SUPERVISING OTHERS
Human Resources

Supervising others can be a tough job. Between managing your own time and projects, helping your team members solve problems, completing tasks, and helping other supervisors, your day can fill up before you know it. This training program will help supervisors become more efficient and proficient, with information on delegating, managing time, setting goals, expectations, providing feedback, resolving conflict, and administering discipline. This training program will teach you how to work through the four steps of setting expectations: (1) Define the requirements (2) Identify opportunities for improvement and growth (3) Discuss the requirements (4) Putting it all in writing. Just as important as what tasks you assign to individuals is how you assign them. Allowing employees to have a say in what tasks they perform and how they perform them can increase job satisfaction and performance exponentially. However, there are often situations where tasks need to be assigned quickly, or you may require menial tasks that no one really wants to do, but needs to be completed. This training program will give you several ways to assign work and explore which methods are appropriate. Many supervisors feel that by giving tasks to others, they’re giving their power away. This simply isn’t true! Delegation is one of the most valuable skills you will ever learn. By delegating the tasks that you don’t really need to do, you free up time for those high-reward projects. Even better, delegating doesn’t have to be all or nothing. In this training program you will learn about the degrees of delegation and when to use each of them. At first sight, delegation can feel like more hassle than it’s worth. However, by delegating effectively, you can hugely expand the amount of work that you can deliver. When you arrange the workload so that you are working on the tasks that have the highest priority for you, and other people are working on meaningful and challenging assignments, you have a recipe for success. This training program will help develop skills and behaviors necessary for successful supervision of people and job responsibilities. You will learn the managerial functions as applied to leadership, counseling and motivation.
