ESSENTIAL SKILLS FOR SUPERVISORS - Fall 2021
Be the leader you were meant to be!
1. The Role of Management, Leadership, and Coaching
(September 15, 2021 – CRN# 31174)
Many Supervisors in the workplace today have never received any formal supervisory training for their role. They may have been a great employee, which is usually the reason they were promoted, but moving from managing yourself to supervising other people can be an incredible leap. This workshop is designed for both new and experienced Supervisors who wish to move beyond basic management skills and develop strong abilities to better lead their teams and shape their corporate culture.
This workshop links theory to practice with hands-on, action-based essential skills focused on:
- Differentiation of roles;
- Developing consistent attitudes with flexible strategies;
- A CLEAR coaching model;
- Leadership Styles;
- Leadership and Coaching Self-Assessment; and
- The language of leadership.
2. Resolving Conflicts and Difficult Situations
(September 22, 2021 – CRN# 31175)
Challenging situations are a fact of life in any workplace. These situations arise for a variety of reasons including our own or other people’s behaviours, conflicts of interest, personality clashes, errors, and a variety of unexpected circumstances. If managed well, they can have a powerful and positive effect. But if managed poorly, or ignored, they can be disastrous for business as conflicts negatively affect staff morale, efficiency, and commitment. In this highly interactive workshop geared specifically for Supervisors, participants will not only learn effective strategies to resolve conflicts and difficult situations with sensitivity and respect, they will also participate in active role-playing to hone their skills.

COVID-19 has changed what business leadership looks like, now and for the foreseeable future. And it’s important to understand that your pre-pandemic leadership style and strategies, that once worked well, may not be effective now.

help you build the skills and strategies required to embrace the radical changes that have already happened,
and the changes to come. During the workshop, participants will explore:
