You have found yourself called into a new role of supervisor. You are now responsible for – not only your own impact but – that the performance of your people. Your day-to-day dealings may now include more issues, higher intensity, greater challenges in people and levels of authority…and great opportunity to help people see how they make a difference and engage them in doing it better!
The Introduction to Supervision program is a comprehensive, three-day study of the challenges and skills of supervision. It offers the opportunity to participate in and learn from a wide range of discussions, role plays, demonstrations, case studies and real-life problem-solving situations. Activities, lectures and videos are used to emphasize and illustrate key points.
