As we move into autumn, we are glad to see so much activity in coaching and supervision. The most recent - and very successful - on-line summit over 24 hours, was hosted by the Climate Coaching Alliance.

7 years of
'Full Spectrum Supervision'

Last week we celebrated CSA's book 'Full Spectrum Supervision', It continues to take its place in coaching supervision literature. It paved the way to look at supervision through a wider lens, opening the practice to fields beyond coaching, and addresses the foundational elements of coaching supervision, leaving the reader both informed and resourced.
