Why join AOCS?
AOCS is formed by people who care
We believe there is a need for an association purely focusing on supervision. Whilst supervision has moved beyond the pioneering stage, a platform is needed to enable coaches and buyers of coaching to understand supervision better. The leading associations and academies have acknowledged that supervision needs wider exposure and all have done some excellent work recently to clarify and to promote high standards in supervision. The ICF Board have adopted the position of "strongly encouraging" supervision. We want to give supervision even greater publicity and a larger 'share of voice' in the coaching community.
There is frustration that a lot of coaches/buyers do not “get" supervision, whether this is the connotation of the word “supervisor” or that coaches are nervous of the concept or, even more worryingly, think that they don’t need it!
We are passionate about supervision and the benefits we know supervision brings. As clients benefit from a space to reflect, we believe coaches should too.
