Coaching Supervision
What is it; Why is it important; and How is it different from coach mentoring or coaching the coach?

Coaching Supervision is becoming an increasingly important form of professional development for coaches.
While the ICF currently recommends it but does not require its members to receive supervision, the two largest European professional associations, the EMCC and the AC, both require supervision of their members. It may just be a matter of time before the ICF also requires coaching supervision.

Please join us to learn what coaching supervision is and how it is done.

The team of presenters all hold a Diploma in Coaching Supervision from the Coaching Supervision Academy - Dr. Sabreena Andriesz, MCC, Nancy Hughes, MCC, Jose Ferreira-Filho and Hermann Ditzig. Sabreena, Nancy and Hermann are past presidents of the ICF Singapore chapter.

Webinar - Abrasive leaders rub their co-workers the wrong way.

These executives, managers, and professionals (including physicians and attorneys) who engage in interpersonally aggressive behaviour (also known as workplace bullying) exact a high price in terms of both employee emotional distress and costs to the organization. At the same time, employers feel helpless to intervene, especially when dealing with an abrasive leader whose technical expertise is of critical importance to the organization.

Executive coaches are perfectly positioned to offer a solution to workplace bullying through the specialty practice of coaching abrasive leaders.

Dr Laura Crawshaw, Ph.D., BCC will share a coaching model which incorporates action research and concepts derived from evolutionary psychology, emotional intelligence theory, and the Dr Crawshaw’s research. Through case examples and discussion, participants will gain insight into why bosses bully, how to distinguish an abrasive leader from other types (e.g. adequate, irritating, avoidant and aberrant executives) and how to quickly establish a trusting coaching alliance.

The presentation will cover specific techniques to overcome characteristic client defensiveness, develop awareness, and help abrasive leaders relinquish their destructive management styles in favour of interpersonally-productive strategies. Even coaches who elect not to coach abrasive executives will benefit from learning how to defuse client defensiveness encountered with non-abrasive clients.

Please join Dr Crawshaw in learning about this professionally rewarding, specialty coaching niche that offers rapid, permanent solutions for employers struggling to address workplace bullying.

Session outcomes

Participants may expect to learn:

  • How to motivate abrasive leaders to accept coaching
  • Forming the coaching alliance
  • The three phases of the coaching process

Title : Synchronicity & Intuition: Coaching in a Quantum World
Price : $25 for members (Please log in to register for the event)
  $35 for non members
CCEUs : To be updated 


In today’s world of rapid change and complexity, careful analysis and planning alone no longer deliver the results they once did. We need a new coaching and leadership paradigm: we need to develop the ability to listen and watch for synchronicity.

When you work with synchronicity you:

  • Understand deeper issues both within yourself and your coachee,
  • Are more able to help your coachee attract and make sense of those “out of the blue” people and events that help with decisions in business and life.
  • Help the coachee move to a more meaningful live and career path

In this unique session Phil will share his original PhD Leadership and Synchronicity research which draws on quantum physics, biology, spirituality and psychology and suggested that the heart has the ability to “intuit the future” and provide answers to some of our most puzzling problems, and that synchronicity is the messenger.


Participants will:

  1. Learn to access the power of your heart, synchronicity and intuition for enhanced impact as a coach
  2. Boost business and life success by listening to the heart which already “knows” the answers to many of your coachee’s most puzzling issues
  3. Learn how to apply Phil’s research conclusions to access synchronistic and Intuitive wisdom to help you and your coachee navigate today’s complex global world
