What You Will Learn


Supervisors Boot Camp--Summer 2017

Supervisor's Boot Camp Agenda
9:15am - 10:30am

Now You’re In Charge: Building and Establishing Credibility with Your Employees:
As a leader, establishing credibility is the corner- stone of your effectiveness. Leaders who are credible are better able to build relationships, control and manage work, and get things done. What is credibility? How do you develop it? And just as important, who needs to believe you are credible? In this session you’ll discover how others define credibility. You’ll learn eight strategies for gaining the trust of your boss, your employees, and key members of your organization.
Instructor: Lynne Richards


10:45am - 12:00pm

Work Teams and The Wizard of Oz:
Since 1939, MGM’s film, The Wizard of Oz, has delighted and entertained audiences of all ages and backgrounds. “I have a feeling we are not in Kansas anymore,” Dorothy tells Toto with awe.  Not so different from our own experiences in today’s changing organizations, where we find ourselves in unfamiliar territory and are asked to perform the impossible.  Learn how this timeless story depicts the most basic framework of teamwork and team member roles. Recognize the seven keys to effective teamwork and how we too can achieve the impossible with creative thinking, courage and heart and that the most powerful “Wizard” of all, lives within us. 
Instructor: Lynne Richards


1:00pm - 2:15pm

Goal Setting
Goal setting is an essential part of the management process – it’s difficult to measure success if we haven’t defined it.  In this session, you will learn how to create specific, measureable, achievable goals.  Furthermore, you’ll learn how to use those goals to motivate yourself and others, and how to incorporate goal setting into the performance review process.  Find out when to include others in setting goals, and when to go at it alone.  Finally, you’ll be able to link specific goals to larger objectives and ultimately, to your vision of success.
Instructor: Tess George


2:30pm - 3:45pm

Motivating Others:
Are you finding it difficult to keep your group motivated?  Research indicates that while money is important to employees, it doesn’t always motivate them.  Learn what does, and what you can do to make the most of those factors.  You will learn what most employees find motivating, what motivates specific types of employees, and how to use motivators that really work.
