Supervisor Skills

Nothing is more frustrating… or undermining… than being promoted to a supervisory position, and then stumbling around clueless as to your new roles, responsibilities and authorities.

Staff performance and conduct is largely influenced by the skills and behaviours of their supervisors. They must maintain purpose and order and strive towards the achievement of organisational objectives. This seminar shows how.
