'Coaching supervision enables coaches and people professionals to reflect creatively on WHO and HOW they are being in each moment and to become intelligent about the potential impact of ‘self’ in every coaching, chemistry, contracting, business or leadership conversation which they hold.

As coaches and people professionals, we need to be fully present and engaged AND yet spacious and witnessing – giving attention to what is in front of us (coachee, group or commissioning client), to what is between us (the energy and relationship between) and to what is going on inside our own systems as we work (reflecting in action and attending to our own internal supervisor)”

From a recent review -


"This book is hugely informative, visionary and engaging - by far the best I have read on supervision to date. It adds great depth and breadth to the supervision process and demonstrates very clearly how the supervisory relationship at its most effective is a learning partnership between two professionals"


5* - A must read for supervisors and coaches!
