This book uses Maslow's Human Motivation Theory, Jungian learning style, Communication theory, and Cogan's Clinical Supervision strategies to build a set of procedures for effective supervision of employees and professionals.

Words or Phrases: Supervision, Interpersonal Communications, Planning Skills.
This book conceptualizes supervision of others as a series of interpersonal interactions between the supervisor and one or more supervisees. The individuals in a supervisory relationship must work within the rules of a system of procedures, rewards, and expectations in an organization. This book uses the Human Motivation Theory of Abraham Maslow, Carl Jung's Personality Types, Communication processes of Carl Rogers and Kurt Lewin, and Morris Cogan's Clinical Supervision strategies to suggest effective systems of supervision related to the organization mission and goals. The examples used are all Kindergarten-12th grade educational settings. Each skill set used in planning, implementing and maintaining such a supervisory system is identified and taught and activities are presented to help readers learn to use them. Variations to use these skills in special as well as regular education settings are also presented. Specific observation-recording devices, conferencing skills, instructional issues, individual and group skills, time use, and special techniques for observing small group and individual learning are also presented in detail. All of the skills and processes have been taught and used with individual supervisors, small groups, and in large systems. The techniques have been adapted in private and non-profit organizations in and outside of education.

This book grew out of my university preparation as a supervisor combined with my work as a full time supervisor and decades of planning and consulting with large and small organizations in the United States, Canada and elsewhere. The original units were first written for my university courses, and were then combined into a complete system which supervisory and administrative persons could use on their own in their work places. Students from many countries in Asia, Africa, South America and the Middle East have taken copies of the book home to use as they adapted the ideas to their own culture. The whole focus of this set of supervisory processes is based on the idea that the most effective ways to encourage and ensure change in educational settings is through systematic professional development with significant individual and small group follow up and support as people begin to try out the new techniques of curriculum, instruction and assessment they are learning. In far too few of our organizational settings do we plan the systems of supervision which will assist the implementation of new ideas to accompany their introduction. Supervision in the ways described in this book is the most effective way to provide real value added outcomes to other investments intended to improve students' education.

About the book
Interpersonal and Consultant Supervision Skills: A Clinical Model is a coherent series of theory explanations, instructional materials, and practical activities that have been used by the authors and many others across the United States and around the world to teach middle and upper-level managers in schools and universities (team leaders, principals, chairpersons, curriculum coordinators, supervisors, etc.). The book has been used in entire school districts, colleges, and universities, individual consultations, national leadership training programs, and state departments of education. Workshops based on the book have been given at Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development meetings and the National Curriculum Study Institute Meetings. It has been received enthusiastically as a readable, complete set of inservice or preservice explanations of theory and instructional activities that does more than teach about supervision it teaches people how to be better supervisors. "It teaches people to think supervision as well as apply it; to understand themselves better so they can understand others better, and to make real their vision of the ideal supervisory relationship in which people can work together, be successful together, and have mutual respect, regardless of their positions, while really, demonstrably serving the learning and growth needs of those being taught."
