I'm the newest in a team of four supervisors, with multiple directs who all report to all of us. We have a core staff of 32 (eight teams of four) who each have a supervisor assigned, and our shift patterns are designed to partly line up. We have another team of three doing the same job who work remotely, a single member of staff who works in the same building, and another team of three doing a different job remotely and on shifts that don't match ours in any way.
I'm working on rolling out o3s with the two teams assigned to me, but I have no ideas how to handle the "semi-directs" (for want of a better term). I'm not in a position to change the structure, and I don't have the time to add o3s with the seven "semi-directs". Even if I did, they don't have the time to have o3s with all four of us (though I don't think my colleagues do o3s).
My employer's management training consists mostly of "here's what our policy says", so I've been listening to MT to try to get some advice, and it's starting to make a difference, but I feel like no improvement is taking place in the staff without a clear line manager, and forming relationships is something I struggle with.
