Building Effective Relationships (Day 1): Building effective relationships with the team members is one of the best strategies to ensure team performance and prevent future conflict. By focusing on relationships, you gain trust and respect. This session will examine personality differences, generational differences, and how to proactively build trust. Your Legal Responsibilities (Day 2): Supervisors must protect the organization from liability. This session explores the legal responsibilities of the supervisory role examining best practice solutions for discrimination, sexual harassment, and progressive discipline process. Communicating Successfully (Day 2): Successful communication requires more than just speaking your mind loudly enough for others to hear you. Sharpen your written and verbal communication skills to maximize understanding, and minimize confusion among those with whom you communicate. Leading High Performance Teams (Day 3): Learn how to set team boundaries and communicate expectations to increase the commitment and performance of your employees. Conflict Resolution (Day 3): In the workplace, even healthy differences can escalate into conflict. Addressing it quickly and effectively is a crucial supervisory skill. Coaching Employees (Day 4): Learn the coaching tools you need to motivate, delegate, and diagnose performance problems, provide performance feedback, and facilitate the problem-solving process with employees.  more...
