Overview

Continuing the Elwood Chapman tradition, author Cliff Goodwin brings you The Supervisor’s Survival Kit, the 11h Edition.

It offers a unique approach—fostering supervisory skills through the use of role plays, case studies, games and exercises—and will help readers gain confidence in their leadership and supervisory roles. This book discusses how to make the transition to management, achieve productivity through people, build an effective team, and conduct essential supervisory tasks such as staffing, delegating, motivating and appraising employees.
