Forms of Supervision

Supervision might be:

Individual supervision– it is an one-on-one consulting process for professionals working in different fields, who are facing complex work related situations and willing to solve them.

Issues that can be addressed in an individual supervision process:

  • conflicts at work and search for possible solutions;
  • search of professional identity;
  • resistance to changes or going through the process of change at work;
  • building new competences and professional roles;
  • self – realisation at work.

Group supervision – it is a consulting process for groups. The group could be composed from 3 up to 12 participants, who are not related to each other, but are coming from similar fields of work or taking the same level positions in their organisations.

Issues that can be addressed in a group supervision process:

  • „Burning“ working situations;
  • Analysis of unsolved and complex problems (situations with clients, colleagues or managers);
  • Strengthening professional and personal competencies;
  • Raising the quality of work and job satisfaction;
  • Coping with emotional distress at work.

Team supervision – it is a consulting process for a specific team in order to improve their mutual communication and cooperation as well as raise their efficiency.

Team – it’s a group of people, united by the same goal. Team members are responsible to fulfill complex, interrelated tasks, at the same time having separate individual assignments. 

Issues that can be addressed in a team supervision process:

  • Internal and external communication of the team.
  • Creating the conflict resolution culture based on constructive exchange of criticism;
  • Team mobilisation;
  • Improvement of team results;
  • Roles and relationship within the team;
  • Competition within the team;
  • Effective use of resources (e.g. meetings, time management);
  • Improvement of working atmosphere.

Organisation supervision – it’s a consulting process for a specific organization in order to optimize their work, to plan changes in the structure or to develop it’s activities.

Different forms of supervision could be carried out in parallel in one organisation, involving different supervisors at the same time. For example, management team supervision, department supervision as well as individual supervision could be implemented at the same time in one organisation.
