October 18,2021: Loyalty @ work: how to use loyalty as a catalyst for self-reflection in SuperVision with Thea Bombeek, PMC, ESIA
Your family of origin is your first context. This is where you get a blueprint of the important life themes. There you learn to deal with good and bad, recognition and punishment, power and authority, self-validation, and self-demarcation. You get experiences in how to cope with tensions and conflicts, and how loyalties and legacies work. This happens both consciously and unconsciously. With this blueprint, you enter your work context both as a coach and supervisor.
Why do your clients and supervisees always seem to bring similar topics to your own? What about your own choice of becoming a coach? How have your professional choices been influenced by your desire to respond to the expectations of your parents? Possibly (invisible) loyalties to your family of origin are playing tricks on you.
In this lecture, you discover these underlying processes and patterns… and their impact on your (career) choices and that of your clients. It helps you to make conscious choices when dealing with professional challenges in a more constructive way. It will increase your effectiveness. Living more in alignment with your essence and at the same time staying loyal to your family will create inner peace. It will give meaning to your life. Furthermore, the insights you gain from this lecture will help you to address these themes with your coachees and supervisees.
