Supervision: shaping complex relationships
Supervision is consulting for people and organisations, whose own primary task is working with people and who are therefore constantly redetermining their own professional position within the range between closeness and distance to their clients. This is highly demanding relationship work, for which supervision is essential. Supervision allows for ongoing reflection of one’s professional role. Individuals, groups or teams participate in supervision. It is integrated in the organisational structure and contributes to organisational development.

Coaching is aimed at individuals — often managers — in organisations, whose goal is to expand their repertoire of possible actions. It is usually occasion-based, solution-oriented and limited in time. Focus is placed on a very specific professional issue or challenge. Coaching supports self-reflection and trying out new behaviour. It is aimed at individuals or teams.
