All of us on the HKICC Management team hope that you are having a great start to the year and wish you peace and joy during the upcoming Chinese New Year holiday.
We have 2 special announcements we would like to make before the holiday starts:

Coaching Supervision – what is it?
I have been involved in training coach supervisors internationally, for seven years. In this article I want to outline the key functions and benefits of coaching supervision, highlight some of the main features of supervision training, and indicate how to choose a coach supervisor.

Coaching supervision is a distinct practice and has developed in consultation with many coaches; it continues to embrace new learning and methodology, and to be in dialogue with coaches, coach trainers and employers of coaches.

Once upon a time there was a tiger cub whose mother died during labour. A herd of goats took him amongst themselves and he grew up thinking and acting like a goat. One day an older tiger chased the goats and caught one of them. The young tiger, not sensing any danger, did not feel the urge to run. The old tiger was surprised to see this young tiger walking, talking and acting like a goat. He wanted to show him his true nature and took him to a pond to watch his reflection. The young tiger was not impressed.
