Supervision. A Higher Education Training Monograph.
Norman, Diane E.
This training module stresses the participatory management approach to effective supervisory behavior. Emphasis is placed upon the need-dispositions of subordinates in order to stage highly motivating work environments. Taken into account are interrelationships between the nature of the organization, characteristics of subordinates, leadership functions required of supervisors, and values and assumptions about the world of work held by supervisors. This two-day training program is designed to provide new and would-be supervisors with a theoretical and practical framework to help them understand the concepts of supervision and leadership in work settings. It should also provide trainees with fundamental principles and considerations for helping employees to improve their knowledge and skills in working with people. Training includes identification of: a personal theory of supervisory behavior; a practical basis for acting; implementation strategies and techniques; and supervisory performance evaluation methods. Training methods include: lecturettes, self-assessment exercises, group exercises, role play situations, and films. (Author/JLL)
