Supervision as an empowerment-strategy

You pursue goals, you want to improve yourself, you wish to develop, yourself as well as your team. You have made a lot of experiences and you have achieved a lot. But do you really perform to your potential? In order to achieve this without there being any need for painstaking and hard-won effort, look for expertise. Because processes of development we do not reach on our own, but together with other people who accompany and support us with their experience.

Supervision – the name says it: You look at something from above and take up a superordinate perspective. In whatever phase of your career you are, a successful way of life and personal satisfaction requires a neutral, but appreciative view from the outside and helps to find the decisive step in the right direction.

The more widespread the work area, the bigger the responsibility, the more necessary are order, structure, precision.

The way we live and work, either as an entrepreneur, either as an employee within an organisation, functions like a complex system in which a lot of elements interlock – the employers, the customers, the cooperating partners, but also future visions as well as the development in the past – individually as well as concerning the whole system.

Supervision is important to evaluate the personal and professional situation. The issue or the circumstances suddenly appear in a different light. One is capable to change the way of performing – more sovereign, more secure, more confident related to own values and identity.

For me supervision is like rotating a prism: Light shines through the glass and suddenly iridescent colours appear.

Sometimes one needs this rotation to see more precisely where there is friction, where role expectations and an appropriate manner of behaving hide chances, where invisible limits disguise the real potential.

Employees within an organisation make a living as well from their professional relations and their constant and lively exchange. Where something is to readjust, where one’s perception is directed towards innovation and to success in taking a forward-looking perspective is characteristic of an organisation within a changing world, capable to develop and to meet the challenges of given circumstances. Supervision sharpens this profile.

It is known from the American psychotherapist Steve de Shazer that there are often surprisingly short and unexpected turns that function like a key for a new perspective on the personal and professional situation – at least one rarely finds this key on one’s own.

My analytical, but appreciative and professional support takes the competences and resources into account and sounds out how to make use of them.

Discover together with me how you can increase your influence on your impact – for yourself as well as for others. Make use of Supervision & Mentoring as an empowerment-strategy to reach your potential and to highlight your influence.

Phases and ways of supervision

Classically it is distinguished

  • Supervision for individuals

  • Supervision for teams

  • Supervision for groups

  • Case-Supervision

According to the professional context it is analyzed what is necessary and what will push you ahead. Supervision does not follow a schematical run-off, but looks for what is needed – a team pursuing a common goal, a group working out a certain project or working within a special field of activity, a “case” when there is to reflect on relationships, and supervision for individuals when you need an evaluation for yourself.

Together we reflect on your situation, your role, your goals. The process is oriented towards your issue and your circumstances. Supervision & Mentoring means:

  • Defining the issue

  • Identifying specific goals

  • Defining your success and being aware of obstacles

  • Discovering a new orientation and developing solutions

  • Witnessing the power of a visionary solution

  • Phrasing steps on the path of change
