Do you have a clear understanding as to why you are working at your current place of employment? Do you like your manager or supervisor? If you're a manager or supervisor, does your team like you? Supervision Matters: 100 Bite-Sized Ideas to Transform You and Your Team by Rita Sever provides some useful nuggets and the steps necessary on how to effectively supervise your team to reach your company's goals. Every day the work that you do moves the company closer to its stated mission and vision. Our interaction and communication language is what determines our level of success or the lack thereof. In this book, the Coaching Corner, Intentional Conversation Samples and Rita’s Rules of Engagement are designed to help you attend to the needs of the problem and not to focus on the cause of the emotions.

I enjoyed the simple, practical ways that Rita Sever guided me as if she was my personal coach sitting right next to me. As I read through each chapter, I gained the knowledge necessary on supervisory tactics. With Rita Sever including the Coaching Corner in this book, it just put the icing on the cake because it makes you pause, reflect and see the person in the mirror. Through these exercises, you will see how you think, act, speak and respond when encountering a dialogue, requiring results, enforcing leadership or working within your organization. In today's workplace there is a lot to contend with, from direct and indirect discrimination of any type to three generations working together in an attempt to communicate. As an added bonus for those looking to greatly improve how they supervise, Rita’s Rules of Engagement implements the 'to be, hear, see, play and share' elements that create the needed and required transformation for a new you.
