Supervision is a co-reflective process for coaches skill building, increasing self-awareness as a coach, processing professional boundaries and exploring ethical challenges. It can provide a vision for the overall work and increase the awareness of self in relation to one's process and progress, clients, profession and the coaching community. If the coach is a leader, it can add value to their leadership strategy and direction. Mentor coaching is a process that supports a coach in developing their skills. It works best with competencies. That has to do with a doing rather than the be, requires practice observation. Also, mentors can be directed. Now the differences between mentor coaching and coaching supervision are the following Mentor coaching requires practice observation. Supervision does not. Mentor coaching works best with competencies for establishes and maintains agreements, cultivates trust and safety, maintains presence, listens actively, evokes awareness, facilitates clients growth. Supervision works with all but really adds value to the ethical practice and the coaching mindset. Mentors can be directed. Supervisors cannot accept what it comes to ethical issues. At its core, mentoring is mainly about what happens in the session, while supervision is about what happens around the sessions, in the session and about the way you perceive this and are rated, building capacity on how to understand who you are and who you are becoming. Mentor coaching can be a developmental process. Supervision can be a transformational process. The purpose or benefit of supervision is about what happens around the sessions, in the sessions and about the way you perceive what is happening around the sessions and in the sessions and how you do narrate that to yourself and others. It's about building capacity on how to understand who you are and who you are becoming, and it also develops the capacity for reflection on action and reflection in action. Supervision is very important for practicing, assessing, evaluating and strategizing team coaching sessions and trajectories. In summary, supervision is a co-reflective process that enhances coaching skills, self-awareness, professional boundaries and ethical understanding. It provides a holistic view of the work, benefiting the coach's leadership strategy and direction. Mentor coaching supports skills development in specific competencies, requires practice, observation and remember mentors can be directed. The key differences between mentor coaching and coaching supervision include observation requirements that focus on competencies and directiveness.
