Supervisor Skills Training

soft skills with hard edge results

All too often people are promoted to the role of supervisor without any specific training in how to effectively handle people. Indeed, it's common for supervisors to be chosen from within a team because they are particularly bright and good at their non-supervising role - even though they may not have any particular supervisory experience or skills. This can present a great challenge, as supervising is a complex skill-set and it can be extremely difficult to establish the right level of authority and confidence in dealing with people who may only recently have been on equal terms.

Why Supervisor Skills Training?

Supervising the work of others requires a range of skills, from planning, delegating, instructing, monitoring, evaluating and giving constructive feedback. For anyone who has no previous experience in supervising, this can be a real challenge. Supervising does not come naturally to everyone, and all supervisors tend towards their own particular style, with their own particular strengths and weaknesses. These can be developed very effectively through training, where there's an opportunity to consider and explore good practice guidelines. This course is particularly helpful for anyone recently promoted to a supervisory role.
