Strengths-based Supervision - Parallel Practice

2 days | cost $420 | 16 & 17 Jan

When we stop to reflect about how we provide supervision, it is in fact a reflection of the way we would be working with clients.

In this workshop we will work with the principals of Strengths-based Practice and, as is the flavour of all my workshops, we will explore the quality of what we offer those who we supervise.  What are our foundations or strengths that others can rely on and how do we model these?

We will explore difficult conversations, setting standards and goals for your teams and the importance and power of appreciation in our work.

This workshop will suit those working in any supervisory role be it in Family, Disability, Health, Housing or Education including Childcare services.
