Become an accredited supervisor and an expert in coaching supervision.

While coaching is about you as a person, supervision explores the nature of your relationship with the people you coach and your developing practice.

Supervision makes an important contribution to the professional development and quality assurance of consultants and executive coaches. It can be a key differentiator in the marketplace and is increasingly central to many formal consulting and coaching qualifications.

This programme offers experienced O.D. consultants and executive coaches an opportunity to be supervised on any aspect of their work, individually and in a group of equally experienced coaches, and to learn how to be a supervisor of other consultants and coaches.

Similar to our philosophy on the Ashridge Masters programmes in Executive Coaching and Organisation Change, this programme takes a relational perspective.

About the programme

This is a two year part-time programme that has been developed by experienced practitioners who have a combination of supervision, research, psychological and organisation development experience.

The qualification will give you the skills, credibility and confidence to offer a new service to your clients. It is designed to build your status as a senior practitioner and supervisor of coaches and consultants.

Aimed at experienced OD consultants and executive coaches, this is an opportunity to be supervised on any aspect of your work, individually and as part of a group of equally experienced coaches. You will learn how to supervise other consultants and consultants effectively.

As with all Ashridge coaching programmes, this programme takes a relational perspective. It develops your theoretical knowledge of the psychological underpinnings of supervision and your critical evaluation of supervision models and theories.

Ashridge approach to Supervision

The Ashridge perspective on coaching and consulting supervision has been the subject of a number of articles and publications. We also run Coaching Supervision sessions which either form part of the qualification or can be purchased individually.

Ashridge sees supervision as an essential quality assurance process for coaches and consultants. It ensures that the client benefits from a professional consultant who is equipped with the insight and personal resourcefulness to make a difference.

We believe that the power and effectiveness of supervision stems from the possibility for new scrutiny and fresh perspectives.

We take a broadly relational perspective on supervision, based on personal experience of effective coaching and the themes and issues at the core of the process.

This is based on the following core principles:
• Human beings are deeply motivated to be in relationships with others, so part of what we (consultant and supervisor) hope to get from this relationship is to repeat our previous relational patterns and through awareness of these, create better patterns both inside and outside the coaching space
• All content of supervision can be seen as relational, i.e. supervisees are continually, even if subliminally, linking relationships elsewhere (real and imagined) to this one
• This supervisory relationship is worth constantly exploring because of the rich learning it can offer
• The supervisee's experience of the supervisory relationship is worth enhancing

Course Structure:

The course is structured around three modules. The first two are based on a series of eight intensive workshops, spread across two years - each lasting one or two days. The third is the accreditation module.

Benefits to you:

If you run your own consulting practice, you will benefit by:
• Being able to offer supervision as well as finely-tuned coaching skills to individuals and organisations
• Having the Ashridge accreditation quality stamp to give clients the added reassurance that you can offer high-level supervision
• Having more confidence in your abilities and being able to introduce new knowledge and skills in your daily work.

If you work for an organisation, it will benefit from:
• The new practices that you can share with colleagues and/or your organisations clients
• Your supervision work - a useful differentiator for the business
• Added credibility thanks to your Ashridge accreditation
• Your increased self-awareness, knowledge and network could make you a candidate for senior level positions in the organisation

If you are interested in becoming a fully accredited, professional executive coach, equipped with the latest knowledge in the field, this is the programme for you. Read more
If you are interested in becoming a fully accredited, professional executive coach, equipped with the latest knowledge in the field, this is the programme for you.

The Ashridge Masters in Executive Coaching is a two-year, part-time, modular, self-directed programme. It is an opportunity to review and re-launch your practice, make the best of your natural skills, learn about yourself as a coach through supervision and co-coaching, and meet some of the most experienced practitioners in the field.

You will develop your coaching and mentoring skills, either to integrate into your existing consultancy and coaching work or to create a solid foundation for a new coaching and consulting practice.

The programme takes a relational psychological perspective, which will deepen your clients’ self-awareness and their understanding of the web of key relationships in their organisation. The aim is to develop your ability to respond to, initiate and enable change through the coaching process.

This programme has been developed by experienced coaching practitioners who have a combination of research, psychological and organisational development experience. Two of the programme modules have been awarded the EMCC European Quality Award (EQA) at Senior Practitioner level.

There are five modules altogether but you do not have to commit to the full degree programme until the end of module 3. For module 1 you will have two options: Coaching for Organisational Consultants or Team Coaching for Consultants. As both of these modules are Open Programmes, you may choose just to start with one of these and then sign up for the degree if you would like to go further.

