Session Description and Topics

So you’ve done it! You have excelled as an individual contributor and now it’s time to move into a supervisory role. You are excited about your new role and promise to never make the same mistakes that “terrible” bosses have made with you! You start your new position and are told, “Just ask if you have any questions. Good luck!” Now what? You have great plans for your new role, but you aren’t exactly sure what it is you should be doing or not doing in your new position. Nobody said that managing, supervising or leading would be easy but with the right expectations, tools and skills, you will learn what it takes to be an effective supervisor.

Make your move into your new supervisor position smoother and more successful. Attend this one-day class and gain all the skills and insights you need to lead with confidence and conviction. In this interactive workshop, participants will learn how to:

  • Define performance, behavior and attendance issues to be addressed
  • Make the transition from team member to supervisor
  • Avoid five supervisory “traps” that turn people off
  • Ask good questions and become a good listener
  • Be accountable and hold others accountable
  • Identify the responsibilities of a supervisor
  • Build a productive team
  • Manage yourself
