Stepping Up: A Road Map for New Supervisors
How It Works
Uses and Applications
Stepping Up is an excellent starting point for supervisors who are new to their role. It has many applications for supervisory training, including:
A standalone training program for new and inexperienced supervisors
Part of a larger supervisory-skills training initiative
Preparation for aspiring supervisors or those considering a supervisory role
Understand the scope of the supervisory role
Develop the skills that are required to be a supervisor
Learn what principles are needed to build credibility
Discover the real-life concerns, challenges, and pitfalls of being a supervisor
Create an action-oriented decision-making performance model
Theory and Development
Stepping Up is based on three decades of professional contacts with supervisors. Over the years, the authors interviewed and job-shadowed countless numbers of supervisors in their own work environments in all industry sectors. The interviews had a common message that led the authors to two important conclusions. First, much of the success of organizations can be directly linked to the efforts of first-line supervisors. And second, organizational success is dependent upon supervisors possessing the right skill-set, mind-set, and commitment to excellence. Stepping Up was designed with this research and conclusions in mind.
