You may have just become a facilities supervisor or are a seasoned veteran. As a new supervisor, you probably have mixed emotions. You may be excited about new opportunities, yet, you also may have some concerns. If you are a seasoned veteran, there are some things you do very well, but there are always new skills to learn or reinforce.
As a facilities supervisor, you play a key role in the success of your department because you are the link between frontline employees and upper management. The Supervisor’s Toolkit program was developed to offer facilities supervisors an opportunity to examine and enhance their skills through a series of seven modules. Each module was designed to be interactive, easily customized, flexible and fun, dealing with a specific supervisory skill or responsibility.
