In this captivating episode of Coaching Uncaged Animas Centre Director Robert Stephenson is joined by Head of Social Impact at Animas Emma Koubayssi as they dive into all things social impact and explore the new Creating Space initiative that is poised to roll out its second wave shortly.

Emma details her background around social impact, sharing some of the big campaigns and projects she worked on around the world. Projects often focused on making an impact on young people, health and education. Emma also shares her own definition of Social Impact and the work being done around finding Animas’ own definition of what social impact means to us as an organisation.

Robert and Emma also explore Creating Space, sharing what the programme is, who it’s for, how it came about, what we want to achieve with the initiative and the benefits for teachers joining the Creating Space programme. 

Emma also touches on the reception of the programme from both the coaching and teaching communities, some of the challenges behind getting such a big project off the ground, as well as detailing some of the learnings from the first wave, and the subsequent tweaks that will make the programme even more impactful.

Finally, Emma shares her big vision for the Creating Space project, namely creating a culture of coaching within the education system, as well as detailing some of the other social impact initiatives on the horizon including the much anticipated Animas Impact Incubator that will aim to support the Animas community to create, take part in and run their own impact initiatives.

The Coaching Supervision Podcast - Theory and Practice Brought to Life

If you're a coach or coaching supervisor, this podcast is for you.

Combining short reflections on practice issues facing coaches and interviews with leading coaching supervisors, the podcast takes you on a journey in to the practice of coaching supervision.

As a coach, the podcast serves to develop your "internal supervisor" - that quiet voice that helps you make sense of your practice, notice in the moment and deepen your practice through positive self-questioning.

As a supervisor, the podcast will explore a wide range of supervision concepts and contexts that might enable new ways to work, point to resources and books to explore and examine how supervision shows up in different ways.

This is the world's first podcast dedicated to coaching supervision and the art of becoming a truly reflective coach.

We hope you enjoy the episodes.
