This is an empirical study of the factors impacting on supervisee's satisfaction on coaching and supervision in Korea. The study set four independent variables (supervisor, supervisee, contents, and organization), a moderator variable (relationship between the supervisor and supervisee) and a dependent variable (supervision satisfaction) based on the theoretical background on supervision. The data was collected from a survey of 112 certified coaches who had experienced supervision. As a results of the hypotheses tests, the supervisor and organization factors affected the supervision satisfaction. The relationship between the supervisor and supervisee moderates the impact of the supervisor and supervisee on the supervision satisfaction. They reported that the effectiveness of the coaching supervision in Korea was strongly dependent on the supervisors. These results were attributed to the short history of the coaching supervision and the lack of experience related to it. They also suggested that a great deal of research on coaching supervision will be needed to develop a clear identity/framework of coaching supervisor and its methods.
