What is supervision?

It is the exploration, discovery and conceptualization of issues and feelings related to work, its objectives, its strategies, the working community and working roles in cooperation with a trained professional supervisor. In supervision, we discuss and reflect upon issues connected to work that the supervisee/s bring up and wish to work through.

Supervision promotes professional growth and cooperation skills, and clarifies roles at the workplace. It is one of the most effective ways for improving both leadership’s and the personnel’s capacities for facing current challenges in working life. Its effectiveness is founded on the work taking place on the supervisee’s terms. The starting point for the work is the supervisee’s own motivation to develop. The supervisor is like a sparring partner for the supervisee, a coach, a facilitator and a support person.

Some objectives for supervision might be

  • Clarifying management roles or expert/worker roles
  • Improving the performance of the organization and promoting interaction and communication

What supervision is not

Supervision does not mean introducing a new employee to the job at hand or new work tasks. It is not education in the sense of courses or teaching. Nor is it therapy, although it often has resource-building effects that improve occupational safety and health.
