Supervisor and Manager Development

Management ability isn’t innate; it’s learned, like any other behavioral skill. Yet, 50% of new managers report that they received no training before assuming the role. We don’t allow a new employee to run a machine or to enter data without training; should employees who are new to management be treated any differently? 

Supervisor/Manager Training Workshop Series    

Adults don’t learn much from a classroom lecture. Immediate relevance, both to their day-to-day jobs and to their careers, is critical to adult learners. For true knowledge transfer, multiple methods are necessary, including writing, presenting, interacting, role-playing and, of course, fun.

Training Your Managers to Coach

People, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities.” ― former CEO, Home Depot

Business coaching is about helping employees become more effective — and supporting and involving your employees in the process. Coaching influences employee adaptability, productivity, and retention. A study showed that organizations with senior leaders who coach effectively and frequently improve their business results by 21% compared to those who never coach.

*Maximum 50 participants

*Half day (3.5 hours) or full day (7 hours)

Individual Coaching

Following workshops, participants can be individually coached, merging the ideas they learned with the reality of the workplace. When supervisors and managers are coached, the organization can:

  • Overcome costly and time-consuming performance problems
  • Strengthen employees’ skills so they can take on more responsibilities
  • Boost productivity by helping the employees work smarter
  • Develop a deep bench of talent for growth and change
  • Improve retention; employees are more loyal and motivated when their bosses take time to help them improve their skills
