How to Supervise is a very informative, educational book about managing people in the work place. It is written by Dianne Shaddock who was once a new supervisor and through training and mentoring developed in to an expert on the subject. She gives tips on how to be successful in hiring, supervising, and motivating staff. The book helps develope leadership skills with which to managed employees successfully. It gives advice on hiring and firing strategies as well as managing difficult employees. The book lists challenges for new supervisors and how to deal with them effectively. As a new manager I found the book extremely helpful.

The book has some good points, if pretty basic. If there are supervisors out there who don't know these things, they should definitely get it from somewhere... but I would have appreciated a bit more depth and nuance. On the up side, it is a quick read.

The thing I must note, though, is how poorly edited the book is. There are spelling errors, grammatical mistakes, and typos throughout. It is pretty distracting at points, and detracts from the credibility of the author.

Ms Shaddock has written a great initial resource that anyone interested in management should read. It is refreshing to read why she wrote this - she wanted to help new managers avoid mistakes. One could easily use this book at a jumping off point with her lists starting with what not to ask or what to avoid in an interview all the way to writing performance reviews. Most supervisors would likely agree that critiquing and reviewing employees is likely the hardest part of a position.

That said there are some weak areas. Perhaps because it may have been prudent to avoid having an overlong tome Ms Shaddock failed to include some things that would be very useful such as specific questions one SHOULD ask during an interview. Your option there are links to podcasts but not everyone has the opportunity to enjoy them.

Overall I would recommend this to anyone considering moving up to management. I'm not entirely sure seasoned managers would benefit from reading this unless they are looking for ways to motivate junior staff.

"How to Supervise" by Diane Shaddock is a real "how-to" book on managing and supervising employees in the work place. Written after 20 years of HR experience, Shaddock has a wealth of information to share with the reader. She shares real world examples of good and poor situations in various aspects of the supervisior's span of control from hiring to firing and everything in between.

There is a lot of praticale step by step information to really get the job done. This would be a good book for college management class or to use in a work shop for training new supervisiors. In addition, it is a good reference manual to keep on the shelf to use when an new situation arises.

This book was a very informative read. It used great examples and had many helpful links to other books, sites, and podcasts that helped drive home the important points. First time managers or supervisors, or anyone who has struggled with managing people, would be well served to read this book.

This books helps in a lot of aspects of supervising. I learned a lot by reading this book that I had never been taught by previous managers.

This is a fairly decent guide but it contains MP3 audio files that I can't open on my Kindle, so I don't have access to all the information I paid for when I purchased this book.
