Eve Turner and Professor Jonathan Passmore began a research project in May 2016 on dealing with “tricky” dilemmas in supervision. Stage 1, an online survey, was completed by the autumn 2016. Stage 2, involving follow-up interviews with some of the online survey participants in Europe, the USA and Canada and the UK has also now been completed. Additionally we have had input from the coaching professional bodies through interviews and questionnaires. Analysis is taking place throughout 2017. The findings are being shared in conferences, webinars and articles. An initial presentation was given on Thursday 2nd March 2017 when Jonathan and Eve presented headline findings at the EMCC’s annual conference in Edinburgh. An article has been published in Coaching at Work November/December 2017 edition – The Trusting Kind in Vol 15 (6), pp34-39. And reference will be made at a day on ethics being arranged for2018, in London by the coaching professional bodies.
Supervisors, coaches and consultants, and anyone else interested in the results, are invited to e-mail Eve if they would like to receive copies of the findings. Many thanks to the one hundred plus supervisors across the globe who took part in Stage 1, to those supervisors who took part in one-to-one interviews and the professional bodies for their support and input.
