Boundaries in Supervision

Navigating boundaries in a supervisory role


Managing the boundary between personal feelings and professional requirements is sometimes a complex and confusing challenge. Leaders are not immune to this dynamic and are additionally tasked with managing their own boundaries with supervisees, as well as modeling and coaching supervisees on maintaining appropriate and effective boundaries with others. This class provides a framework for addressing complex ethical dilemmas that often arise in supervisory situations and will assist supervisors in using a grounded approach to addressing conflicts of interest and boundary issues in the workplace.

  • Explore the depth of the topic in a leadership role

  • Review boundary concepts and terminology from a leadership perspective

  • Examine biases and reactions when faced with challenging ethical issues
