Learn to Lead High-Performing Teams
Whether you are a new supervisor, mid-level manager, executive leader, or project manager, there is one thing in common: you need to have the critical skills needed to lead high-performing teams. Individual and organizational success depends on how well we can work together to work towards a common goal. Teamwork doesn’t happen on its own. Leaders need to have the skills to continuously refine and clarify department goals and know how to select the right people for the right positions.
In this program, you will learn how to organize, motivate, and lead high performing teams. You will also learn how to organize and facilitate effective team meetings. This hands-on training will engage you through role-play, team problem-solving tasks, analyze video clips, and participate in small group discussions.
You will learn:
- How to establish essential boundaries and expectations that drive team success
- How to implement critical elements necessary for teams to perform at a high functional level
- The key reasons why many teams struggle and often fail
- The primary ingredients for team success, that when accomplished, will make other challenges seem easier.
- How to organize and facilitate efficient and productive team meetings.
Who Should Attend
Managers, supervisors, project managers, team leaders, business owners, aspiring managers and supervisors, anyone who manages the work of others.
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.
