The differences between mentor coaching and supervision
Mentor coaching focuses on skill building. Being at our sharpest. It involves being observed as we coach and then reflecting with a mentor coach on the competencies that we displayed and those that we could draw on more.
Supervision focuses on keeping us and our thinkers safe, from an ethical standpoint and our own resourcefulness. It is self-reported, relying on us to report what happened in our coaching. Sometimes, we are blind to our own competencies, which is why mentor coaching is so useful.
– Mentor coaching keeps us sharp.
– Supervision keeps us safe and sane.
Both are for the benefit of our thinkers.
