Introduction To Supervision

Have You Been Put In Charge Of Others Without Any Form Of Training ?

Or in other words…

Have you been formally trained in the art of Supervision?

Or have you been promoted because you have been with the company the longest ?

Maybe you are the best tradesman and that is why you were promoted ?

Maybe you were promoted on a gut feeling ?

If this is your business then I am here to tell you it is OK.


It is not your fault.

The business at the time had no choice right…

And besides…

What training would you need ?

What training would any person need to be a Supervisor ?

Did you know…

Many Supervisors never get the practical training to help them manage their part of the business and the people who report to them.

This lack of training can cost, frustrate and harm the business and employees especially if…

It involves incorrect work procedures or Work Health and Safety issues.

Not to mention, harassment laws, unfair dismissals claims or simply stress related matters.

Supervising people is a learned skill.

Supervisors need to know about:

  • themselves;
  • the people they lead;
  • and the business needs.

This practical workshop gives the new, nearly new or soon-to-be appointed Supervisor a thorough understanding of the role and responsibilities of their position.
