Concept of supervision

Supervision is regarded as a specific professional form of counselling that is focussing at the kind of work and the work tasks employees of organisations are doing. The guided reflection is directed to the various aspects:

  • the role of the individual employee;
  • the co-operation between the employees and the co-operation between them and the leadership;
  • the work which is done with the clientgroups;
  • the targets of the organisation.

Supervision is conceived as a supplementary measure for special and further professional training, not bound by a specific theoretical or methodological school and not restricted to a specific field of professional activities. Supervision aims at assuring and developing the professional and human quality of work. The theoretical background of this form of counselling is based on findings in organisation and communication sciences, sociology, adult education and psychology.

  • Individual supervision
  • Management consulting
