  • Being a Supervisor 1.0
    Joseph F Duffy, LLD
    There's typically no guidebook when being promoted into a management role - but this book helps fill that gap. The author does a great job including step-by-step processes to follow for running team meetings, on-boarding new employees, and even suggested tips for resolving workplace conflict. I highly recommended this to anyone in a supervisor role, or aspiring to be one ~ Stephanie Cashwell, Amazon Books

  • Being a Supervisor 1.0
    Joseph F Duffy, LLD
    How I wish this handy reference book was around when I accepted my first supervisory role. It is chock-full of tips and tools for responding to common scenarios and problems (and even better, how to prevent them from occurring in the first place). Material is presented in a quick and easy-to-read format (important when your first priority is supervising, not abstract, theoretical reading), and the author provides many forms and rubrics that he's developed over his expansive career, which you can adapt for your own use. And probably the best part, the handbook is broken down into different target areas that you can focus on in very constructive ways, making them more manageable, and putting context into a role that can often be very amorphous and elusive. I don't think I'm alone in feeling that my first role as supervisor came with little direction or guidance, this is often par for the course in the social service world where resources don't allow for a great deal of shadowing or training, so I can only imagine that others are struggling too. After a decade, I STILL find golden nuggets on how to make the job less stressful. If you are a supervisor, or about to step into the role, or even one with years of experience, do yourself a favor: get the book and keep it within arm's reach. ~ ASM, Amazon Books

    Joseph F Duffy, LLD
    I definitely enjoyed reading this book, I found that not only does it guide you to become an effective leader in an organization, but it makes you think about your role and your future. I would recommend reading it more than once as it will guide you in making very important decision, from how to effectively communicate to conflict management. If you are serious about your career you will want to read this book as it will help you a lot. ~ Amazon Customer , Amazon Books

    A great read. Awesome handbook for new supervisors. Loved the open door policy and the “mingling” with the troops. Keeps everyone involved with a shared purpose. Very practical to implement. ~ Michale Cummings , Amazon Books

    A good primer for someone brand new to a management or leadership role. Good, practicable ideas to try. ~ Alexis Waide, NetGalley

  • Being a Supervisor 1.0
    Joseph F Duffy, LLD
    While a lot of the information and concepts presented seemed fairly common sense to me, it would be a good primer for someone brand new to a management or leadership role. A lot of supervisory skills are explained in broad strokes but Duffy does give some good, practicable ideas to try ~ Alexis W, NetGalley

  • Being a Supervisor 1.0
    Joseph F Duffy, LLD
    A thorough analysis of an age old topic. It should serve as a reference for leaders. Packed with fresh thoughts and clear reasoning. At its core, this is a powerful book. ~ Elaine P, NetGalley

  • Being a Supervisor 1.0
    Joseph F Duffy, LLD
    Great Read. As someone with limited experience as a supervisor I find this book a great entry point. It's very resourceful and gives practical examples that reach quite beyond the non-profit sector. The author did an excellent job giving very direct advice on particular items such as communication, hiring, how to create and maintain a positive work environment and even on how to dress appropriately. ~ Andreas Stocker, Amazon Books

  • Being a Supervisor 1.0
    Joseph F Duffy, LLD
    I would recommend this book to anyone that finds themselves in a supervisory capacity. This book is a simple and concise how to book for today's administrator. I purchased this book as a former school district administrator, knowing that the topic is one that I hold very dear. This book would be a helpful toolkit for anyone who supervises. I found it to logically hit on all areas of supervision. It touches on important topics such as: job interviewing, tools needed for the supervisor position, effective verbal and written communication to both direct reports and bosses. Another unique quality of the book, it talks about topics which are overlooked, such as proper grooming for a job interview, appropriate language, and how to sit. I feel this book would be a welcome addition to anyone's bookshelf along side Covey and Maxwell's publications on leadership. -Dr. Colleen Malleo ~ Dr. Colleen Malleo, Amazon Books

    As a new supervisor, I found this book to be very helpful. There were some great tips on listening. Also some good tips on relating to staff. ~ Renee Brawdy , NetGalley

  • Being a Supervisor 1.0
    Joseph F Duffy, LLD
    Joe Duffy’s book will be useful to the new supervisor and a great resource to even the seasoned supervisor as to how to support and encourage those you work with. His chapter on building and maintaining a positive work environment is right on point. The work environment can make or break the organization and its employees. And the chapter on self care is very important as it addresses that oft neglected topic so often neglected by supervisors more concerned with the well being of his or her direct reports and immediate supervisor. Get your own copy. You won’t be disappointed. ~ Mary Burke, Goodreads & Amazon 7/29

  • Being a Supervisor 1.0
    Joseph F Duffy, LLD
    For a person considering entering the field of social service, this book is an excellent starting point. It provides the foundation for additional reading and for experience in the work place. I particularly enjoyed reading about decision-making, communication styles, self-evaluation and the importance of professional development. This book is based on Mr. Duffy's 45 years of experience at every level of the profession. As a Director of Human Resources and a trained social worker, I found this book to be a valuable tool that I will be using with my supervisees. Reina Rivas, LCADC, LCSW. ~ Reina Rivas, Goodreads
