Supervision Support

Supervision often emerges from incident investigations as a contributory or root cause. But the non-technical key skills required to supervise effectively are often not specified adequately and supervisors’ key functions can be left unclear or unprioritised. The non-technical side (i.e. the behaviours) are at least as important as the functions, and both are necessary for success.

The Keil Centre can help an organisation to:

  • Assess its current supervisory arrangements and issues
  • Identify the key supervisory functions it requires and recommend proportionate action for their improvement or optimisation
  • Define the behaviours expected of its supervisors as part of a behavioural standards approach
  • Train its supervisors in reaching these standards 

Some description

Benefits of this approach

If frontline leaders have a manageable job and set of functions to deliver, and are empowered to lead and to display the right behaviours, then the result is effective supervision, better productivity and fewer incidents.
