Insight 01: Edna Murdoch

Registering and Resolving Systemic Impact.

What exactly do we notice when we are knocked off centre? How do we regain our balance when a client or team disables our thinking and our skills? Or when the energy in an organisation gets too oppressive?? Or when we are weakened in that vital contracting conversation? Coaches and leaders across the world face these dilemmas. Hear a radical new focus, which ensures resolution - and ensures that vital information about the system is not lost. Tips and tools for the viewer!

Insight 02: Claire Genkai Breeze

Coaching Today: From A Vintage to A Contemporary Practice.

A thirty year-old car is no longer fit for purpose as a means of transportation, even if we effectively call it vintage. Isn't it possible, asks Claire, that coaching itself needs to go through a reformation to create practices and approaches fit for the way we work today? The supervision challenge is to help coaches turn a vintage practice into a contemporary one.

Join Claire as she reflects on 30 years of coaching. These powerful insights from an original thinker will challenge you to acquire top-level personal and professional skills, fit for 21st century coaching.

Insight 03: Jackie Arnold

The Challenges facing coaches who are working with Remote and Culturally Diverse Clients & Teams.

In this video, Jackie Arnold provides many tools, tips and resources for leaders who struggle with transitioning from their role as leader to their role as coach. She focuses on how leaders can create robust professional relationships particularly when differences in language skills and feelings of disconnection may be exaggerated by distance and by video-conferencing.

Clean Language enables leaders and coaches to work successfully with diverse groups where jargon, different world-views and the nuances of language all play a part in team and group functioning. Jackie shows how to use key Clean Language questions. Powerful tools such as working with images, with metaphor and with the Magic Box are explored in this very practical video.

Insight 04: Elaine Patterson

Reflection and Reflective Practice: From Designer Luxury to the Essential Must Have.

This video shows how reflection is essential to free us as practitioners to become more creative, more courageous, more present, and more conscious as we work with our clients who are working on the frontline of today’s personal, ecological, technological, global, organisational and societal seismic shifts.

The video answers the "why bother?" question, as well as offering practical hints and tips about how we can all create the conditions to develop our own reflective practice to feed, nourish and sustain ourselves for the long haul. Elaine uses key findings from her original research, " Reflect to Create!"

Insight 05: Dr. Alison Hodge

Being Fit for Purpose.

The recurring theme that emerges with Alison’s clients in supervision is how demanding and challenging coaching can be for the coach, particularly those working in complex organisational systems.     

So how does supervision support coaches to keep fit for purpose?   Based on the findings from her doctoral research, Alison offers a new model - The Three Pillars of Supervision - that contributes to this process: the supervision relationship, an understanding of adult learning theory and an appreciation of reflective practice.  Once these pillars are established, the coach and supervisor engage in generative dialogue in which the coach is able to explore all aspects of their work that in turn enables them to flourish and grow.

Insight 06: Miriam Orriss

Transactional Analysis and the Karpman Drama Triangle.

Miriam Orriss has supervised using the TA lens, for many years; her take on TA is original and powerful. In this video, she shares some of her most important insights.  Here, you will gain a unique understanding of Transactional Analysis – and of the Karpman Drama Triangle (KDT) in particular.

Miriam uses the KDT to mirror and amplify the client’s picture of their world and to show unconscious factors at play in the boardroom  - and beyond! In this video, Miriam highlights new information about overcoming script decisions, and supplies the missing link that enables coaches and leaders to unravel repeated patterns of behaviour that block successful professional and business outcomes.
