By reading the “Five Rules of the Road,” you’ll learn how to enhance your supervisory skills and boost your team’s morale.
Remember how it felt learning how to drive?
After years of riding around as a passenger, there was still much to learn about becoming a good driver.
Driving requires an enormous amount of attention-to-detail, not to mention the stress and frustration of dealing with traffic. Luckily this is a learned skill, just like learning how to deal with difficult or distracting passengers. You have to learn to manage it all, and sometimes you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful sunset to enjoy as you cruise along to your destination.
Many supervisors have similar feelings when they first step into a supervisory role overseeing others. Just as roadside guideposts provide guidance and direction to drivers, our supervisory guideposts provide supervisors with ideas, hazards to beware of, rules to follow, and ways to enjoy the ride.
