    Leader as Healer

    Nicholas Janni’s award winning book ‘Leader as Healer’, powerfully supports coaches and supervisors’ work with leaders. CSA trained supervisors support the development of this level of ‘holistic intelligence’, in their work with leaders and coaches: 

    ‘We need to reintegrate our physical, emotional, and transpersonal natures back into our work lives…

    To face the scope and threats of 21st-century challenges, today’s leaders must possess potent powers for logic, reason, discernment, and strategic forecasting. Yet, they must also be empathic and therefore embodied; grounded and therefore intuitive. They must be skilled in mindfulness and deep listening; present and receptive to higher levels of insight and innovation; able to inspire authentic engagement and collaboration; and possess a clear and wholehearted sense of service, mission, and purpose. 

    Leadership development must therefore at a minimum embrace the following key strands:

    • Practice Embodiment

    It is no secret that great ideas coming during physical activity, from cardio to yoga. Practicing this embodiment three to four times a week, even just a walk in nature, can quite literally bring you back to your senses. Making time in the week to pay attention to your sense of physicality will help you strengthen your presence and intuition. Do this as much as possible – before and after zoom meetings for instance. You will feel and come over as much more Present

    • Emotional integration

    Stifling emotions at work is creating unpredictable behaviour and negatively impacts on productivity. We need to understand that there is no such a thing as ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ emotion, and we don’t need to ‘fix it’. Create safe circumstances with colleagues to acknowledge emotions at work, be that fear, sadness, anger, or joy. 

    • Mindfulness

    Practicing mindfulness throughout the day expands one’s bandwidth of perception and deepens the capacity for embodied presence. You can use sensations of breathing and your feet touching the ground to as inner anchors of attention. Mindfulness is about learning to pay inner and outer attention at the same time. As you apply this practice, you will notice how much more present you feel and how much better you listen.’

    by CSA Accredited Supervisor Carrie Lynn Arnold 

    In the age of multiple equity movements, it is critical to explore an unspoken nuance - the silencing of women leaders. Carrie Lynn Arnold calls attention to the history and complex dynamics that can suppress a leader's voice while offering solutions for change. Women are taught to speak up, develop confidence, leverage their strengths, polish their interpersonal skills, widen their competencies, and fight to sit at the table. But once they make it to that executive chair, they rarely examine the unspoken dynamics that impact their success.

    The silencing of female voices is an all too common epidemic, preventing women from harnessing their full capabilities and leading with maximum potential. This phenomenon of isolating women by subduing their voices is a decades-old tradition. It can be impossible to avoid encounters, organizational cultures, and even feelings of self-suppression that all foster silencing. It is no longer about questioning competency or confidence. It is about understanding the complex factors and biases that are deeply embedded in relationships between men and women, amongst women, and within the dynamics of systems and the self that allows for this trend to continue despite growing successes in equity.

    Carrie Lynn Arnold examines silencing, which is essential to name and recognize, as a pre-requisite to effective leadership. By understanding where we have been before, we may fully appreciate and call attention to where we need to go. Regardless of your gender or whether you are an emerging leader or a CEO of a large corporation, the silencing virus is capable of infecting everyone. Silenced and Sidelined explores what it means to feel suppressed, giving words to the experience so that leaders can begin different types of conversations about voice and leadership. There are no shortcuts or simple, easy steps; this call to leadership is a call for courage. It requires the ability to communicate with a voice that carries currency-one, people will not just hear, but follow. Given the complexity of our world and the challenges society faces, we can no longer afford leaders with silenced voices.

    Mindfulness-Based Relational Supervision by Fiona Adamson and Jane Brendgen

    Mindfulness-Based Relational Supervision explores a relational and mindfulness-based approach to adult learning and development that is mutually transformational.

    The initial focus of the book is a case study that shows the evolution of a dialogical supervision relationship that was transformational for both parties. The authors present their reflections and analysis of key transformational moments that brought insights which significantly enhanced their personal and professional development. The authors adopt an interdisciplinary approach, discussing relational neurobiology and relational mindfulness practice together with ideas from child and adult development, attachment theory, intersubjectivity, somatic experiencing, and adult learning theories.

    The case study narrative charts the development of the authors’ supervision relationship, following which they share a meta-perspective on their learning journey. Finally, they discuss the implications of the study for the education and training of relational practitioners in supervision, coaching, and related fields.

    The book will appeal to students, practitioners and supervisors in the helping professions, in particular counselling, psychotherapy, and coaching.
