Supervision of New MI Learners

Supervision of New MI Learners Teach a learner how to fish and you help them become proficient. But help them to become a fish – to think like a fish, to swim like a fish, and to understand what it is like to BE a fish – and they move from proficiency to competency! Mentoring and peer coaching in the process of learning MI helps learners swim in a whole different league than those who have only been “trained?
