Artists of all sorts are masters at presence. In this webinar, we will explore what it means to be a coach who is an artist and how supervision expands our awareness. We will use stories and metaphors from the arts to expand how we see ourselves and our clients. One might say, “I am not an artist”. If so, this webinar is for you! No drawing skills required!
Using my own poetry and photography as well as sources from well-known artists, I will invite you into seeing our work through the eyes and ears of art and the creating of art.
Attempt to understand what art is.
Explore seeing more completely.
Attempt to understand why metaphor and story are essential to great work.
Begin applying lessons from art to our work as coaches and coach supervisors.
