Just like the coaching relationship, supervision is most successful when it is a collaborative endeavour, with both parties clear on their roles and the process. Coaching Supervision is an intensely practical book providing guidance on when, why and how to seek supervision, and on how coaches can make the most of the supervision they receive.
Written by experienced supervisors who have a deep understanding of the field, and drawing on research into good practice internationally, this book:
Explains what supervision is and how it differs from other `helping conversations'
Provides a step by step approach to choosing a supervisor
Advises on how to structure the coach/mentor development journey
Explores a breadth of activities that enhance reflective practice
Shows how supervision is an integral element of professional coaching and mentoring
This practical guide will be vital reading for all established and trainee coaches and mentors participating in the supervision process, either as supervisors or supervisees.
