Professional Supervision

Professional Supervision is a trusted, one to one opportunity to check in.  Find out how you can significantly improve your workplace performance.

Professional Supervision provides the opportunity to sit in a safe and trusted space, one-to-one, every month, to discuss things that are causing you unease or that you simply want to pull apart to explore a way forward. This could range from conflict with another member of the team (or client) through to feeling overwhelmed with your current workload, or simply discussing how best to implement a new idea.  Because my service is independent and confidential (see my code of ethics on The Details page), people feel able to discuss work-related issues without fear around confidentiality and how that might affect your working relationships or future prospects. 

Supervision encompasses three key areas within the workplace.

  • The Administrative function – This looks at your accountability around company policies, protocols, ethics and standards within your work environment.
    • Workload  management / Time management
    • Performance delivery / Skills development
    • Effective communication
    • Conflict resolution
  • The Educative function – Your ongoing professional skill development
    • Identifying skills, personal drivers, and goals
    • Authenticity
    • Barriers to professional growth
  • The Supportive function – Tends to the more personal relationship, ensuring that you are supported in areas such as;
    • Emotional intelligence (self-awareness, self-management, and relationships with others)
    • Feelings of stress, burn-out, low-mood or anger
    • Assertiveness / self-confidence

We talk a lot about physical Health & Safety in the business sector, however, there is a gap in how we support mental wellbeing. The reality is 1 in 5 New Zealanders will experience a mental illness this year and often work-related stresses can be eliminated through regular Supervision… Think of me as a confidential sounding board; an opportunity to pull apart a problem and find a workable solution.  Through reflection comes learning and growth. If you are a leader, there is a wonderful opportunity to provide the right level of support for your people.

look in mirrorA recent Harvard Business Review study found that happy employees have;

  • On average, 31% higher productivity
  • Their sales are 37% higher
  • And their creativity is 3x higher

Conversely mentally unwell employees showed significantly;

  • Higher levels of sick leave
  • Injuries
  • Workplace conflict
  • And personal grievance

The opportunity to increase workplace well-being while also increasing productivity seems almost too good to be true yet the statistics can’t be denied.  I offer an obligation free initial consultation so we both feel comfortable that we can work together. Supervision can be carried out in person, over the phone or via Skype. I look forward to hearing from you when you feel ready for better workplace performance.
