Paperback / Softback




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. 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

Coaching and Mentoring Supervision is the definitive text for coaching supervisors, supervisees and those working toward qualifications in coaching supervision. It will also be of value both to HR professionals and those participating in mentoring programmes.

“This book is written in a lucid and interesting manner so the chapters are easy to read individually and allow readers to pick their own path through the knowledge and experience that this textbook contains. I expect that this book will become an essential source for those seeking qualification in coaching supervision.”
