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. 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?

This course will provide an introduction to some fundamental leadership theory and skills.

Who Should Attend? This workshop is for those who are about to take on a supervision role, are brand new to supervision or those who are new to supervising part-time student or casual employees.  Priority will be given to those who meet these criteria.
