Description

Making the step up to supervisor is a difficult transition for most people. Not least because it takes skill to balance the needs of the organization with those of the work group. As a vital cog in the wheel of organizational success, you can start the wheels turning for the supervisors in your organization with the Supervisory Skills Questionnaire, the training solution that gets supervisors quickly up to speed and ready for performance. This is a tool thousands of trainers have relied upon for supervisor skills training and now the fourth edition has just arrived with a fresh design and numerous enhancements.

From the fully revised, full-color facilitator guide, brand-new participant workbook, online assessments and 180 degree peer feedback, to new skill-development activities, and development planning exercises, the Supervisory Skills Questionnaire offers a range of assessment and learning options for supervisors of all levels of experience. 

Why does the Supervisory Skills Questionnaire click for supervisors? 

Supervisors are responsible for getting work done through others and they are the front-line leaders who influence service and quality. Rather than a general focus on supervisory-related topics such as communication, leadership, and motivation, this combination assessment and workbook presents individuals with a series of 30 real-world situations. Supervisor skills are essential, and this product will help develop them.

How It Works

Available in both online and printed formats, the Supervisory Skills Questionnaire assessment tools present individuals with a series of 30 real-world situations. Their task is to choose one of three possible response actions. Scores reveal an overall supervisory score as well as strengths and areas for improvement in five specific skills:

  • Guiding the work
  • Organizing the work
  • Developing your staff
  • Managing performance
  • Managing relations

In addition to the self-assessment, the Supervisory Skills Questionnaire includes a new online 180 degree feedback component that enables supervisors to understand how they are perceived by their direct reports. The comprehensive data provides individuals with an in-depth understanding of their performance and a benchmark they can use to create an action plan for improvement.

The self-assessment and the online 180 degree assessment take approximately 20 minutes to complete. If you are not facilitating the half-day, supervisory skills training workshop, we recommend you allow approximately one hour for the interpretation of results, debrief, and goal setting. Trainer certification is not required to administer or facilitate the Supervisory Skills Questionnaire.
