"In reading this book, I felt that I was going on a journey with Erik de Haan in his own discovery of the complexities and relevance of supervision to practice ? he discusses very well the multiple levels of reflection that help supervisees move from rigidity to flexibility.

All the chapters are interspersed with examples of the supervisory process which are geared to illustrate the points that he is making."Professor Maria Gilbert, Joint Head of the Integrative Department at Metanoia"The book is pragmatic and honest, offering rich vignettes to demonstrate application of both simple and complex concepts to the supervision process.

This is likely to be a useful read for coaches and consultants alike.

De Haan?s relational model brings a fresh focus and adds further depth to existing supervision frameworks.

The indepth exploration and exposition of this framework is refreshing and informative.

With contributions from leaders in the field, the book is further enhanced by a clear positioning of the benefits of supervision process for organisational consultants.

De Haan explicitly recognises the complexity of working with people in organisations, working with what is emerging, and positions learning as an ongoing enquiry." Dr Alison Whybrow, i-coach academy Ltd"The distinct contribution of de Haan?s book to the coaching profession lies in the focus on the psychodynamic relationship in supervision.The detailed explanation and exploration of the phenomena of transference and parallel process through numerous case examples, provides a rich source of learning and growth for both Supervisor and Supervisee.Especially valuable for a Supervisee as it offers a sound and deep understanding of what can be gained from the supervision relationship and the resulting impact on the coaching/consulting relationship."John Leary-Joyce, CEO Academy of Executive Coaching, EMCC UK President"De Haan offers a fresh pair of lenses to consider supervision as a tool for coach development.

This excellent title, which combines theory with practical case studies, is recommended reading for those interested in supervision and reflective practice."Dr Jonathan Passmore, Independent Consultant"Galileo once said, 'You cannot teach people anything.

You can only help them discover it within themselves.' Erik de Haan is unparalleled in helping coaches to become more effective in this discovery process - in using themselves as an instrument.

This book is invaluable for consultants and coaches who want to learn more from experience."Manfred Kets de Vries, Professor of Leadership Development, INSEAD, France"Drawing on his extensive experience as a practitioner, teacher and researcher, de Haan has created a book which will not only benefit experienced supervisors, but will also enhance the capacities of coaches, OD consultants and consulting teams to self reflect and to gain optimum value from their supervision.

De Haan builds his book on a strong psychodynamic and humanistic foundation, interweaving psychological insight with a wide range of illustrative case stories, thereby casting new light and depth of understanding onto the multiple aspects of the supervisor?s relational role.
