"Good supervision is an essential part of effective and ethical practice for coaches and mentors. This book, written by leading experts in the field of supervision, is an important contribution to the development of professional coaching and mentoring. If you are a coach, mentor or helping professional looking for a range of well-grounded perspectives on supervision this book is for you. Enjoy." Anthony M Grant PhD, Director, Coaching Psychology Unit, University of Sydney, Australia "An excellent book which brings together a range of experienced practitioners covering the subject of Coaching supervision from many different viewpoints and topics. Well written, informative and a must for anyone interested in best practice within the coaching supervision field." Gladeana McMahon, FAC, FBACP, FIMS, FISMA, FRSA.Chair of the Association for Coaching UK and Co-Director Centre for Coaching "Effective supervision is critical to the professional development of coaching, and this book is a refreshingly clear, incisive and comprehensive overview of this often neglected area. Its many wide-ranging and authoritative contributions, solidly grounded in theory yet also eminently practical and sensible, provide indispensable guidance on how appropriate supervision can enhance the competence and self-confidence of coaches and mentors. The editors have squarely confronted and clarified key conceptual and contextual issues that must be resolved if supervision is to be recognised and accepted as an essential foundation of professional practice." Sunny Stout-Rostron, DProf, Director, Manthano Institute of Learning, Cape Town, South Africa "This text is a must for those training supervisors and offers an understanding of a range of approaches which the reader can then explore in-depth elsewhere should they wish to." Anita Mountain, Teaching & Supervising Transactional Analyst "I recommend in particular the first part and Peter Hawkins’ second contribution to experienced supervisors because this is about as far or as short as supervision has come at this stage. Overall, the book contains most of the theory I expected and discusses important differences between trainee supervision and practitioner supervision while concentrating on the latter. It covers well the implications of supervisors having access to ‘reality’ only as mediated and interpreted by more or less qualified supervisees, and the authors seem one voice to insist that reflective practice is not the same as improving technical skills. While not the only book you need about supervision, it is very worthwhile reading." Paul O Olson, Chairman & owner, Nordic Heads Ltd "Inevitably and rightly recognition is given to Hawkins’ and Shohet’s seven-eyed model, which receives its own chapter. One of the pleasures of the book is reading the different variations played by others on the systems theme. In her final case study of Deloitte, Christine Champion strikes a fitting note on which to conclude, when she asserts that supervision promotes the crucial ability to work holistically, which though itself begging a definition, must be at the heart of what it means when sitting with a coach to take a systemic, super-vision." Ken Smith, freelance coach and coaching supervisor "This book presents powerful arguments for organisations to invest in coaching, coaching supervision and mentoring as development concepts for their staff. I found this book to be well connected, informative and very readable. I would certainly recommend it as an essential read to others who may be interested in exploring the need for supervision in coaching and a must to be included in any academic reading booklists." Balbir Kandola, BK Consultancy in Learning and Development This highly practical, comprehensive book reflects the increasing professionalization of coaching and mentoring, and the mounting expectation that coaches undergo regular supervision to ensure the quality and safety of their practice, and to encourage their continued professional development. The contributing authors include most of the world’s foremost authorities in the subject, who present the latest thinking in this rapidly evolving field. This is the first book to address the full spectrum of coaching and mentoring supervision. The reader gets an opportunity to compare and contrast different approaches and models, and is introduced to theory in a concise, accessible way. The book also: Clarifies what good coaching and mentoring supervision looks like in different contexts Provides practical case examples to compliment and shed light on the theoretical bases for coaching/mentoring supervision Reflects the diversity of perspectives on supervision in coaching and mentoring Explores alternative ways of delivering and using supervision Addresses the complex issue of effectiveness and quality of supervision Supervision in Coaching and Mentoring is the definitive text for coaching supervisors, supervisees and those working toward qualifications in coaching supervision. It will be of value both to HR professionals and those participating in mentoring programmes.
