Ways of supervising your senior staff member

There are several ways to supervise your organisation's senior staff member. Supervision can be done by:

1. The committee as a whole.

This is not usually effective, but can sometimes work in small, informal organisations. It may be quite inappropriate if the committee contains people to whom it would be unwise, or unprofessional for the senior staff member to confide problems.

The committee is ultimately accountable for the performance of the senior staff member and should always carry out an overall monitoring role.
