Navigating the Complex Terrain of New Supervisor Success: Psychosocial Hazards Unveiled

Consider a new supervisor who has recently been granted the opportunity to advance to the position of permanent supervisor.

This is his first time in the role. They are new to this and are fairly green, but they have a superintendent who is extremely clear, provides excellent leadership, and provides ample feedback and coaching. So, despite all of the hurdles connected with that new post and lack of expertise, that supervisor goes on to be fairly successful.

Someone else who is new in a supervisor capacity, on the other hand, may not be as successful because they don’t have the superintendent’s support, they’re left to sink or swim, and they’re in a situation where the crew culture is extremely tough to manage, and they don’t have those resources.
