Coaching is just one tool that a Supervisor must use to be successful. Used in the right
situation at the right time, coaching can make the life of a Supervisor immensely easier.
Conversely, a Supervisor will end up extremely frustrated if they try to coach Supervisees
who need something else - when the situation does not call for coaching, or when the
Supervisee doesn’t want to be coached. Learning how to recognize when and when not to
coach is just as important as learning how to coach.
