Supervision and Group Performance; Instructor's Guide: Interagency Training Program.
Civil Service Commission, Washington, DC. Bureau of Training.
The instructor's guide to the course designed to acquaint supervisors, with such behavioral science theories as motivation, leadership, group dynamics, and change, stresses student participation through group discussion, role-playing, incident-process case discussion, and management simulation or games. The course is organized around four themes (each containing several topics): individual employee (motivation, motivation-hygiene theory, job enrichment, management by objectives, and labor management relations); individual supervisor (leadership styles and communication); employee as part of a group (group decision-making and formulation of primary groups); and supervisor as part of a group (specific leadership roles within groups, resistance to change, and problem solving). For each topic (as well as for an introductory section) the guide provides: (1) preparation information including a statement of behavioral objectives and notes to the instructor covering the purpose of the module, main concepts, typical participant reactions, any special advance preparation, reading sources for each module, necessary visual aids and materials, and applicable trade secrets; and (2) a presentation guide which is divided into a right and a left hand section, the former containing detailed topic presentation, and the latter providing, at appropriate points, basic teaching process instructions. Fifty-six pages of course handouts are appended. (JR)
