Supervision groups often assume the role of a minority, as they provide the rest of their collectives with different views, thinking, approaches, relationships. When conducting a supervision group, a supervisor himself acquires the characteristics of a minority and encounters different ways of using social powers. In regard to group supervision it is essential, from the supervisor's point of view, to understand and be familiar with the processes which take place in groups between minorities and majorities. Only thus can he act more successfully and at the same time enable supervision groups to more systematically, purposefully and efficiently influence.

Key words: supervision group, supervisor, minority, social power, innovation.
