The Duh! Approach to Management and Supervision

Dispelling Common Leadership Myths: The Duh! Approach to Management and Supervision

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This program is scheduled as a face-to-face classroom training during the Fall 2020 semester, but may be moved online due to future recommendations for distance learning due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Any updates will be posted on this page and all enrolled students will be notified by email of any anticipated curtailments.

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.
