The Supervisor's Compass: Contracts, Contracting and Re-Constracting

A Masterclass for Coaches & Supervisors from the Association of Coaching Supervisors by Michelle Lucas and Carol Whitaker

Outline: As supervisors we have probably been asked more than once “what would you do?”. Inevitably our most typical reply is “it depends”! When faced with a dilemma in coaching or mentoring work it is unwise to generalise and in fact, until we understand the Contract under which the work was established, it is almost impossible to gauge how appropriate an action or intervention might be. In their work as supervisors Carol and Michelle have noticed that encouraging supervisees to un-pick a “hypothetical” dilemma gives the supervisee the opportunity to stand back and gain a positive sense of distance. This helps minimise unconscious bias and assumptions that creep in when looking at their own real issues.

Supervision is increasingly required for a coach’s and a mentor's professional development, and engaging in reflective practice with peers can be a valuable way of meeting these needs. Peer supervision brings unique challenges though, including the possibility of collusion or stagnating at a shared developmental level.

Written by practising supervisors who engage in peer supervision themselves and train communities of coaches and mentors, this book guides the reader through the opportunities and potential pitfalls of peer supervision. Grounded in theory and practice it:

  • explains the basics of coaching supervision and peer supervision
  • differentiates between peer and professional supervision
  • provides guidance on individual and group supervision arrangements
  • suggests techniques to use in peer supervision conversations
  • explores ethical issues and dilemmas in peer supervision scenarios
  • provides helpful templates, including a peer supervision contract

This practical guide will be vital reading for all established and trainee coaches and mentors who are keen to embark on peer supervision or enhance the quality of their existing peer supervision activities.
