Doug and Liz discuss the variety of topics they have encountered in their Super-Vision groups. They explain how group Super-Vision can benefit leaders, coaches, and HR professionals. Accessing the collective wisdom of the group allows participants to realise the other options available to them.
Our reflection sessions use images of the seasons to encourage self-awareness, drawing on the metaphors of each season as a way of relating to and accessing participants’ inner worlds. Although…
We all have one view of the world. Our view of the world. And we tend to stick with our narrative and interpretations, which we carry into the workplace.

In response to the recent article in HR Magazine titled “HR in post-COVID burnout”, we share how we are supporting HR professionals with our “HR Super-Vision” groups.
“My finger was hovering over the key, my heart was racing, my stomach tightening into a small tight knot, my toes curling, my eyes looking away from the screen.

Human Resources seem to be increasingly responsible for the conscience of the company and for the health and well-being of the organisation, and are often required to navigate multiple simultaneous relationships with line managers, leadership teams, exec boards, and individuals. Whilst professional qualifications support employment legalities and important processes and procedures, it seems to us that there is little in place to support the personal growth of the HR professional as they manage a broad range and depth of relationships and boundaries with complex human content. Liz and Doug explain how a coaching relationship can help HR professionals.
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?
How do we empathise with and support clients who are going through bereavement? Doug discussses Dr Kathryn Mannix’s book ‘With the End in Mind – How to Live and Die Well’ and how Mannix’s suggestions have contribued to his own practice.
