Supervision and Consultation. Leadership Pamphlet #7.
Adult Education Association of U.S.A., Washington, DC.
This pamphlet on supervision and consultation is the seventh of 16 in a series to provide leaders in adult activities with sound introductory material to give practical help in using a method of adult education or working in a particular area. Its objective is to help leaders learn how to perform activities of both the supervisor and consultant. Nine articles and how-tos are included. "The Helping Relationship" considers the principles involved in helping someone. Some principles to guide supervisors in carrying out their responsibilities--seeing jobs are performed and coordinating these jobs so organizational goals will be achieved--are presented in "Fitting the Person to the Job" and "Making the Organization Work.""The Three Contacts in Supervision" describes the hierarchical relationships within which the supervisor works and the special demands of these relationships. "Putting Principles into Practice" develops the problem of being able to understand and communicate with people one works with. "Training for Supervisory Development" presents ideas for training supervisors and getting organizations to accept the idea of training supervisory staff. The last three articles examine the problems of the non-hierarchical consultant relationship. They are "Stresses in Consultation,""Helping the Client Help You," and "Helping the Consultant Help You."
