Developing the Skillful Supervisor

Group Training + View more dates & times


Skillful supervision is fundamental for creating and sustaining a healthy and vibrant organizational culture. Organizations cannot afford to haphazardly toss new supervisors into their roles and expect them to learn on the fly; it is simply not a sink or swim situation. The learning curve is incredibly steep with no introduction to a supervising position – and the consequences of poor management are too significant to ignore. This practical and results-oriented skill-building course provides both new and experienced supervisors with proven tools and techniques immediately applicable in their own workplace. As a supervisor, developing and maintaining relationships is pivotal in achieving organizational success. Establishing and maintaining positive relationships within the workplace enables effective cooperation and promotes higher productivity among associates. Preparation is critical for building and maintaining positive relationships, allowing for behavioral flexibility in handling different situations and people. Participants practice techniques for opening the lines of communication between individuals and gaining commitment from colleagues, subordinates, and superiors. In this course, participants learn techniques for changing the way they manage relationships, yielding better organizational results and improved personal effectiveness.
