The term "supervision" describes the process by which the work of the coach/mentor is overseen and advice/guidance is sought. The process may differ in significant ways from that undertaken in other professions, such as psychotherapy and counselling.
Supervision is a mechanism to provide the coach/mentor, the client and the organisation with best practice and quality management. Supervision serves to help the coach/mentor manage high levels of complexity, maintain continued professional development, and have a mechanism for ensuring accountability and ethical practice. Supervision allows practitioners to re-construct their experience, reflect, understand, design their professional reality, and develop new responses for future practice within the supervision context.
