Fear as a Dynamic in Supervision


  • R. Scott Sullender


Fear and faith coexist in the supervisory relationship. Therefore, faith inevitably has or must have an "in spite of" quality to it. We trust in spite of fear. We risk in spite of dangers. We try on new behaviors, new thinking, and new identities, all of which require trusting in spite of fear. Ultimate the hope is that we are teaching our supervisees and ourselves, how to have courage.
