Making the Transition to Supervisor
In many ways, supervisors hold the keys to the success of a business. Supervisors are a key influence on employee productivity and retention. They possess firsthand knowledge of employee performance and perceptions. And, in the eyes of the employee, they are a representation the “company”. The challenges, however, that are introduced when moving an employee from coworker to supervisor are often not fully appreciated or recognized. As we “reward” high achieving employees with a promotion to supervisor, employers need to insure these key contributors are equipped to take on the significant role that has been handed to them. This session will educate participants on the significance of the supervisor role, provide insight on how to successfully navigate the transition to supervisor, and provide tips and tools for effectively leading a team.
