Over that time, he has overseen the development of EMCC’s supervision standards and has supported the development of EMCC’s supervision accreditations.

On hearing of his award, Tom Battye said ‘Over the past ten years, I have enjoyed contributing to the world of supervision in several ways. However, I have obtained the most satisfaction and pleasure from my role as EMCC Global WorkGroup leader for supervision, supporting both quality and accreditation standards. The WorkGroup that I lead operates as a team, so I would like to accept the award on behalf of past and present members. We are committed to the on-going project of defining best practice and promoting awareness of supervision around the world, and I welcome contact from anyone who feels they are able to support this activit. Thank you for this award, receiving it is an honour and one for which I will always be grateful.’

Peter was delighted to hear of his award and said Thank you EMCC for this award and recognition for my pioneering work in coaching supervision. It has been a long journey having first written about the importance of supervision over 40 years ago and promoting the development of coach supervision for 20 years, through talks, books, research and training coach supervisors in many parts of the world. It is very rewarding to see how coach supervision has rapidly taken off and is becoming accepted as an essential part of the life-long development of practising coaches and team coaches. A big thank you to my fellow collaborators, co-authors, my supervisors, and hundreds of supervisees all of whom continue to teach me so much.’
