Introduction to Supervision will be of great interest to both existing supervisors wishing to strengthen their skills and become more effective at their job, and employees who are hoping for career progression into the field of supervision.
Supervision is the task of overseeing the work of other staff in a business or organisation. The course Introduction to Supervision teaches about the key skills necessary to become an effective supervisor.
The course begins by introducing the learner to what supervision is, and describes the responsibilities of a supervisor. A range of topics associated with supervision are covered along with the five keywords of supervision, the five traits of a great supervisor, and the three supervisor core competencies.
The course will allow the learner to develop knowledge on what makes a good supervisor by delving into areas that are vital to strengthening the relationship between a supervisor and his/her employees. The value of trust among employees and the importance of understanding that people are motivated by different things is covered.
