Supervisory Leadership Series
Supervision is a key factor to the success of any business that has employees. Often, people have not learned how to supervise and lead in an effective manner because they just learned from experience versus having training and skill development in supervision. This series is designed to offer core supervisory leadership skills development with a minimum time commitment.
You may choose individual programs, but participants benefit most from taking the entire series and save 10% over the cost of individual sessions.
Communication and Delegation Skills
Whether you are communicating with your employees, customers, or suppliers your ability to express yourself well and understand is a major factor of your success. You will get feedback on your behavioral and communication style using the DiSC Personal Profile System and use this self-awareness to strengthen your business relationships. You will leave the session with a personal plan for improving your communication skills. Effectively delegating important decisions and actions to others is a fundamental skill that enables you to grow your business. During this seminar, you will learn the foundations of what you need to do to enable your employees to willingly take more responsibility for performance and use their expanded authority well.
