Employer of Choice:
Effective Leadership at Every Level.
Need for Effective Supervisory Practices
  • While business owners and general managers may establish the policies and procedures that would make a business an employer of choice, the managers, supervisors and team leaders that have the most contact and influence with the most employees are responsible for making the employer of choice initiatives to become realities.

  • Most managers, department heads, supervisors and team leads have oversight responsibility for multiple employees and critical business processes.
  • Managers, supervisors and leads are responsible for the consistent quality and performance that will ultimately determine whether or not relationships with customers or clients will continue.
  • The business is only as strong as its weakest manager, department head, supervisor or lead.
  • The urgency for effective supervisory mindsets, skills and processes increases as competition gets better and more numerous.
  • The urgency for effective supervisory mindsets, skills and processes to be taken to the ‘next level’ increases as the business grows.
  • As the business grows and expands, people with supervisory responsibilities need to improve their supervisory and leadership skills, processes and behaviors, and properly delegate some of their current activities to others.
  • Delegating to others requires managers and supervisors to know how to develop the talent within the people they supervise so they can focus on higher-level activities and concerns.
  • As the business grows and expands, managers and supervisors need the mindsets and skills to make more decisions within their areas of responsibility and to work effectively with people in other areas of responsibility (team based decision making, etc.)
  • Many managers, department heads, supervisors and leads receive on-the-job training, issue-by-issue or on-again-off-again coaching, as opposed to a comprehensive professional development process that would produce better short-term and long-term performance, higher profits, and fewer headaches for owners and general managers.Shortcuts in professional development produce opportunity losses.
  • A business leader’s effectiveness is measured by how well he/she has developed others to lead their groups and their ability to make appropriate decisions with minimal involvement from the business leader.
  • Many businesses have insufficient time or in-house resources to provide effective supervisory training, and would benefit from a professional delivery of this important, business improvement and growth information and process.
