Leadership Skills for Supervisors: From Boss to Role Model, Coach, and Mentor

Supervisors who know how to lead, rather than just supervise, or worse yet, just tell people what to do, are a tremendous asset to their employer.
They inspire others to bring their best selves to work and give 110%.
They are able to unify diverse personalities around their employer’s mission and goals, and help people rise above the drama of personality conflicts.
When changes need implementation, they foster commitment rather than just compliance.
Growing one’s leadership skills not only helps supervisors increase their effectiveness, it also helps employers build their internal leadership pipeline.
Since supervisors account for 70 percent of employee engagement, according to Gallup’s research, helping supervisors develop their leadership skills directly impacts an organization’s ability to retain and engage employees.

This highly interactive seminar, we will address:

  1. Leadership myths that often confuse people and prevent them from recognizing their ability to lead.
  2. The difference between leading and managing.
  3. What practices and qualities separate good (and great) leaders from those who are not.
  4. How to recognize potential leadership blind spots that could diminish one’s effectiveness.
  5. What it means to be a Servant Leader and a Leader Without a Title
  6. How to begin integrating these practices into the workday.

Leadership Skills for Supervisors: From Boss to Role Model, Coach, and Mentor

  • David Lee

    David Lee, the founder of HumanNature@Work, works with employers who want to improve employee engagement, productivity, and customer service. He has worked with organizations and presented at conferences both domestically and abroad.

    An internationally recognized thought leader in the field of employee engagement and performance, he is the author of over 150 articles and book chapters that have been published in trade journals and books in the US, Europe, India, Australia, and China

    He is also the author of Dealing with a Difficult Co-Worker and Powerful Storytelling Techniques for Trainers (published by ASTD Press).

    In addition to his research and work with both struggling and “best in class” organizations, David Lee’s work draws from a wide range of scientific disciplines including cognitive neuroscience, anthropology, psychoneuroimmunology, trauma and resilience research, and paleopsychology.

    Taking this research which typically doesn’t find its way into the business world, David translates these principles of human nature into practical leadership and managerial strategies that optimize employee performance.

    To capture the impact understanding human nature makes, David borrows from the popular TV show The Dog Whisperer, and explains “Understanding human nature helps you become a People Whisperer, and by doing so, dramatically improves your ability to get the best results from others (and yourself).”

    Recently, his work on what makes organizations resilient and employees perform at their best has focused on the central role productive relationships and productive conversations have on these outcomes, with this being the take away message:

    “Every better business result you desire requires having a better conversation.”
