Essential Skills for Supervisors


Overview

Gain a comprehensive overview of essential supervisory ‘people’ skills. This training includes interactive group discussions, helpful scenarios and case studies.

Business need

The transition from team member to team leader can be tough. Supervisors are key members of the management team and have the closest contact with the people who actually produce the work. It is therefore important that supervisors receive adequate support and training. Failure to ensure that they have the proper skills and knowledge to carry out their pivotal role can have a negative effect on the motivation and productivity of those whom they supervise. This session will enable you to become effective quickly and enables you to understand how your role fits into the organisation and the importance of communicating with, leading and motivating your team. It also explores the importance of monitoring absence, how to identify bullying in the workplace and managing discipline and grievances.

All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.

Suitable For

Newly promoted supervisors/team leaders or those who wish to build on their present expertise in any of the subject areas covered.
