Event description
Group Supervision Experimentation Labs

About this event

Greenfields Supervision Experimentation Labs are the group supervision equivalent of the AOCS Co-Supervision Space events which focus on individual supervision techniques.

They offer the opportunity to crack the "catch 22" problem of who we practice new techniques with, other than our existing clients. Group supervision Experimentation labs offer you a more ethical and robust alternative.

Three group supervision techniques from my recently edited book (101 Coaching Supervision Techniques, Approaches, Enquiries and Experiments) will be offered by way of preparation. The session will start in plenary with brief introductions and contracting for the work to come. We will organise attendees into small groups of 4-6 who will stay together for an hour. Here each person will take a turn at holding and facilitating the group with a supervision technique of their choice. There will be a short plenary where participants can share learning before taking a 15 minute break. On return groups will be shuffled so that delegates get a second chance to practice - perhaps a different technique, or the same technique with a different group dynamic. Learning from the whole workshop will be shared in a final plenary before closing.

Coming together for one morning a quarter during 2022, you will have the opportunity to practice techniques in a safe environment, to extend your skills and to get genuinely candid and developmental feedback from your peers.

Who is it for?

Supervisors who are comfortable holding the group supervision space and who want a place where they can deepen and extend their practice.

Supervisors who take an abundant approach to sharing knowledge within our professional community, and to developing and continuously improving professional competence, standards, and learning.

Supervisors who want to connect, collaborate, consolidate, and continue to learn together.

Supervisors who have access to their own supervision should matters remain unresolved as a result of the experimentation with peers

How would it work?

Members will meet virtually (Zoom) for a maximum of 180 minutes (pausing half way through for a 15 minute break)

We will host sessions quarterly, on a Tuesday from 14:00 to 17:15 (GMT)

(note we recognise this time slot will only work for Europe and Australasia; if you are interested in this opportunity but are based in North America please contact michelle@greenfieldsconsultancy.co.uk directly, depending on numbers a separate event can be organised)

The themes for each 2022 Group Supervision Experimentation Lab are:

8th March 2022 – Eclectic

17th May 2022 – Existential, Gestalt, Person Centred

26th July 2022 - Positive Psychology, Developmental TA, Solution Focused

11th October 2022 - Systemic, Thinking Environment, Transpersonal

Michelle Lucas will host the Group Supervision Experimentation Lab and will introduce the techniques. However, this is not a training session on the psychological philosophy or highlighted techniques. The spirit of the Experimentation Lab is a shared space for experiential learning amongst equals who are catalysts for self-directed learning

The focus of the Group Supervision Experimentation Labs is for the supervisor to experiment with new techniques and receive feedback. Given the work will be in service of the learning, the supervisee may well leave with unfinished business. We therefore strongly recommend participants have access to their own supervisor and ensure they follow up any incomplete or unresolved issues professionally and independently of this Greenfields event.

Each session is priced at £125+ VAT for non members and £100 + VAT for AOCS members. Attendees will receive a discount code to purchase the book

There will be four sessions per year which can be purchased as a package for £400 + VAT Those purchasing the package of 4 will get a complimentary print copy of the book 101 Coaching Supervision Techniques, Approaches, Enquiries and Experiments (RRP £26.99)

What are the anticipated outcomes?

Our aspirations for the group are:

A community of engaged professional coaching supervisors who take an ethical approach to extending their skills, choosing to hone their practice with their fellow supervisors before they use them with their supervisees.

A rich and generous sharing of knowledge and experience with techniques for individual supervision.

A trusted network of experienced colleagues to turn to for peer practice outside of the Group Supervision Experimentation Labs

Organizer Michelle Lucas

Organizer of Group Supervision Experimentation Lab

Michelle Lucas runs Greenfields Consulting Limited - a small consultancy specialising in Executive Coaching, Coaching Supervision and Coach Development.

Michelle is an Accredited Executive Master Coach and an Accredited Coaching Supervisor.  Her background in Psychology and HR means she offers sharp insight into individual differences, organisational systems and the interplay between the two. Whilst essentially person centred in her work she is also a pragmatist who believes sometimes others can see what you cannot see for yourself.  She will carefully offer her insight to mobilise the process of self-discovery.  She is an eclectic supervisor using creative and systemic approaches alongside both structured and emergent dialogue.

She has authored two coaching supervision books published by Routledge and in 2020 was the sole editor of 101 Coaching Supervision Techniques also by Routledge. She is emerging as a thought leader in the Coaching Supervision field and has been a speaker at every annual International Supervision Conference at Oxford Brookes University since 2010.
