About the book

Coaching is rapidly growing from a young, emerging profession to one that is becoming more established on a global scale. As professional coaching grows, so does the need for a more formulated approach to regulation, ethics and individual development. In order for coaches to develop their skills and knowledge they need to make continual professional development and supervision a core aspect of their practice.

Supervision in Coaching examines how coaches can use a range of professional development tools to improve and develop their coaching. Written by a team of international coaching practitioners, it provides essential guidance on this increasingly key area of coaching practice. The authors provide advice on a range of topics, including approaches to supervision, managing ethical dilemmas, the role of regulation and licensing in coaching and the development of accreditation and professional standards.
