Module 1: The Hallmarks of Supervisory Success – Developing strategies to effectively assume the supervisory role

How You Will Benefit
Effective supervision has the most profound positive impact on your business. Learning to develop strategies to successfully assume this important and challenging role is an essential skill for all supervisors.

New supervisors must motivate others, adapt to challenging situations (and help others do the same), understand organizational goals to set work priorities, establish productive relationships with managers, and delegate effectively.

To earn respect, a new supervisor must show respect – a daily effort that builds trust and supports long-term collective effort. When supervisors admit that they don’t know everything, when they leverage the experience of their team, and when they follow through on their commitments, others tend to give them the benefit of the doubt and remain open to evolving ideas and directives.
