A supervisor who utilizes delegation will provide positive outcomes for his workers. As workers, their roles are enhanced with responsibilities and they know that their contributions are needed and valued. For example, supervisor of this gardening project would group individuals to cover different regions of lawn and would follow up on their progression. This style of supervising allows teams to focus on their assigned area and helps supervisor to keep track of equal distribution of work duties.
Supervisor training involves resource management. The supervisor will use limited resources he has to make this project tolerable. For example, supervisor knows he will be working with anxious teenagers that have lived up to motto of no work, all play. That explanation could make him nervous in itself. However, he brainstormed an idea of mixing work with play and encouraged his workers to wear their swimsuits while working. With sprinkler system turned on, crew will be able to cool off while working in heat.
Feeding hungry teenagers after work will be a challenge with $20 to spend. Depending on what degree of fine dining he wants to go, or how picky or how healthy conscious his workers are or arenít, starving appetites after a hard working day might override all eating preferences. The supervisor settles in on ordering four large pizzas for $5 each at a local pizza place. The business complex offers employees complimentary beverages and paper goods, so supervisor takes advantage of that resource to keep morale high.
By end of day, supervisor left with a sense of success and his young workers went home with a full stomach and pride of beautifying gardens of business complex. With these supervising training tips in mind, you can turn any laborious task into an enjoyable and learning experience.
