An AOCS NW Group Workshop

Are you a practitioner who wants to continue your professional development to offer greater support to your clients?
Next month, our Senior Coach Julia Menaul will be acting in her role of Regional Coordinator AOCS NW as she hosts an AOCS NW Group workshop ‘Embracing Complexity in Coaching Supervision’. The workshop will be led by Louie Gardiner of Potent 6.

Louie has over 25 years’ experience in the field, and has developed skills beyond conventional leadership, coaching and supervision approaches. See more in her AOCS profile.

More about the workshop content

Today, as much as ever, we and our clients face complex and uncertain times and so, understanding how we might better navigate through these using a systems perspective will expand our range and practice. This one day workshop introduces theory and principles of complex adaptive systems and illustrates how these show up and inform what happens within and between individuals. You will be introduced to new and different ways of seeing and understanding the patterns and dynamics at play in the human systems in which you find yourself.
New ways of seeing what is present within and between us: ‘3 types of change’; Adaptive Action
Understanding ‘patterns’ and what creates them: complex adaptive systems in motion; CDE

Playing with meaning-making: the ‘Four Truths’, multiple realities and multiple options for action
Turning possibilities into pathways: seeking coherence over certainty: introducing the Potent 6 Constellation

A recent Coaching Today article gives a helpful overview of the focus of the workshop which has been designed with coach supervisors in mind, as well as dual trained coach/therapists, conflict mediators/ facilitators and more experienced coaches. Expect to leave with some simple models, methods and metaphors for understanding human system dynamics that can be applied immediately in your practice.
