A Framework for Group Presence in Co-Facilitated Supervision Groups
with: CSA Faculty members Lynne De Lay, Dip. CS, ACC, and Ken Giglio, PCC, Dip. CS
Our vision is to support the wider supervision community to evolve and expand its thinking about group supervision by sharing a co-facilitated approach which evokes group presence.
We all know that presence is the essence of our work as both coaches and supervisors. Though presence is presented as a competency in some frameworks, we view it more as a capacity, a positive generative life force (essence?), which is the energetic core of who we are as people and professionals. In this webinar, we will explore what it looks like and feels like to evoke presence within ourselves, with each other, and in a group supervision format.
Group supervision is predominately offered by individual facilitator supervisors. Over the past 6+ years, we have experimented with our co-facilitated structure and approach to group supervision with coaches in open groups from around the globe. In this webinar we will share our learning and approach as part of our ongoing efforts to experiment and create new ways to evolve our co-facilitated approach to evoke group presence. Using music as a metaphor, this webinar builds on our co-authored chapter in “Coaching Supervision: Voices from the Americas,” titled, A Framework for Group Presence in Co-Facilitated Supervision Groups.
In our 90-minute interactive webinar, which will allow time for reflection and presence at the individual and group levels, we offer these key learning objectives
