This is a survey for supervisors. In it, members of the Global Supervisors' Network are examining supervision of supervision within coaching and mentoring. In discussing and researching this subject through the Network we realized that this is an area that has had little research completed to date. We hope to provide some baseline data that will happen us to understand this area of supervision and make recommendations related to training, practice and impact. The research explores differences and similarities between supervision of practitioners, and supervision of supervision. We also consider the skills and challenges of providing & receiving supervision of supervision. Additionally, by the very broad global scope of this research, we test cultural and geographical influences on practice.
There are two main sections. The first focuses on your supervision practice when directly supervising coaches and mentors, and also when you receive supervision as a supervisor of coaches and mentors. The second section (Q23 onwards) relates to your role in providing supervision for supervisors of coaches and mentors, if applicable.
Your responses will be treated confidentially and collated with other replies, unless you agree to being named. This permission will be sought in the questionnaire. Otherwise the responses will be aggregated and widely shared within our profession through articles and presentations at conferences.
