Jeanne Hugg is a writer and consultant in human resources. Before discovering her ideal vocation in human resources, she was an instructor in communicative disorders at the University of Michigan and then at Northwestern University. While this career was rewarding, Jeanne had a desire to enter the business community.

Her skill sets were well suited to human resources and so she found her career calling. Ultimately, as a management consultant and writer, Jeanne has been able to merge her love for teaching with her passion for developing positive and productive work environments.

Challenged by the co-founder of a company, where she was consulting, to write a book about supervision, Jeanne began conversations with individuals from a variety of companies and at a variety of corporate levels. She spoke with restaurant servers, first line supervisors, senior managers, staff level employees, blue collar and white collar employees.

Without exception, each individual she spoke with expressed an interest in having a practical, readable, positive, solutions-oriented reference book for people who supervise. Supervisors and mangers wanted the reference book and employees wanted one to give to their supervisors and managers. So armed with many years of management training and experience, some experience writing for local newspapers, a sense of humor, a practical mind, and a passion for the material, she began to write….Supervisors would have a companion.

The Supervisor’s Companion has been written for the new and lightly trained supervisor. It provides the foundation to effective management.   The Supervisor's Companion available at Amazon.com
