In supervision we are working with issues that our coach/client brings to us. The coach invites us to explore what might be happening to their coaching client, to themselves, and between the two of them. The way in which the coach engages with us in supervision may also reflect what is happening in the overall organisational system. In this experiential demonstration, Alison will work with a small group of volunteers to explore a specific client situation. We will consider what might be happening within the supervision group that reflects any parallel process possibly operating in the coach/client/organisational system and the insights that these give the coach to inform how they proceed with their coachee to meet their objectives, and noticing how these may be impacted by the organisational system and context.
