1 hour sessions from:
0800, 1200 and 1800
Our aim at South West Councils is to support the region in creating a coaching culture that helps individuals realise their potential and organisations achieve outstanding results.
The South West Coaching Pool has established a growing network of coaches and, through collaboration, will maximise the sharing of coaching resources across organisations through a shared service, shared cost approach.
This Group Supervision session aims to support coaches keen to maintain and improve the quality of their coaching.
Members of South West Coaching and Mentoring Pool benefit from the corporate membership to the Association for Coaching, which provides a Group Supervision service on the third Thursday of every month. The calls are held via video link or low-cost teleconference line and are facilitated by experienced AC Coaches who donate an hour of their time to support fellow members. The calls last up to one hour with a maximum of five participants.
The Group Supervision calls are designed to offer members an experience of supervision. Through attending a call members have:
•The opportunity to experience supervision
•Access to the benefits of supervision in a group setting
•An opportunity to connect with other AC members
•A setting in which client work and ethical issues can be explored
•The chance to work with a highly experienced call host
Participation in these calls counts towards your annual Continuous Professional Development. They are designed as a supervision taster and are not intended to replace full professional supervision.
The theme for the 08:00 call only, will be:
BEING CREATIVE IN COACHING
Creativity is generally considered a vital skill for success in the 21st century. As coaches, we need not only to be creative in our approaches with clients, but also to foster creativity within our clients.
But what exactly is creativity? It is an elusive spark that can be difficult to define, and can be viewed in many ways, for instance as a gift bestowed on us; a skill to exercise; a technique to learn; or a choice to make.
In this supervision session, we invite you to bring your coaching client stories, questions and dilemmas where you feel creativity plays an important part.