After completing Modules 1 and 2, Module 3 enables you to prepare to become an Accredited Coach with Ashridge Accreditation. This popular certification has been helping coaches to excel since 2002.

What will you learn?

During the programme you will:

• Be introduced to the latest models and perspectives
• Learn about the relational approach to consulting
• Develop and broaden your coaching and mentoring skills
• Develop greater self-awareness enabling you to use your experience whilst coaching others
• Benchmark your approaches as a coach
• Understand and be informed by theoretical frameworks that support effective coaching
• Practice both familiar and new coaching skills and interventions
• Acquire a personal vision of your own coaching work
• Become part of a diverse and experienced community of coaches

How you will learn

The programme reflects Ashridge's philosophy about the nature of change and learning. You will be learning in an environment of reflection and experimentation, rather than simply relying on didactic input. The learning experience draws on the principles of adult learning and development and is well-grounded in research.

It is delivered through short teaching inputs on coaching theories and models, combined with small and large group discussions. Each module also includes 'co-coaching' with fellow participants as well as live supervision. In the second year, the programme delivery becomes a collective and deeper inquiry into the main elements of coaching: the coach, the client, the relationship and the organisation.

Start dates:

March, May & October.

Do you seek to make a unique contribution to our understanding of organisations and communities, and of the dynamics of stability and change? Are you an experienced and reflective practitioner interested in developing yourself and your practice, through the discipline of 'Action Inquiry'?

Are you interested in doing your research in close collaboration with the support of a community of like-minded practitioners?

If yes, then the Ashridge Doctorate in Organisational Change will be of interest to you.

Through a rigorous process of inquiry, this qualification will develop your practice to a deeper level. As organisations face the need to respond to ever more diverse and challenging issues, practitioners must develop new ways of working with complex and uncertain situations in pursuit of purposes and outcomes that matter to them.

Programme content

The programme takes a philosophical approach, rather than offering the standard toolkit. It challenges you to explore your implicit and explicit assumptions and the implications of those assumptions for your practice.

Programme content is immediately applicable back to your workplace and you are encouraged to share your personal experiences with fellow participants so that everyone learns from each other. You will develop the discipline and skill of reflective writing through practical assignments. The dissertation is an opportunity for an extended practical inquiry with the support of your tutor and peers (in the supervision group).

This programme will help you:

Practice in your chosen field with a level of mastery appreciated by peers and clients
Critically evaluate and enhance your professional knowledge
Understand and convey ways in which knowledge is constructed in the social phenomenon of organisations and in the practice of consulting and how such knowledge is used to influence learning and organisational transformation
Appreciate and demonstrate the ethical aspects of influencing in organisational settings as they apply to the individuals engaged, the organisation involved and the wider contextual socio-ecological systems.

The Ashridge Doctorate in Organisational Change:

Next starting in March 2017, the doctoral programme duration is up to five years. The programme includes the first modules of our acclaimed Masters in Organisational Change and then continues beyond this in the later stages to a doctoral level.

Change agents are facing volatile disruption in the world. This provides risks for many and opportunities for those that can sense, seize and adapt effectively. Read more
Change agents are facing volatile disruption in the world. This provides risks for many and opportunities for those that can sense, seize and adapt effectively. Many change practitioners have realized that change and innovation is predominantly a socio-technological phenomenon and that the standard approaches don't work back in their organisations.

This two-year part-time program has been designed by experienced practitioners to meet the needs of their peers. You will explore different perspectives on organisations, change and new approaches grounded in years of practical experience as well as sound academic research.

Program content

You will gain a deeper understanding of the global challenges and issues that are shaping the territory of change. You will discover how a change agent can intervene complex systems, co-create cultures of change and innovation for a better world, and be given practical tools to help lead change and innovation back in the workplace. Ashridge encourages a step change in our participants' practice based on three things: a better understanding of the global challenges and trends and how this impacts their organisations a better understanding of change in complex systems and how to set the conditions for change and innovation a disciplined focus on application and how to work with change and innovation, accelerated through the practice of action research.

Who is the program for

The program is designed for leaders that realize we are going through a period of considerable challenges of disruption and sustainability. Typically participants will be experienced leaders, senior managers, executive coaches, consultants or facilitators. We welcome practitioners who are not interested in imposing change but rather willing to explore new avenues of making 'good' change and innovation on a system and organisational level.

Benefits to your organisation

For 20 years the Masters in Organisational Change has been supporting leaders and consultants to make a step change in their capability as enablers of organisational change and organisational development. The program is constantly evolving to address the increasing complexity and demands of organisational life. It has been designed for people interested in reflecting seriously on their work and impact as change practitioners.
