An important role that supervisors and managers play is to influence and guide those with whom they work. It can be a challenge because personality style and past experiences affect attitudes and behaviors and, ultimately, job performance and team success. This session will address how, as a supervisor, you can coach employees to break through negative and limiting behaviors that may keep them from performing at their best. You'll learn how to work with people to find better and more positive ways to deal with the challenges they face.
