About Transformational Supervision
With a transformational learning process we become aware both that we learn and how we learn. As a result, it brings about changes in the way we see the world and ourselves, revealing our mind maps, affecting how we feel and how we think. It involves our developing the capability to think systemically, to see the relationships and patterns that exist in our day-to-day life, work relationships and the organizations in which they take place.
Transformational learning enables us to become aware of our interconnectedness as human beings, develop open-heartedness for ourselves, those we are influenced by, and can influence, in a constantly changing flow of life events. Within a relationship built on trust and mutual respect we can learn to be still, to notice what we are experiencing in the present, and give ourselves time to respond creatively and appropriately with clients.
Practising Mindfulness and bringing a contemplative approach to reflective work in supervision supports us as we develop compassion for ourselves, for others and cease striving to be other than who we really are. The benefits of a Mindful approach include increased capacity for thinking well, more energy for life, and working more effectively.
