Strong leaders are needed to take initiative, think strategically, empower others and set and carry out a vision. The supervisor, in particular, plays a key role in the success of any organization. Attendees will explore and define many of the competencies required of those who serve in the role of supervisor. This training is for both current and newly promoted supervisors, but also helpful to those who are considering a supervisory position.
This two-session training takes place from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, May 7th and 21st at Eliot Community Human Services in Lexington.
In this session, you will:
- Learn what skills are required of today’s leaders;
- Learn how leadership is different from management;
- Practice the core skills needed for new supervisors; and
- Understand how to increase staff engagement and competence.
Accelerated Learning Component:
The time period between the two sessions will provide an excellent opportunity to practice new knowledge and skills. Each participant will create a “thought and action” plan at the end of the first session, listing practices and techniques they want to implement right away. At the beginning of the second session, participants are invited to share the steps taken towards implementation of the new techniques.
