The NUMBER ONE reason employees leave jobs is as a result of poor relationships with their immediate supervisor. (The Gallup Organization)
Today many businesses are concerned with the high rate of staff turnover and the cost associated to this. Research indicates that 70% of the reasons employees leave their jobs are related to factors that are controllable by the direct supervisor. A supervisor is a key member of the management team in any organization and has the closest contact with the people who actually produce the work. He is therefore a critical link between the top management and the lower cadre staff besides being a key performance influencer in the organization.
Just like a hen, the supervisor has the responsibility of providing the warmth (environment) to help hatch (develop) the greatness in individual team members.
Supervision is a very dynamic function today and more so due to the rapidly changing business and human environment. The supervisor has an important role of nurturing a powerfully enabling environment that facilitates self drive, motivation, team work, synergy, passion and commitment to the job as well as productive relationships that can sustain the desired performance in the long run.
In appreciation of this fact, our approach to supervision takes a very different perspective – understanding supervision more from a coaching and mentoring perspective than from a managerial perspective. Supervising is like parenting.
