Supervision & Leadership Modules

The modular design of our supervision and leadership training allows you to choose the content that is most relevant to your organization. Regardless of the modules you choose for your group's training program, we tailor content to fit your company.  If you have a group to train, we'll customize a solution.

Effective Supervision

Immediate supervisors in any organization have a significant effect on employee engagement, performance and behavior. Effective Supervision is designed to help supervisors understand their responsibilities and the impact of their actions while developing attitudes, behaviors and skills for supervising effectively. Effective Supervision is ideal for both new supervisors and experienced supervisors at any level within the organization who haven't recently had the benefit of formal supervisory training. Participants in this four-day training course develop skills for effective communication, building and maintaining productive work relationships, managing performance, developing employees, and managing change. Throughout Effective Supervision, participants are actively involved in their learning, and have the opportunity to practice skills and techniques in class. Each participant will recognize his/her personal strengths and opportunities for further development. At the conclusion of training, participants evaluate their progress in applying skills learned in training and create personal plans for ongoing development.
