A Vision for Supervision

Strengths-based Questions for Reflective Conversations

Do you supervise others? Or do you receive supervision yourself?

Supervision plays a pivotal role in the professional development of social workers, psychologists, counsellors, managers, health practitioners, life coaches and other human service professionals. At its best, supervision can be a powerful crucible of discovery and learning for both supervisor and practitioner—with the benefits also flowing on to clients.

A Vision for Supervision consists of 40 cards arranged in 5 colour-coded suits:

  • Beginning: Establishing a relationship
  • Contexting: Identifying our accountability
  • Sharpening the Focus: Making each session count
  • Widening the Lens: Mapping our professional development
  • Ending: Celebrating the journey 

There are also 40 key topics such as ‘Hopes and plans’, ‘Present situation’,  ‘What worked?’ and ‘Noticing success’, along with 160 strengths-based, reflective questions for building your supervision conversations from start to finish.

'Strengths in Teams' is a set of 30 lavishly illustrated, full-colour cards depicting a zany and delightfully whacky circus. This circus looks very familiar; in fact, it shares all the idiosyncrasies and foibles of just about any team.
