Stepping Up to Supervision

Stepping Up to Supervision
Date: October 4, 2017
Time: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Location: Room 224, Student Union Building

An important part of supervising the performance of others is the challenge of being a ‘leader’. This program will help you to understand the role of leadership and to learn the fundamental skills and strategies needed to be effective in a supervisory role. This course will provide an introduction to some fundamental leadership theory and skills.  Issues to be addressed include:

  • What is the difference between ‘leading’ and ‘managing’?
  • How does a leader determine what ‘success’ is?
  • How do you address performance concerns without getting people’s backs up?
  • How do you motivate short-term staff members who are not planning to be around for long?

Who Should Attend? This workshop is for those who are either:
about to take on a supervision role
- brand new to supervision (6 months or less) 
- supervising part-time students or casual employees

Noteif you are already a DPMG Supervisor (ie: 1-3 years in the role) there is a comprehensive Supervisory Development Program (2 full days plus 4 half days) for "new" supervisors that will begin in January 2018.
