Anyone who supervises staff knows that it can be a very time-consuming part of your job. We developed the Supervisory Skills series to give supervisors the skills they need to make effective supervision almost second nature. The series is divided into three parts currently offered in fall, winter and spring with each part focusing on a different key area of supervision.

Supervisory Skills I: Principles of Supervision
Supervisors have the responsibility to manage not only their own time and performance, but their staff's as well. Designed for new supervisors with little or no formal training, as well as experienced supervisors looking for new strategies to motivate, manage and communicate, this series provides real-world knowledge that can be applied immediately. Each program is comprised of three or four one-day sessions that have a very specific focus. Ideally, supervisors take the complete three-part series for an in-depth learning experience. However, each program is designed to stand alone as is each one-day session. This allows you the flexibility to enroll in the complete series, take just one program or select the individual sessions that are most relevant to your needs. Receive a certificate of completion after finishing Supervisory Skills I, II and III.
