Supervision Essentials Series

The Supervision Essentials Program (6.4 CEUs) is a series of four classes geared for new and upcoming frontline supervisors who want to keep their knowledge and skills consistent with, or a step ahead of, the demands of the workplace.  The program focuses on developing practical skills in key areas related to successfully supervising and leading today’s employees.  It provides an excellent opportunity for newer supervisors – and those looking to move into a supervisory position – to move beyond the “basics,” to a more advanced understanding of supervisory skills and competencies. 

Some of the benefits of the Supervision Essentials Program are learning the fundamental concepts of supervising with confidence and how to build working relationships that get results.  This program focuses on effective communication, efficient time management, and how to solve conflicts with poise and control.
