Critical Task, Critical Position

The role of supervisor has become increasingly important in recent years. It is no longer an honorary position. Organizations are developing faster and can find themselves in turbulent times.

Critical Task, Critical Position

These new circumstances demand a new definition of what the role of supervisor entails. It now requires more involvement, time and regular attention, specific knowledge and a keen interest in the development of the organization. Serious responsibility now comes with the job and it is no longer simply an opportunity to be in the spotlight, including external exposure in the media.

This makes the role something entirely different than a mere complimentary position. A good supervisor can add serious value to the organization. All the more reason for careful consideration when searching for the right person for the job.

Leading leaders

We can offer a new category of supervisors. People we know well and who fit the profile description. They are often still active as CEOs, CFOs, participation supervisors or leaders in a specific sector. Men and women, experienced, talented professionals with common sense, expertise, a network, entrepreneurial drive and involvement. And, last but not least, highly developed assessment powers. They are connected and function as an extension of the organization’s executives, truly capable of leading leaders.

Supervisor Courses

In addition, we offer the opportunity to participate in exclusive Ebbinge Courses, with dedicated learning for future as well as experienced supervisors and supervisory directors. The courses are aimed at more than just knowledge, by also focusing on individual skills, how to act in situations of conflicting interests and points of view, what the effects of one’s own behavior are, when to intervene, when to wait. We have offered these courses for several years now and consistently receive high praise from participants.
