Taking the Initiative

Workshop Aim

Leaders today need to take the initiative to make a positive impact on the results of their unit. It is no longer enough to follow instructions and do what the job description says. Things are changing so rapidly that supervisors have to constantly make the effort to do things better, to continuously improve their unit's performance. This module orients the supervisor to his/her role in taking the initiative. The module emphasises the importance of proactive action. It ensures that supervisors understand how taking the initiative can enhance their performance and identifies opportunities for action within the scope of the supervisor's function.
