A practical guide to supervision

For coaches who are either new to the idea of supervision, or who may be sceptical about it, a new book, Coaching Supervision, gives a definitive guide to the purpose, relevance and value of supervision.

The book, by David Clutterbuck, Carol Whitaker and Michelle Lucas, sets out clear guidelines for coaches who want to know more about what supervision involves, how to find a supervisor, what makes an effective supervisor, and how to make the most of their supervision through preparation and reflection.

I’ve contributed to the book with a discussion of my Three Pillars of Supervision, which emerged from my doctoral research. I also talk about this model of supervision in a short video on my How Alison works page, and see a diagram of the model here.
