The Supervisor’s Toolkit provides a confident start to managing people. You can be promoted to supervisor or manager because you are good at what you do. The skills required to do the job are different to those needed to manage people.  For example; “How do you change from being one of the team to being the boss?” is a frequently asked question.

‘If a man’s only tool is a hammer, he tends to treat everything  as a nail’  Abraham Maslow.
