Many professions now view supervision as integral to the promotion of best and ethical practice. It was often assumed that becoming a supervisor or manager simply evolved out of experience and clinical practice, without the recognition or support that these positions carry an additional skills set in their own right. This training teaches the skills required to become an confident and competent supervisor with a renewed enthusiasm for the work. Each module introduces the key language and skills that lie at the core of a good supervisory practice, and explores these concepts through case control and experiential learning out of a transpersonal psychological model.

Personal and Professional Development
In order to build a deep capacity for self-reflection the training explores both the personal and professional development of the supervisee and that of the supervisor. This enhances the ability to handle unconscious triggers, hidden wounds and relationship conflicts that impact on the professional work, creating a compassionate container where the supervision can be both a robust and enjoyable experience for supervisor and supervisee alike.

Multidimensional
The training addresses the multidimensional process of supervision. It explores how understanding the simultaneous interactions between the clients, supervisee, supervisor, organisation and wider culture or context is important in order to have an awareness of the complete picture.

Process Skills
Using each participant’s own therapeutic model we intergrate the core skill of a ‘mindful observing gaze’ in order to track the multidimential processes that are an ongoing aspect of supervision. In this way it becomes possible to inentify where the heart of the process lies in the moment.

Supervisory Relationship/Style
This training will deepen participants’ understanding and experience of the supervisory relationship and how the style of a supervisor can be used with awareness to suport the reflective practice of the supevisee.

Organisational and Cultural Change
Supervision happens within, and is impacted by, the organisational and cultural context. This training will provide a map and tools for understanding this context. It will show how supervision can become a powerful catalyst to enable engagement with the diversity of any organisation in order to bring about cultural change.

We are all leaders in some way, and it is important to understand what underlies effectiveleadership. This training teaches the process skills needed to be able to sit in the heat of challenging teams, groups or organisations. Understanding process dynamics inherent in any group is essential to be able to lead well and with confidence. In this way the task is completed more efficiently and working in a team can become a collaborative and enjoyable experience.

A good leader is also the servant of the group, seeking to discover and to bring out its diversity and wisdom. Without such a process gaze, we run the risk of becoming a ‘wounded leader’, using the power inherent in the leadership position to defend against our blindspots, and to oppress others. We may also fail to address disruptive dynamics in the group that might be building up in the background, such as signs of burn out or conflict. 

In contrast, understanding and having the skills to facilitate the complexity and multiple aspects of the leadership role is central in order to lead and manage with wisdom and integrity. 

These process skills are for leaders in named positions of power, and for those in any group situation where we find ourselves momentarily stepping into positions of ‘participant leader’. The skills are also relevant for all those interested in contributing towards cultural change, in becoming ‘the leader we want to see in the world’.

The fundamental process skills of a leader include some of the following:

  • Understanding one’s own history, including blindspots and triggers, in order to lead with impeccability and openness.
  • Understanding relationship style and dynamics so that all feel included, empowered and energised.
  • Understanding the dynamics of power and conflict so that diversity is welcomed in a win-win atmosphere rather than fostering unhealthy competition, oppression or bullying.
  • Understanding the ‘political’ structure inherent in any team, group and organisation, to be able to read and name such process signals and to facilitate the group dynamics. Such informed facilitation enables increased contact and allows the team, group and organisation to discover its own wisdom and new solutions.
