Leadership Directions - Supervision and People Management

Supervision, or management, is the art of achieving outcomes through other people, and to do that you need first rate leadership skills. You can supervise or manage business functions, but you have to lead people. The role of the supervisor or first level manager is to do both. This course will help you get the balance right.
