Management is not an easy job, especially when you’re new. Whereas before you only had yourself to worry about, now you’re responsible for leading a team. And this includes lots of responsibilities and expectations that you may not be prepared to deal with.
Becoming a new supervisor is an exciting step in your career. But
chances are, the skills that got you promoted may not fully lay the
groundwork for supervisory success. There are five categories of
supervisory skills to focus on in order to accelerate your success as a
supervisor. They are:
- People skills ("soft" skills)
- Setting expectations, managing performance
- People development, and
- Technical skills
new supervisors focus far too much time and energy on the technical
skills of their job function and business unit. After all, this
expertise and background is what got them promoted in the first place.
The better focus for new supervisors is on the “soft” skills related to
communicating with, coaching, and developing people. Remember: you
cannot be successful if the people on your team are not successful. That
means you need to invest in their success.
supervisors are expected to get today’s work done through other people
AND to build the capacity of the team for the long-term, too. Think of
your dual role as managing work and leading people. Leading people and
investing in them for their success is the key to being a successful
