“Success Is Found In Discovering Your Greatest Self”
Cheryl Mastroeni (Thacker)
What does being SUCCESSFUL mean to you?
The definition of success is different for everyone. Your current definition is probably different from the one you had when you started your coaching practice. As you have set up your business and created your programs for individuals and groups, you have learned by experience what works for you and what doesn’t.
Then you add clients to the mix and not only are you faced with topics and issues that stretch your coaching and business skills, but you are challenged with questions of ethical concerns in coaching session that leave you feeling anything but successful.
in the process, you are becoming more aware of who you are (or aren’t) as a coach and business owner. Greatest self? Who is that anyway?
There are times when a coach needs a coach.
There are times when an extra set of eyes/ears on a situation would be a welcome relief.
There are times when you, as a Coach or business owner, do not have to feel alone in what you do.
That’s where SUCCESSFUL COACHES can help.

What is Coaching Supervision?
Coaching Supervision is the interaction that occurs when a coach periodically brings his or her coaching work experiences to a coaching supervisor in order to engage in reflective dialogue and collaborative learning for the development and benefit of the coach and his or her clients.

“It has become recognized practice that coaches at every stage in their coaching journey continually seek development, both personally in terms of deepening their coaching presence and awareness, and professionally in terms of competencies, ethics and standards. One of the growing trends internationally for undertaking such development is engaging in the practice of ‘coaching supervision’ similar in concept to the supervision which supports many behavioral science professions”
“Many parts of the world where coaching is well established already consider coaching supervision not only necessary for the coach and the client, but also necessary for maintaining the integrity of the profession.”
