ICF Australasia Queensland Branch is offering Group Peer Supervision, a professional development program for ICF Australasia Members.
A series of 90 minute group supervision sessions delivered monthly from April to September 2023. Maximum of 6 coaches per session.
Peer Supervision is a way for peers to support one another through shared experience and knowledge. It involves peers who are at the same level of the work hierarchy and serve in the same role as you do, providing support and feedback necessary for your growth and success, in a reciprocal process.
Each Group Peer Supervision has six coaches who subscribe to an entire series in duration of six months (one a month), conducted virtually in 90-minute duration per a session.
Coaches wishing to utilise this opportunity will receive, upon registration Peer Coaching Participant Agreement, summarised in the Peer Supervision Principles, and the Peer Supervision Participant Handbook, which provided all the information needed to start the program and conduct it successful with positive outcomes for everyone involved. It is assumed that by making it more accessible and affordable, more coaches will use Peer Supervision.
ICF Credential-holders may submit up to 10 hours of Coaching Supervision (delivering or receiving) as Core Competency Continuing Coach Education (CCE) units toward their credential renewal.
Coaches commit to the entire series of 6. There are no recordings available, and no refunds will be issued.

GROUP PEER SUPERVISION PRINCIPLES
Group Peer Supervision Principles
- Hold current ICF membership.
- The duration of this iteration of Supervision is 6 months, with sessions scheduled monthly and as per the below schedule.
- Each member commits to the entire duration of the Supervision and pays for the entire program. The group members will take full responsibility for attendance, informing the group in the case of absence and acknowledging that missed sessions will not be refunded.
- The peer group will have up to 6 members, and each member will take a moderator role as agreed by the group.
- The Branch will assign a moderator to each session as soon as the group is completed, all 6 available places taken. The moderator role will rotate, and it is up to the group’s discretion and mutual agreement to change, should they wish to, the moderators list provided by the Branch.
- Each session will adhere to the processes outlined in the Peer Supervision Handbook.
- Adhere to confidentiality, both of content and any sensitive information relating to the coach, their business or their client’s business.
- Once a peer coaching supervision topic is complete, no further discussion on the topic takes place.
- The group meets for 90 minutes, and it is expected that the participants will join on time, preferably 5 minutes prior the start, while the moderator will arrive at least 10 minutes prior the start of the session.
- The role of moderator is to follow the agenda and moderate the session: 10 minutes check-in, 70 minutes allocated to 4 case studies and 10 minutes closure and preparation for the next session, such as confirming moderator and group members presenting cases and alike. The moderator also emails the list of participants to the program coordinator to issue CCEU certificates.
- Preparation for presenting cases will be done in advance using the Seven-Eyed Model from the Handbook. The moderator does not present a case in the session they moderate.
- The emphasis for each session will be typically discussing client specific case studies brought into a Supervision session with a view to deepen both our effectiveness and self-awareness as coaches.
- Scope of topics to be considered for inclusion within meetings includes client specific topics; personal development; business development and areas of interest / sharing resources.
- All opinions are respected and have equal rights. All members are treated equally. Members assume positive intentions for others’ behaviours and suggestions.
- Business relations external to the group are left at the door.
- Targeted feedback, as well as encouragement and celebration, is part of the group ethos
There are 1.5 CCEU available per session which will be sent to you post session – Approval Pending
