Effective Supervision in Transit

Supervisors must learn how to lead others rather than do the work themselves. In addition, they must earn trust and respect, in order to motivate, and strike the right balance between delegation and control. Supervisors must become skilled in proactive communication, listen well, demonstrate sensitivity, and articulate clearly. Supervisors must become adept in working in a diverse environment. As we face the complex challenges of today’s Transit environment, it becomes increasingly crucial that we examine our own behaviors as it relates to helping our organizations succeed.
