Be the Best Supervisor You Can Be

You have probably heard the old saying, “With great power comes great responsibility.” It’s not entirely clear who first said this, but the message is obvious: those steering the ship must think about the good of the many and not just their own well-being.

It sounds like the motto a general might have, but is also applicable to those in lesser forms of responsibility. For example, an office manager may enjoy a nice pay cheque and some high-quality benefits as part of their position. However, along with those perks come the harder aspects of the job: making tough decisions that can leave you caught between the wishes of the company owners and the desires of the employees.

Here are some tips on how you can navigate those tough times and be the best supervisor you can be.

Be the Boss You Would Like to Work For

We all remember bosses that created less-than-desirable work experiences. Remember those times and learn from them. All jobs are different, but some of the basic principles of management cross over. A primary one is setting a good example. Listen, be professional, be reasonable, and be receptive. Ideally, your workers will respond the same way.

Be Willing to Change Course

It can be very tempting to stick with the tried and true, but avoiding risks can also be a mistake. Rules help to keep things moving along efficiently, but don’t be afraid to bend them when the time and opportunity calls for it.

Be Willing to Admit You’re Wrong

Some supervisors believe they can only command respect if they are faultless and decisive. Too bad that there is no one alive who never makes a mistake; trying to pretend otherwise simply alienates others. When (not if) you make a mistake, own up to it. Once again, leadership by example will encourage other members of your team to follow suit.

Unique Floor Plans!


There are a lot of different style floor plans for your day to day home designers. We have a number of different arrangements to use to structure how we do basic living structures. There are a lot of people and each of them have a different idea of how exactly to design a home. There are bungalows, single story homes, multi story homes, mcmansions, and fully regular style mansions. Home designers have to go through quite a lot of different architectural design programs before they can be fully fledges designers. I spent quite a lot of time looking through different home design programs. Home designers have a lot of different styles to choose from when designing styles. There are also a lot of different builder of pre fab houses so when choosing your own builder it is important to make sure it is the right one.

In my city alone, there are a number of options to choose from. There are several different communities which have sprouted up on the outskirts of town which are optimized for the community living standards. Often these communities are build and incorporated using parks, rivers, streams, etc. Some of these communities are seen as less good than say more traditional older communities because the houses are very similar. It is a bit eerie to go through a community and see the same cookie cutter style houses side by side. Just recently I was looking for a friends house when I was driving through one of these cookie cutter communities and I noticed that the houses were so close to one another! They were basically side by side! It was completely ridiculous. I feel like neighbors could share cooking recipes because the windows were so close. I mean you could basically throw footballs between each windows and it wouldnt be too difficult.

I would say, for my neighbourhood, that there are a couple companies that are amazing. One in particular specializes in Ontario custom homes – click here to see more!
