Ever had one of those days ?

My colleague has been in a 'supervision' session for almost an hour now

One of those horrible offices with plenty of windows for onlookers to gawp through the second a voice is raised ?

I'm sat about 15 feet away and just heard her say this to her supervisor.

😂 amazing. Does the supervisor deserve it?

@CheshireCatalyst She's not been here very long. But she does have a reputation for rubbing people up the wrong way !

A supervision session is supposed to be about your colleague expressing-freely, how they are finding work at the moment and if there are problems that they need help with.

The supervisor's role is supposedly to offer advice and guidance.
....and now they're rowing !

@Picklebobble2 yeah I do most of the supervision here, I've never had any formal training on how to do it, I've just read everything it's supposed to be and experienced what it's NOT supposed to be in a lot of supervisions run by bad managers.

@CheshireCatalyst I've spent nearly 30 years in this job and the differences between good and bad supervisors is scary !

@Picklebobble2 It starts at the top! Good or bad! It changes the whole climate. “I’ve not the crayons!” 🤣
