In keeping with our practice, this issue of Sattva analyses the role of the Supervisor in an organization. This person is the life and blood of the firm and contributes immensely towards the realization of larger corporate goals. It is a role that comes with benign authority and calls for “getting things done” without disturbing morale. Therein lies the Supervisor’s joy and challenge.

Samatvam Academy wishes you love, peace, happiness, success, health and more in 2020. May all your dreams come true.
