Building Supervisory Relationships

Most people are promoted to supervisory positions because they have technical expertise. Then they manage staff based on what they did or did not like in their own supervision.

This workshop takes the ambiguity out of being a supervisor and identifies the importance of building a partnership between supervisor and employee in order to create an environment of trust, responsibility, and personal accountability.

Participants will:

  • Be provided with clear and practical steps to establishing or enhancing the supervisory relationship
  • Learn how to define, communicate, and elicit performance expectations and working agreements
  • Practice the art of constructive feedback to assist staff in reaching their full potential and to make the most of opportunities for learning
