Successful supervisors are able to maintain and enhance the self-esteem of their team members. This is one of the most valuable skills a supervisor can have. It is the ability to provide direction, communicate effectively, coach people, evaluate performance, correct work habits, deal with complaints, and resolve conflicts while supporting a team member’s sense of self-respect and dignity.

While managing others isn’t always easy, it doesn’t have to lead to discouragement. Your success as a supervisor is measured in terms of the way your employees perform. You have to make sure that the work gets done, costs are controlled, employees work as a team, and upper management is satisfied.

This workshop for supervisors is designed to strengthen current supervisory skills by helping participants overcome many of the supervisory challenges they may encounter as a leader. The participants will grow their understanding of responsible leadership and high performance leadership of teams as we explore the basic skills needed to effectively manage a work group.
