Best Practices Manual 3 Demonstrating Communication Skills Rue and Byars (2004) states "Communication…can be used to inform, command, instruct, assess, influence, and persuade other people (p. 39)." Communication is an essential part of being a good supervisor and yet it can be the hardest form of contact in any relationship. A good supervisor must be able to write evaluations, reports, letters, and e-mails with professionalism. Knowing what information to include and how to format the information in these forms of communication is essential to maintaining a good working relationship with employees. The ability to write and speak clearly has become necessary in the workplace and a good supervisor will encourage communication and let employees know that they are ready, willing, and able to take on this responsibility. A good supervisor will also be able to give clear direction to the employees. When the supervisor lacks in their ability to communicate, employees will have a poor understanding of what is required for the job. When the supervisor has developed good communication skills, employees will have a clear understand of what is required and be able to reach or possibly exceed their goals. A good supervisor should also be able to motivate employees, keep them up-to- date on changes, listen to what they have to say, and be willing to hear their suggestions (Denton, 2001). A good supervisor will let the employees take part in planning new projects or procedures and have some say in how they complete their job. Employees who take part in the planning process will believe that their input is important that they are a part of the organization, and that their feeling and opinions are respected. This will not only make the employees happier in their job, it will encourage the employees to work harder, be more willing to accomplish goals, and stay longer with the organization.

Best Practices Manual 4 Remembering to give feedback on comments or suggestions will help assure the employees that they are being heard and that the supervisor is listening to what they have to say. The grounds for a good working relationship can be encouraged when the supervisor is open to suggestions and feedback from the employees. A good working relationship can also reduce the need to be overly persuasive or assertive when the supervisor has to pitch a new idea to the employees.

    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.
