A waitlist is available for the new, two-day offering, Success as a New Supervisor, on Oct. 4th and 18th. The sessions will help current supervisors and those considering a supervisory role to learn what skills are required of today’s leaders and how leadership differs from management; to practice the core skills needed by new supervisors; and to understand how to increase staff engagement and competence. Email Amanda McCarthy about the waitlist.
