If you’re a manager or supervisor, ask yourself: What will motivate my staff? How can I get people to accomplish their duties quickly and productively? How can I instill cooperation and teamwork in my staff? How do I get a difficult employee to become a good employee? How can I continue to keep my employees energized and resourceful? This valuable class is designed to help participants overcome many of the supervisory problems that they will encounter as a workplace leader. Dealing with the problems that supervisors encounter isn't easy, but it doesn't have to lead to discouragement.

This class will enable you to expand on personal and on-the-job experiences by applying newly acquired skills and techniques used by leading management experts. Our instructor will walk you through practical, hands-on exercises, including problem-solving and other workplace scenarios. You’ll also take a self-assessment to see how well you manage diverse teams, and learn what you can do to better set your employees up for success. Plus, we’ll give you valuable tips for how to handle supervising friends or relatives.

This program is vital for all first-time managers and supervisors. It will also improve the skills of more experienced managers. Register today!
