How can I be a good training supervisor?
I will be presenting my case at an assessment center tomorrow. Although I have no formal supervisory experience, I have applied to take part in a process that will eventually pick another Supervisor within our Learning and Development Department. I feel that, although I have no formal experience as my colleagues, I could still do a good job and have been exposed to many a leadership and management course. However, one of my big areas of opportunity is my temper, my lack of ability to keep a poker face in the face of crisis and the fact that the Director of the department perceives my way of work as being on the insecure side. Also, another issue that I have is that I am not confrontational, I have trouble saying no or letting someone know that they are not performing well. In short, in spite all of these shortcomings, I am responsible, proactive and comply with deadlines. How can I overcome my areas of opportunity, so that I can be an effective supervisor
