Event date has passed

This unique, highly experiential, practical two-day workshop teaches participants how to deepen and expand their supervision skills and take their supervision practice to advanced levels. It uses carefully selected frameworks and tools for more experienced supervisors, leaders and managers, and a State of Being approach to supervision, where relationship is placed at the heart of supervision. The workshop is offered at the Melbourne Zoo, an exceptional learning environment that provides full catering and plenty of opportunity to enjoy and relax in the surroundings. Participants receive a comprehensive Learner Guide and a Course Certificate upon completion of the two days.

Learning culture

Whilst many supervision programs offer expert knowledge and skilled facilitation, which are essential for good training, our Supervision and State of Being workshops take supervision training to another level. Participants tell us again and again that the way we connect with and engage them in their learning journey, and the attention we pay to the workshop culture and environment itself, results in an exceptional learning experience for them. Why? Firstly, by painstakingly designing every workshop from an adult learning, strengths based and holistic perspective, participants are readily able to connect with and apply traditional and innovative frameworks and tools in their own way to their supervision practice. Through safe, affirming, purposeful and expertly guided experiential, didactic, peer-to-peer and self-reflective learning, participants grow their skills so that by the time they leave the workshop they are genuinely enriched by the experience. Secondly, because we know that the physical environment is what sustains and uplifts us, we pay as much attention to our choice of venue as everything else. Without fresh air, natural light, healthy, delicious food, and the space to move around and be ourselves, we don’t function at our best. Incorporating this knowledge into our program results in higher quality learning
