Essentials of Great Supervision Leadership

the Centre for People Development

First line supervisors need to have great people management skills in order to deal effectively with the challenges arising from current and future organisational and environmental changes in the operations of the private and public sectors.  We recognise that people are the most important resource and will develop their abilities and achieve to their highest degree if well managed.
