Österreichische Vereinigung für Supervision


What is Coaching?

Coaching is a special kind of supervision that is primarily aimed at individuals with executive functions. The competence of the coach is based on a comprehensive and ÖVS accredited supervision course. Coaching operates with a specific objective, method and approach. Typical features are the topic-related support sessions encompassed in a limited number of consultations, as well as the transmission of personal skills in short training units.

Coaching offers:

  • Advice in executive and management tasks
  • Incentives for shaping the executive role
  • Development of your personal performance (e.g. giving presentations)
  • Support during periods of structural change and in crisis situations
  • Help with your personal career planning

Coaching is best described as a kind of “navigational aid“ for professional life. The responsible executive verifies the course and explores the environment, gets the necessary support, and questions things that apparently go without saying.
