His practical approach is predicated on his supervisory experience featuring real life case studies that are clear and straightforward. Each case study is discussed along with practical no-nonsense solutions and suggestions based on his experience teaching others. As part of the discussion, Nicholson outlines the two most common reasons supervisors fail and offers simple principles, guidelines and rules to assist all those that want to improve their supervisory skill sets.

It has been my observation that too little training and guidance is provided to those in supervisory positions.
