Thursday and Friday saw me in Leeds with my friend and colleague Becky, on a Coaching Supervision course.
What a restorative couple of days it was too. I met up with some amazing fellow coaches, who have the same outlook on life and coaching as me. We all work for the NHS around Yorkshire in largely similar roles, but with different professional backgrounds.
It was just lovely to meet new people that share my passion for coaching and supporting people. When we are busy in our little silos it is easy to get wrapped up in ourselves and the issues where we work. When you meet up with people from around the region, you realise the problems you thought were unique are shared by others, and you notice you are not alone.
I had a wonderful 2 days and made some excellent connections that will support me on my coaching journey.
The content of the course is also worth a mention. So far this has been one of the most useful courses I have been on and has given me the confidence to get supervising coaches and at the same time helped me reflect on my coaching practice. Being in the presence of expert coaches is so restorative and inspiring. I am really looking forward to the next 2 days.
