Workshop 2 "Training effective supervisors: Warm heart, sharp sword" - Jo Birch and Louie Gardiner (CSA Coaching Supervision Academy)
What is needed now in our supervisor training programmes? How do we ‘train’ and enable coaching supervisors to hold professional clarity and hold uncertainty with ease; find stillness whilst embracing chaos; embody love and respect amidst a sea of disturbance, division and separation? Effective, confident supervisors bring a precious resource to coaches who experience daily the gigantic wave of VUCA distress in the system.

Louie is an experienced, wholehearted practitioner, working across contexts, cultures and generations. She invites people to embrace, navigate and 'dance' with the complexity of life’s opportunities and challenges.
