This definition implies that supervision includes:-PowerPoint Presentation: Overseeing employees at work. Intelligent utilization of human talent. Motivating employees to peak performance.

He assists employees in doing a good job. He translated the “foggy” management directives to workers in an understandable language.PowerPoint Presentation: The Skills of a Supervisor To perform his job effectively, the supervisor must posses certain skills. According to Prof. Robert Kahn these may be classified into 3 categories: Human skills Technical skills Conceptual skills Human skills:- Try to look at the positive side of the coin first.

Following recommendations for achieving effective supervision:- Practice participation :- Supervisors should allow employees to air their feelings about organizational policies and procedures openly. Employees should be opportunity to ventilate their grievances freely. Even if an employee wrong, the supervisor should listen to him, because this can be a means to relieve tension and establish mutual support. Be aware of the resources available to accomplish the prescribed work :- Supervisors should be able to manage resource flow properly. However, striking a fine balance between human and non-humanPowerPoint Presentation: resources is not easy. Know and enforce policies and rules :- Policies define the boundaries of supervisory action. They guide the current and future operations of an organization. In case where rules are violated and policies are not enforced rigorously, rectificational steps should be taken without delay. Find out the existing relationships inside and outside the immediate department being supervised :- To show good performance, supervisors should understand the network of organizational relationships that exist between various departments. They should also know how each department contributes to the realization of overall goals.PowerPoint Presentation: Watch time waste :- Supervisors should view time as a vital and precious possession, which must always be used wisely. They must be able to get the most out of their working hours. This requires that they must clearly define the long and short term objectives and outline the priorities properly.PowerPoint Presentation: Traditional vs. Developmental Supervision Traditional Supervision Developmental Supervision Responsibility increases as one goes up the hierarchy. At lower level, the sense of responsibility is not developed in a healthy way. The supervisor should plan , guide and monitor the work of subordinates closely. Hierarchy Responsibility Workers are as much reliable and trustworthy as the managers. They are capable of achieving results independently. The role of supervisor is to develop this sense and utilize it for achieving goals.PowerPoint Presentation: Supervisor focuses on task accomplishment, irrespective of weather the worker is motivated or interested in doing so or not. Task and personal growth Developmental supervision tries to integrate individual aspirations and organizational requirements. Put the worker on job , assign the work, monitor progress and get things done, sums up the philosophy of traditional supervision. If the individual is put on track whenever he goes off the rails , then group also perform the assigned roles without much of problem. Individual and team Here the individual and groups are treated as complementary and mutually supported units. Develop the team spirit and everything goes smoothly. Good individual performance does not guaranteed the success of group.PowerPoint Presentation: Made BY: Jasbeer Kaur Yashita Rohit Thank You You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
