This item includes access to view the fourth installment of the Your Bridge to Supervision series: Supervising Your Team on July 8th, 2021, as well as the content for the module Supervision: Supervising Your Team.
When you supervise a team, you assign tasks, and you monitor and control the execution closely. While employees are responsible for completing the tasks, the supervisor is accountable for maintaining safety and upholding standards. A leadership approach works well when the team has the skills and knowledge to complete job tasks without much guidance.
When supervising a team, daily operations include scheduling resources to get work done. Because you focus on short-term goals, you identify opportunities to reduce costs. Leaders focus on planning, communicating, and motivating the team, but delegate specific activities to subordinates.
This module examines areas related to supervising a team and is recommended for anyone new to supervision.
