- Scope of Services

- Services - Supervision Agreement
The aim of our supervision sessions is to provide support for your professional practice so that you can be the best coach you can be. In our role as supervisor Optimus Coach Academy will provide a safe space for you to reflect on the work you do with your clients and for us to explore any aspects of your coaching business that you may find supportive.
The desired outcomes of the supervision vary from coach to coach. The clearer you state your intentions or development goals, the closer we can help you focus on achieving them during our sessions.
We will not tell you what to do during supervision or provide solutions to your professional dilemmas. We may offer suggestions or share our way of thinking or working, but this is always to be taken as inspiration rather than assuming any certainty about best practice. The understanding is that you will evaluate all and any input that we may provide and take full responsibility for your own actions and inactions.
Throughout the working relationship as your supervisor we will engage in direct and personal conversations. You can rely upon us to be honest and straightforward in asking questions and making requests. If you believe that supervision is not working as desired, you will immediately communicate that and we will take action to remedy the situation.
Optimus Coach Academy commit to providing a qualified coaching supervisor to run all coaching supervision sessions.
Notwithstanding the terms of the Agreement, the dates, times and locations for delivery of these Services will be arranged between Optimus Coach Academy in advance and at a convenient time for both Parties.
