Leading for Performance
Being an effective supervisor isn’t always easy. Supervisors are called upon to keep operations running smoothly, communicate management’s direction, manage daily responsibilities, implement changes, and keep their employees safe. On top of this, supervisors must lead by example, be a positive influence and be consistent with the message they deliver to their co-workers.
By developing some key skills, supervisors can organize and manage their workloads, and cultivate rewarding relationships in the workplace.
In this two-day workshop participants will be introduced to best industry practices and provided with ideas and practical tools to take back to the workplace. Students will be given the skills they need to build health and safety into their everyday planning, how to create and promote a positive work environment, and how to prioritize performance goals and safety into one – Safe Production.
Intended for individuals who are new to the supervisory position and want to develop their team leadership skills and unleash the talent of their individual team members.
