Supervisors are responsible for the day-to-day performance of a small group, either a team, a department, or a shift. Supervisors typically have experience in the group's purpose or goal and have earned the position based on management's belief that they're capable of guiding the team.
The designation of a supervisor is less common in the 21st century than in prior years when observing co-workers closely was deemed a necessary management tactic, but the designation and the role still exist in a variety of vocations.
A supervisor oversees the day-to-day performance of employees. Depending on the company, a supervisor may manage a team, a shift or an entire department.
Successful supervisors have excellent organizational and communication skills. These skills help them transfer information from upper management to employees and communicate their teams’ performance or needs to high-level managers. In most cases, supervisors are experts in their field and can efficiently manage daily operations as a result.
A large part of the role of the supervisor involves offering feedback, both constructive and positive. Constructive feedback is more challenging for most supervisors to deliver.
