What is your biggest take away from this chapter on Personality and Values?   How will you use it as a supervisor in the future?

Leading a team and being a Supervisor is more than just giving directions. There are many aspects that are important when it comes to leading your team to success. One of the biggest things that a supervisor needs to understand when they are new to a roll is how to work with all personalities and values that their team members will have. Although in a perfect world we would have a team that gets a long great, that never clashes, and that always completes work on time. But this is not the case when it comes to the real world. Everyone is different which means that their actions, their thoughts, and their personality will eventually clash with someone else on the team. Being a good supervisor is seeing those things happening and figuring out a way to stop it before it completely destroys the entirety of the team itself. Building relationships in business with your subordinates is very important, they need to be able to trust you no matter what the situation is. That is the responsibility of a supervisor and the best way to ensure that is to know how your subordinates act, what their personalities are and what they value.
