Using supervision to support and enhance professional practice and avoid burnout

Session Summary:

“In supervision we rewrite our stories of our practice. It wakes us up to what we are doing”

Sheila Ryan in ‘Vital Practice” 2004

In this session we explore what supervision is, how it works, and why it is so critical for people who work with people, to ensure sustained wise, courageous, creative and compassionate professional practice without burnout. 

The Coaching Supervision Academy has been established for 14 years and is the top international provider of supervision training and supervision to Executive Coaches, Human Resource, Organisational Development, Leaders, Educators and People Professionals. Relationship with self, other and the wider context of practice is placed at the heart of the supervisory inquiry, because WHO you are is HOW you work.
