The Supervision Transition!

“Well begun is half done.” This holds true with supervising. Many get into the position due to it being the seeming “next step,” yet are ill suited to work with others. Give your employees this guidebook as the first stage in making the “supervision decision.”. They gain an accurate description of the supervisory position and decide if it is for them. As their manager or HR person, you will benefit from how little of your time is required, as well as refresh yourself about the position. The employee who chooses to supervise will already gain some orientation to the position and be able to smooth the transition. Help new supervisors harvest their experience as employees to become the type of manager they wish they had had. And when you encounter an employee who thinks that managers don’t do anything, give that employee this book to read and become informed about supervising. Major utilities have used this book state wide for all levels of employees. It is practical and readable.
