This thesis explores the importance of supervision and the impact that supervision has one both supervisors and supervisees. Throughout this thesis, I explore leadership styles, retention rates, job satisfaction, generational differences, but most importantly I will discuss the lack of education surrounding leadership styles and supervision. Another thing that this thesis will explore is the impact that identity plays in supervision and how different identities may need accommodations in a supervisor and supervisee relationship. In order to address the issues listed, I will explore the different theories, research, and studies that have been done. My intervention will directly respond to the need for educating both supervisors and supervisees. Throughout the intervention, the importance of both parties taking responsibility for developing a working relationship is also discussed in depth.
