Supervisory Certificate Series - Zoom Sessions


This series of course work is designed to enhance your supervisory skills. Careful consideration has been given to the design of this series to ensure participants will be engaged in their learning and fully participate through skills practice, mini-assignments, and interactive group exercises.

All sessions run from 8:30am until 12:30pm.

Content includes:

Day 1 Understanding Self & Others (May 13, 2021)
This dynamic workshop provides supervisors insight into their individual strengths and talents to assist them in effectively balancing their roles and responsibilities.  Through this expanded knowledge, supervisors will be able to build trust while providing the appropriate guidance and support to their team.

Note: Participants are required to take Gallup’s CliftonStrengths 34 assessment prior to this session and bring their report with them to Day 1.

Day 2 Communicating Successfully (May 14, 2021)
In today’s fast-paced business environment, successful communication requires more than just speaking your mind loudly enough for others to hear you. This workshop will sharpen verbal communication skills to maximize understanding and improve relationships. 

Day 3 Building Relationships (May 20, 2021)
Building on Day’s 1 and 2 information, supervisors will establish the foundation for developing strong, effective relationships in order to minimize conflict and develop employees. This interactive workshop will focus on delivering candid conversations, giving feedback, and establishing an environment of accountability.

Day 4 Coaching Employees (May 21, 2021)
The final day of the series, will be a culmination of skills learned.  We will focus on engagement strategies, performance coaching, and ways to enhance the working environment so that employees thrive and achieve results.
