Supervisory Skills

Course Description
Far too often people are promoted into leadership positions without the proper training. Just because an employee is a good ‘worker’ doesn’t mean he or she will automatically be a great ‘leader’ of others! Being a leader is an entirely different job with an entirely different set of skills and competencies.

Leaders are also not born proficient; there is a substantial amount of learning and experience that is needed to be successful.  The goal of this training is to accelerate the learning curve. This course teaches participants the techniques and methodologies of supervising and leading themselves and others, which will immediately be put into action.

Participants will assess their own levels of proficiency and create a plan to improve effectiveness. They will also begin to identify and change their immediate work environment into a more healthy, positive, and professional one.

Supervisory Skills covers the key concepts of many of the leading management gurus, including Ken Blanchard, Stephen Covey, and John C Maxwell.

Who Should Attend
This course is designed for Supervisors, Managers, and above, including Senior Leadership.

Learning Objectives
Through training, participants will learn how to retain staff and gain the maximum level of commitment and production from their employees.
