By the very nature of work in an organization, a supervisor often ha stop work closely with his colleagues.


Postini Alternative

These lateral relations are not formally defined and their functioning depends largely upon informal understandings among supervisors. Thus the nature and degree of co-operation which a supervisor is likely to obtain form another is largely determined by their interpersonal relations. Here again the views of superior affects supervisor's relations to his colleagues at the same level. Although all supervisors have equal formal status, they do not enjoy equal informal status. The individual supervisor's relative status is determined by such factors as are, service, reputation and social standing. But the chief determining factor is his direct relation to his superior. Not only the supervisor's need for security, but also the closely allied strivings for status and recognition are therefore directed to his superior. He needs to feel close to him because this relation supports or weakens his relation to superior with that of his colleagues. He may compete with others or show disturbed behavior in the work situation. Such events may impede rather than facilitate cooperation among supervisors. The situation can become a constant source of problems for the superior.
