Upcoming training for supervisors
There are two different trainings. One is a 1-day session for those stepping up to a supervisory role and the other is a multi-day program for new DPMG Supervisors. Please read the descriptions below for information on who should attend.
1. Stepping up to Supervision – October 4, 2017
Who Should Attend?
This one day workshop is for those who are either:
· about to take on a supervision role
· brand new to supervision (6 months or less) or
· supervising part-time students or casual employees
The session will help you to understand the role of leadership and to learn some fundamental skills and strategies needed to be effective in a supervisory role.
- What is the difference between ‘leading’ and ‘managing’?
- How does a leader determine what ‘success’ is?
- How do you address performance concerns without getting people’s backs up?
- How do you motivate short-term staff members who are not planning to be around for long?
