2nd Cycle of GROUP SUPERVISION
What is Group Supervision
Group Supervision is a project of the HCA aiming to the incessant education and growth of its members, since supervision is a vital process for every coach. The concept was first presented in 9th of April 2014, during a Knowledge Meeting with the subject “Coaching Supervision”.
Rationale of the “Group Supervision” Project
The primary idea is to create 4-5 teams of 4-5 coaches per team; each team will have collaboration with a HCA supervisor for a period of 4 months.
Every team will hold 4 sessions (1 session up to 2 hours / month).
The HCA supervisors will volunteer for the process, whereas each participant coach will have a 24€ fee, in order to commit to the program and respect the timetable, so everybody derives mutual benefits from this experience.
