Dr Alison Hodge is an accredited Executive Coach at Master Practitioner level with EMCC and an accredited Executive Coaching Supervisor with APECS. Working globally as a coaching supervisor with individuals and groups of both internal and external executive coaches, she co-creates working agreements to explore their practice, their client work and their on-going professional well-being. Alison teaches on the MSc in Coaching & Mentoring at Sheffield Hallam University and supervises supervisors-in-training at CSA (Coaching Supervision Academy). She completed her DProf in Coaching Supervision at Middlesex University in 2014. She is particularly interested in the relational phenomena that arise in supervision and how this can inform the supervisee about their own process with their client relationships as well as what may be occurring in their individual and organisational client systems.


Whether we’re external coaches or part of an internal coaching team within an organisation, the client/coach relationship is created alongside many other interconnected relationships: ¬ HR, line management, coaching sponsor, consultancy sponsor, coaching supervisor. So how do we negotiate these diverse connections to ensure that we manage the expectations of everyone as transparently and ethically as possible? In addition to the business contract that needs to be agreed, how do we manage the professional and psychological contracts to ensure our work is effective for our client/s?

In this experiential session, working with a complex case study, there will be the opportunity for people to participate practically. Alison will explore the diverse elements involved in co-creating this vital contract between the coach and the coachee alongside all the other contracts that need to be explored and agreed within the wider system.
