OVERVIEW

There are so much to do for first time managers and newly appointed supervisors.

 

First time managers and newly appointed supervisors need to upgrade their existing competencies and transform their mind-sets to face the new challenges in front of them. There are many nerve racking issues in their minds.

 

They need to focus on team goals and erase the previous “soloist“ mind-set. They do not work alone now but with sub-ordinates to take care. Meeting expectations and pressure from bosses are obvious but with the new challenges as team leaders, they have to be responsible for the team’s performance and welfare.

 

Many are doubtful whether they can be accepted by the team. There are so many questions raised when employees become first time managers or newly appointed supervisors. Some of questions are common but nerve racking. Can staff accept them and perform with maximum output under their leadership?
