Inspiring quotes

  • Companies need to ensure that they hire coaches who have demonstrated their commitment to supervision and also to make provision for their own internal coaches.

    Eileen Arney, CIPD Adviser
  • Supervision can be a place where a living profession breathes and learns

    Hawkins and Shohet, 'Supervision in the Helping professions'
  • I am able to control only that which I am aware of. That which I am unaware of controls me. Awareness empowers me. No two human minds or bodies are the same. How can I tell you how to use yours? Only you can discover how, with awareness.

    Sir John Whitmore, Coaching For Performance
  • Supervision needs to be clearly focused on the real nature of practical coaching and mentoring. Reflectiveness results in mindful work where we constantly consider what to do, why we do it and examine it to see how we can do it better. Supervision is a forum for reflecting on work in the presence of another or others who facilitate that process.

    Dr Mike Carroll
  • We understand another person in the same way as we understand, or seek to understand ourselves. What we do not understand in ourselves, we do not understand in the other person.

    CG Jung
  • Supervisors serve as the keepers of the faith and the mentors of the young. Theirs is a quiet profession that combines the discipline of science with the aesthetic creativity of art. It is a curious paradox that at their best they are the least visible.

    Alonso, ‘The Quiet Profession’
  • Supervision is an opportunity to bring someone back to their own mind, to show them how good they can be.

    Nancy Kline, ‘Time to Think’
  • Supervision can be a place where a living profession breathes and learns.
