Dr Susie Warman: Research and creativity

Session on 24 November 2020 23:30 UTC - View on timetable


Coaching Supervision is so open and free that permits the innovation of different creative techniques that can produce deep insights to the supervisee. Getting away from the thinking process, and permitting ourselves activate our unconsciousness into something visible can open many sensitive doors. I have discovered that the more creative these methods are, the more fun the learning can be. Also, creativity permits our minds to go far away into deep reflections where we can find answers to many of our blind spots.

When we use creative tools in Supervision we bring out our whole selves to the session. Our level of energy, emotions, moods, worries show up in a such powerful way, that self-confidence and vulnerability appear. Research has proven that the effect of being “Creative” in Supervision can be the increase in energy, enhance intuition, inner confidence, vulnerability, and deep learnings.

I began doing some research based on data from our own Supervisors network. My objective is to understand what does it require from us as Supervisors to feel confident to bring creative techniques into our sessions and to have our colleagues share their own creative techniques and use of metaphors. I will share with you some of the results I have up to now. I will also share some creative techniques I have utilized and have been very effective.

The presentation will be interactive and would love to have everyone share and listen to each other´s creative experiences.

Learning outcomes:

  • Create a meaningful space for reflection and sharing
  • Share different “creative “techniques to bring the whole self of the Supervisor and Supervisee into a meaningful session.
