Employee empowerment and motivation
Organizations are starving for competent and trustworthy leadership, both formal and informal influencers who are internally driven to create a better future for themselves and their organization. But how do we develop people who can exercise the courage to take initiative towards that pursuit? This leadership program specifically pinpoints ways to help transform your key players into ethical and influential self-directed leaders. Beginning with obtaining compliance in on-the-job competencies and emotional maturity, and move towards inspiring others to go beyond that, you begin to transform employee mentality into one of commitment to performing at peak level while inspiring others around them.
Learn how to:
- Establish a climate of trust that motivates people to embrace commitment over compliance
- Coaching techniques that set you and others up for success
- Styles of leadership required for diverse situations
- Assess employee performance and determine appropriate leadership action
- Develop your own personal leadership principles that guide your work and set your organization apart
This course can be taken individually or as part of the Supervisory Management Certificate Program. This is an elective course. Take any six days of electives plus the three core courses to complete your certificate.
Let’s face it—expertise in a chosen career field doesn’t automatically make someone a good supervisor. Supervisors must learn important soft skills to confidently manage a team of people and do it well.
If you’ve been promoted to supervisor but aren’t sure you have the skills to supervise well; if you’re looking to advance into a supervisor position; or if you’ve been supervising a team for a while and have struggled through conflict and communication issues, a certificate in supervisory management may be just what you need!
Working for this certificate will help you:
- Gain confidence in your leadership skills
- Communicate better with your team
- Encourage your team to be more productive
- Deal with conflict effectively
- Find success and advance toward your career goals
Your instructors are experts in management and leadership who will share their knowledge, experiences, and best practices face to face. Learn and share insights with other students to really make the most of the seminars.
How the Certificate Works:
You’ll take three, 2-day core classes covering the most important supervisory skills (Learning to Lead; Orientation, Time Management, and Delegation; Employee Evaluation and Performance Management), plus six more days of electives in 1- or 2-day format that enhances specific skills you want to build on.
Each 2-day seminar earns you 1.3 Continuing Education Units (CEUs); each 1-day seminar earns you 0.65 CEUs. A total of 7.8 CEUs is required to earn your certificate. You can take up to five years to complete the program.
Not interested in taking the whole certificate? You can also take classes individually.
