SUCCEEDING AT SUPERVISION AND MANAGEMENT
Staff performance and overall conduct is largely influenced by the skills and behaviours of their supervisors, who must maintain purpose and order as we strive towards the achievement of organisational and individual goals. Nothing is more frustrating – or undermining – than being promoted to a supervisory position, and then stumbling around “cluelessly” with regards to one’s new roles, responsibilities and authorities. This programme shows participants how to assume a supervisory role with confidence, professionalism and knowledge, and alerts participants to the major pitfalls every supervisor and manager faces, and will help them navigate these challenges safely and efficiently – from the outset.
