Event Description

New managers and supervisors are often not prepared for the challenges that come with being responsible for managing others. Succeeding in a supervisory role requires more than operational expertise–it takes understanding the expectations others have of you, learning to balance operational and personnel demands, establishing your personal credibility and authority, and creating a productive environment.

At the end of this class you will be able to:

  • identify what management and your employees expect from you as a supervisor.
  • recognize specific practices that positively and negatively impact a supervisor’s success and effectiveness.
  • explain the characteristics, strengths and vulnerabilities of four basic leadership styles.
  • appropriately adjust your leadership style for different employees and situations.
  • increase the frequency and ways in which you recognize and reward positive performance.
  • assess the strengths/weaknesses of your current work group environment and identify opportunities to improve or enhance this environment.

Topics that will be covered:

  • Making the Transition–Supervising, Managing and Leading Others
  • Starting Out on the Right Foot–Identifying Expectations
  • How Do Your People View You?
  • Four Basic Leadership Styles
  • Common Employee Types and How to Supervise Them
  • Creative Ways to Recognize and Reward Positive Performance
  • Building a Strong “Infrastructure”–the Components of a Productive, Positive Work Environment
