Group and team coaching is fun, it’s exciting, it’s challenging, it’s complex and it can be messy. Aside from the practical aspects of managing and facilitating a team coaching assignment, sometimes issues arise that are of a psychological nature which occur because of our own experiences and reactions to being in groups. In this live demonstration session, participants will be able to engage in some personal reflection on their own patterns and themes that occur when engaging in group work, especially in team coaching. Together we will explore how to develop our self awareness and manage ourselves in this unpredictable, relational territory of groups.


Dr Alison Hodge is an accredited Executive Coach and Executive Coaching Supervisor (with APECS & EMCC). She works globally as a coaching supervisor (both in person and digitally) with individuals and groups of internal and external executive coaches. As a member of the Executive, Director of Research and a Senior Faculty member with CSA (Coaching Supervision Academy), she also supervises supervisors-in-training. She graduated with her DProf in Coaching Supervision at Middlesex University in July 2014.

Throughout Alison’s career in this field, she has found that a powerful source of understanding for both the coach and supervisor lies in relationship and interactions. Through reflection on practice in supervision we gain valuable data and insights that may inform what is happening in the organisational system in which team coaching is taking place. She has extensive experience of working in groups, facilitation, and group process. In 2017 David Clutterbuck and Alison conducted a survey on team coaching supervision that highlighted the challenges and complexities of team coaching. The findings indicated that team coaches rely extensively on supervision to support them in this work. She has published articles in AC journal and at the APECS 2015 Symposium on team coaching and supervision.
