In today's business, the supervisor or team leader is the main link between the organization's goals and the people who are responsible for the daily activities that make those goals a reality. Because of the necessary and integral role that this position plays, it is obvious that good supervisors and team leaders are key to the success of any organization.
Many decisions required within this role every day affect profits, productivity, service levels, as well as attitudes, and morale. With a role and function of this magnitude, it would seem logical that the process of becoming a supervisor and team leader would require years and years of training. However, most supervisors and team leaders have had little or no training in the required skills. Almost universally, today's supervisory force is made up of men and women who have been promoted from being a super-worker to being a supervisor or team leader.

A supervisor or a team leader not only sets goals but also needs to determine how they will be achieved, what obstacles must be overcome in the process, and the time line necessary. The Supervisory process provides a proven goal accomplishment model that can be immediately applied to any organization.
