What Works for Supervisors
is an important training experience to help supervisors achieve the results you desire – grounding them in their leadership and management role and responsibilities, and expanding their capacity to overcome the obstacles which can impede their success. The best of them learn to recognize, inspire, and reward good work. They see individual strengths, and assign tasks accordingly. They deal effectively with problems as they arise, and make decisions that help. They positively interact with others to guide the flow of work, and open up new channels of productivity. They contribute to creating a culture of lasting success growing people, and shaping the workforce of the future.
