Supervisory skill—or the lack of it—directly affects every company’s bottom line. Each day decisions made by every foreman and superintendent are crucial to the success or failure of every construction project. You make your money in the field. Or you lose it. This course will describe the value of effective supervision of workers and improve the construction supervisor’s ability to communicate clearly and concisely.
