    just wondering if its a management technique when they try to put their hands on your
    shoulders or back? friend of mine just became a sup about a week ago he was doing training before that. now he has this thing where he puts his hand on my shoulder or my back when talking to me. he never did it as a preloader im assuming its something taught in training, i do it right back to him which makes him stop just wondering who else sees this.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    I had a center manager who would do that to everyone....or he's stand in your personal space to talk to you sometimes. I think it was innocent...just his way of relating but if it makes you uncomfortable...talk to him about it.

    Tell him you appreciate his advances, but you're straight.

    That should help

    As soon as he touches you fall to the ground and huddle yourself in the fatal position and yell as loud as you can "CALL 911". That should end that.

    No, they don't teach that in sup school. The majority of time is spent on the greatest tool a supervisor has, a pcm. We practiced everyday and when we finished school our trainer came around and watched us give one. The first and last time I have a pointless pcm.

  18. It's not in any training I've done, that's for sure. If any thing the training teaches the opposite. Keep your hands to yourself

    normally i face sups when talking to them but he seems to like to get next to ppl and do this. like i said i usually do it back to him
    which makes him stop but i have seen him do a back massage on one guy and one arm hug a few others. only other times i see sups touch
    pters is when they want to get them away from a bulk cars way that pter hasnt seen yet.
