Supervisors Boot Camp - Summer 2018

The Supervisors Boot Camp is an intensive one-day workshop specifically designed for individuals who have been newly promoted to the supervisor’s role, will soon works as a supervisor, or for those who wish to refresh their supervisory skills.

In 2018, the annual program will feature presentations from Dr. Gerri King, author of The Duh! Book of Management & Supervision, and Tammy Jordan, Founder of Leader Consulting Group.

Boot Camp presentations will include:

Dispelling Common Leadership Myths: The Duh! Approach to Management and Supervision – Dr. Gerri King

People are promoted because they're good at their jobs, not necessarily because they are good leaders. Being in a leadership position is a very different job, for which most are not trained. This workshop dispels myths associated with effective leadership and provides common sense approaches. Participants will: learn what works and what doesn't; assess and re-think commonly held beliefs about effective leadership; learn ways to enhance communication and increase motivation; leave with immediately applicable skills that they can incorporate into their management and supervisory styles. Time will be allotted for how best to share potential changes with employees and colleagues. In keeping with the topic, the session will be both didactic and experiential.

Building Effective & Productive Teams – Tammy Jordan

In effective and productive teams, members know how to best contribute their unique skills and talents to achieve results that individual effort alone can’t reach.  As the most critical role in leading the team to achieve their goals, Supervisors must navigate the many components and stages of productive teams. In this session, participants will learn strategies, techniques and specific actions to create successful team dynamics and facilitate results.  Some specific topics to be reviewed include: team selection, building trust, facilitating communication, moving past conflict and overcoming challenges.

Creating Clarity: Setting Expectations, Boundaries and Goals – Tammy Jordan

All great performance begins with clear expectations and goals. Without these, employees seldom reach their greatest potential. Unfortunately, nearly seven out of ten supervisors and managers struggle to provide effective clarity to their employees. In this session, participants will learn methods, techniques and practical how-tos for establishing expectations, setting boundaries and providing clear and understood goals. Some specific topics to be reviewed include:  creating SMART goals; expectation definition namely quantity, quality, accuracy, timeliness and relationships; and, communication/delivery best practices.
