Reflective Practice for Coaches
Cherie Silas, MCC and Diane Whiting, PCC

11:15 AM – 1:15 PM
Virtual Meeting and Program Fee: Chapter Members: $10 / Non-Chapter Members: $20

Meet Our Presenters:

Cherie Silas, MCC is a Certified Supervision Practitioner who works with experienced coaches to learn more about themselves and how they show up as a coach so they can create more impactful client engagements. She is the founder and head coach at Tandem Coaching Partners and the Director of Education and Coaching for Tandem Coaching Academy’s ACTP, ACSTH, and CCE Programs. Her work focuses on training and mentoring new and experienced coaches in the competencies of Coaching Individuals, Advanced Skills for Coaching Individuals, and Coaching Human Relationship Systems.

Diane Whiting, MSOD, PCC, is a Coaching Supervision Practitioner who works with new and experienced coaches. Her work is directed at deepening the coach’s practice through reflection and reinforcing the importance and role of the coach’s ongoing self-development resulting in greater effectiveness and impact as a coach. She is also a Mentor Coach and Coach Instructor. She instructs the Role of Self in Coaching class at the University of Texas at Dallas Leadership Coaching Program.

Program Description:

The Revised ICF Competency Model 2020 introduced the Foundational Competency #2—Embodies a Coaching Mindset—into the mix. This is a wonderful step forward in the world of professional coaching. Several of the new markers of competence can be developed through the regular practice of Reflective Coach Supervision. Coach supervision has been a regular practice for our European counterparts for some time and is now slowly making its way into the Americas. This updated focus in the new competency model does not require coach supervision explicitly but it does require that the coach develop some form of reflective practice. Coach Supervision can help coaches be more thoughtful in how we show up and help us to have a more impactful relationship with our clients, leading to more effective coaching engagements.
