Being a supervisor is like moving to the front of the class, everyone around you is watching your moves and expecting the best. But it takes more than a promotion or a job title to be a great supervisor, it takes leadership. That’s the message behind The Front of the Class.
Sixth-grade teacher Tamara Davis remembers little Bobby Ward… ”…a natural leader, hiding in the back of the class.” So when Robert Ward calls 12 years later asking for advice about his new job as a supervisor, she is more than happy to give him a refresher course on leadership. Hilarious recollections of a child’s best and worst teachers, the moving story of a classroom hero, flashbacks to the teacher’s pet and everyone’s favorite homework excuses, all figure in to a memorable lesson on the qualities of a true leader. There are two principles that all true leaders use as their guides. The first is simple: You only succeed when they do! A good supervisor must always ask, “what do they need from me to succeed?” The answer to this question is the second principle, and the backbone of The Front of the Class. A film with wisdom, warmth and a sense of humor for supervisors. From the producers of the best-sellers, The Practical Coach, The Guest and Keeping the Good Ones.
