Abstract

Coach supervision is currently a hot topic. With the support of coaching bodies,
supervision is increasingly regarded as a requirement to practice as a coach. However, the
evidence base specific to coach supervision to support its effectiveness is limited. Thus far,
very little research has focused specifically on the supervision of internal coaches, in spite of
the reported growth in their use by organisations - and even less has been published relating
to internal coach supervisors. The ‘voice’ of the internal practitioner, whether coach or coach
supervisor, can still hardly be discerned in the current coaching literature. This paper, based
upon an ethnographic study that followed the introduction of a group of internal supervisors
to their internal coaching scheme, seeks to describe their journey, through their own ‘voices’.
