Supervisory Development

The Supervisor role is the direct connection between workers and management. Supervisors take upper management goals and by delegating tasks to workers, they see that those goals are met. Supervisors are generally promoted from a worker position and very often have no formal training as supervisors. There are many skills that supervisors need such as organization, creativity, human relation skills, and a positive attitude. Our Supervisory Development course focuses on these 14 chapters including:

  • The Successful Supervisor
  • You and Your "Self"
  • Managing and Controlling Your Use of Time
  • Organizational Communication
  • Developing Subordinates
  • Goal Setting
  • Confidence: The Successful Ingredient
  • Motivation
  • Performance Appraisal
  • Decision Making and Problem Solving
  • Your Action Plan
  • Leading for Results
  • Communication
  • Discipline: Word and Concept

The Supervisory Development Course members meet weekly for 8-10 weeks. Sessions are 2-3 hours. Participants will have application and practice time between sessions in order to Develop their skills, and all sessions end with goals and actions steps to be accomplished by the next session. Participants will give themselves at least five exposures between sessions which will result in content retention of more than 60%. Leaders will also meet three times quarterly following the last session to present progress reports on goals, and additional meetings may be offered as needed.
