Supervision – Writing Exercise #1 (25 points) Part 1: After reading Chapter 1, complete the exercise “Assessing Yourself” on page 22/23. Look at your results, and thinking about the additional knowledge you have gained so far regarding the role of a supervisor – reflect on your thoughts and respond to the following questions: 1. Do you want to be a supervisor? Why or why not? (2 points) I am not sure if I would like to be a supervisor or not. There are some aspects that I find appealing, like having the freedom to do my own planning and making important decisions, however, I know it is a lot of responsibility and takes a lot of hard work to be a successful supervisor. I also think that it would be hard transitioning from a coworker to a supervisor, but if an opportunity presented itself, I think I would pursue a position as a supervisor. 2. Which of the supervisory functions (Planning, Organizing, Staffing, Leading, Controlling – or as I refer to them: POSLaC) do you think will be easy for you and which do you think will be a challenge? Why? Please answer this question even if you do not want to be a supervisor – you still have the ability to perform some or all of these functions, they may just be applied differently.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
