Directing – Production Supervisors oversee the contribution and performance of individual employees as well as teams to ensure company goals are achieved and standards are met. This involves communicating with colleagues to clearly state expectations about their work, timeliness and quality.

Planning and Priority Setting – They determine priorities, processes, and practical actions that are necessary to achieve a goal or idea. Production Supervisors are involved with creating detailed action or project plans, including objectives, responsibilities, time frames, standards, review stages, and eventualities.

Quality Focus – Production Supervisors ensure that all work in their area of the business, but also throughout the organisation, by vendors and suppliers throughout India, etc. is performed skillfully and to high standards for quality and integrity.

Communicating – They provide the information that others need in a concise, direct, and straightforward manner. They are aware of how their message affects the receiver and strive to make sure that the receiver clearly understands the specifics and function of the message.

Safety Focus – Production Supervisors take the necessary practical actions to minimise the incidence and probability of workplace accidents, injuries, and illnesses. Production Supervisors excel at keeping up with current workplace safety laws, research, and best practices; raising awareness for safety-related issues; remaining vigilant for potential hazards; and taking every precaution to protect the well-being of all employees.

Conflict Management – They openly and objectively address problems and bring significant conflicts and disagreements into the open with the intention of resolving the issue in an impersonal and constructive manner.

Composure and Resiliency – Production Supervisors are able to deal effectively with pressure, maintain focus and intensity, and remain optimistic and persistent, even in hard times. This competency includes the ability and disposition to recover quickly from setbacks, rejections, criticism and conflicts, with the ability to remain level-headed in the face of hostility or provocation.

Time Management – They focus on completing all work tasks in the allocated time while remaining responsive enough to react to competing demands and shifting priorities. They are able to manage multiple responsibilities simultaneously while still being organised, keeping on top of important time-sensitive tasks, and performing all work meticulously.
