploration into the world of coaching with Angelos Derlopas, founder and CEO of Positivity Coaching. We promise you a journey of knowledge where you'll uncover the subtle yet significant differences between mentor coaching and coaching supervision. Listen as Angelos leads us through the labyrinth of coaching skills, explaining how supervision is a co-reflective process that enhances more than just our skills, but also our self-awareness, professional boundaries, and ethical understanding. He elaborates on how supervision can paint a holistic picture of work, ultimately augmenting a coach's leadership strategy.
Isn't it intriguing how mentor coaching and supervision can diverge yet remain intertwined in the coaching journey? Angelos elaborates on this in our discussion, highlighting how mentor coaching is about the 'doing' - being a developmental process that hones in on skill building within specific competencies. In contrast, supervision is about the 'being' and the 'becoming' - a transformational process focusing on what happens around the coaching sessions, enabling a deeper understanding of oneself and promoting personal growth. Whether you're a seasoned coach or just starting out, Angelos's expert insights can elevate your coaching journey to new heights.
