New supervisors often face challenges, such as confusion between working and leading, knowing when to assist with tasks, and interacting in the new relationship.Supervisors must develop trust and respect with team members.This involves being an effective communicator and being consistently honest and fair.Experience helps supervisors better meet their responsibilities.

Motivation is an inner drive, but supervisors can create conditions that employees typically find motivating, including making a good first impression and maintaining a professional workforce.They also support a culturally diverse workplace.Supervisors should direct the work of their employees as they would like to be supervised.They prepare for success by providing a clear vision and making plans.They help employees succeed as they develop ongoing training opportunities and review employees’ work.They know that appreciation is a powerful motivator.Supervisors serve as role models.Their own behavior and attitude set the tone for the department.

16 3. Describe procedures for building and maintaining effective teams. Members of simple teams have similar work.Relay teams interact with each other, as when servers take orders and cooks produce them.Problem-solving teams work together to resolve problems.The best way to build teams is to maintain an environment in which employees can work together effectively.Good team leaders use several tactics including the use of interpersonal skills, allowing team members to make decisions, and creating an environment to reduce turnover and use available resources.Effective teams know their establishment’s mission and their role.They develop carefully planned goals focused on team functioning, information flow, specific assignments, and necessary resources.

Describe procedures for building and maintaining effective teams continued…Teams cannot be effective if supervisors use a poor management style, high turnover exists, or teams fail to focus on goals.If simple teams are not performing, more training may be required.When a relay team has problems, employees should be reminded that their work affects the entire team.If problem-solving teams are ineffective, corrective procedures are used and conflicts resolved.
18 4. Discuss the development and management of employee recognition and incentive programs. Employee recognition programs provide a way to publicly express appreciation.Incentive programs encourage employees to meet specific goals by offering a reward.Planners should determine what motivates their employees and what resources are available to reward the employees.They must also determine what behaviors or accomplishments should be recognized, determine the specific rewards for specific behavior and results, and communicate the recognition and incentive program information to the employees.Those planning recognition and incentive programs must also determine time frames and program rules and results.
19 4. Discuss the development and management of employee recognition and incentive programs continued… They must also decide how those who achieve program goals should be determined, and how the effectiveness of the program will be evaluated.It is also important to continuously implement other recognition and incentive programs based on the evaluation results.Examples of incentive programs include awards for service, sales and productivity, customer satisfaction, safety, and longevity.
