A good supervisor provides the right mix of encouragement, constructive criticism, and motivation!
|"You're doing great, Mom. I'm here for you."|
Toss in a little constructive criticism to help your worker do even better than she thought she could:
|"You call that square cornering the sheets? You can do better than that!"|
And find the right motivation! Everyone's is different!
|"Yes. Yes, you can play with my GoughNut toy when you finish! Until then, it stays right here!"|
It's tough work, supervising, but it comes naturally to me.
|"I don't always watch Mom make the bed,|
but when I do, I make sure I have my GoughNut with me."
The fourth and fifth steps of supervising are inspection ...
|"Hmm... let me test this baby out!"|
And finally praise for a job well-done!
|"This is so nice I had to share it with Cammie! Way to go, Mom; great job!"|
"Nice work, Mom! You deserve a pear."
Mom said something about having to straighten everything back up after Cam and I jumped down. I don't quite get that. Do you? I must have supervised her into wanting to do a really perfect job!
I hope all of you have some time to kick back this weekend!
