Coaching supervision: Do coaches really need it?

Coaches are playing an increasingly important role in individual and organisational learning and development, especially during these trying times. These professionals help their clients in a multitude of ways, but who helps coaches? How do coaches recharge, and who do they turn to when they need guidance?

Join us for the next Leadership Coaching Roundtable event, where we will hear from international coach, researcher and supervisor, Prof Tatiana Bachkirova, about her thoughts on coaching supervision. We will also discuss the current state of coaching supervision in South Africa with Dr Jean Hazlitt, who serves on the COMENSA coaching supervisor committee.
