The Nuts and Bolts of Being a Supervisor


1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.


Most of us are not born supervisors, but we can become effective supervisors. As a supervisor, you're the one in charge, but you know all too well that your job description doesn't even begin to cover the many roles you actually fill. In today's world, supervisors and their teams have more complex relationships than ever before.

A supervisor must be a boss, a coach, and a mediator.

This workshop will provide solid skills to help you maximize your role as a supervisor, plus provide fresh ideas to motivate you and your team. You'll learn how to provide meaningful praise, enhance your communication skills, and keep top performers at their maximum level without burning out. Hands-on training will help you learn the key to success for:

  • Motivating and praising
  • Delivering criticism and discipline
  • Working under pressure and meeting tight deadlines
  • Organizing people, projects, and schedules
  • Training new employees

You won't be the only one who enjoys the benefits of your enhanced supervisory skills. Everyone at your organization will benefit - your own supervisor, your team, and everyone else who profits from the stronger leadership, improved productivity, and fresh insight you'll bring to the workplace.


  • Discover how to apply the most appropriate supervisory style to each employee.
  • Learn to speak, write, and communicate clearly and tactfully.
  • Learn to plan, organize, communicate, and monitor results.
  • Understand your legal responsibilities as a supervisor.
  • Learn management skills to help give constructive criticism.
  • Understand how to maximize productivity by leveraging diversity and individual differences
