As a coachee or supervisee we can think we are ready to take a metaphorical plunge into a professional or personal issue with our coach or supervisor. We may even arrive in the session with great intention. And then find the water is just too cold and painfully uncomfortable to take the next step. Remembering a cold morning swim, Doug explores how we can create the right conditions for us to ‘take the plunge’.
Liz and Doug introduce their concept of Super-Vision for coaches: a reflective learning partnership born out of the upheaval of our times. They reflect on conversations they have had with various leaders and clients and ask: What does this mean for how our coachees lead their people? What does it mean for how we coach them in the emerging, evolving “new normal”? And how can Super-Vision help us adjust to and lear from this new world?
