Foundations of Supervision Series

Keep Great People, Build skills, See Results.

Studies show that people don’t leave companies, they leave the person who directs their daily work. To help you retain your top talent, we equip your supervisors, managers and leads with the tools they need to better manage (and thus retain) those top performers.
These front line leaders are the keys to a healthy and productive culture. They are in charge of getting results with people. If you take the time to invest in developing their skills, the results you want will follow.

Why is this training important?

It retains your top performers. It can make employees more productive. If your supervisors not only know the processes (whether it’s the front office or on the production floor) but also are skilled in communication, they will be more effective in ensuring smooth running operations. In addition, having qualified  supervisors increases retention through positive employee relationships.

Here’s what we can do for you:

We offer a series of eight two-hour content specific sessions, delivered on-site. Participants will receive an electronic certificate of completion after completing each session of the series.

Core class topics include:
  • Transition from Peer to Supervisor
  • Understand workplace compliance issues
  • Realize the importance of professional writing and documentation
  • Communicate effectively to achieve results
  • Create a positive, civil work environment and resolve issues
  • Recognize and address substance use issues in the workplace
  • Build teamwork and cooperation among employees
  • And much more!

Content can be customized to your specific learning objectives and business needs.
