Understand your strengths, effectively lead others
Great leaders are people of integrity who live their lives in accordance with a well-defined value system that can help inspire others to do and be their best. Through this interactive session, attendees will build skills for delegating in a structured, yet empowering manner. This dynamic workshop will focus on three key areas: meaningful self-appraisal, emotional intelligence and the art of delegation. Gain specific tools you can use to help attendees rediscover their areas of greatest strength as well as opportunities for improvement.
In this workshop, attendees will learn how to:
- Conduct an honest appraisal of personal abilities and challenges.
- Overcome personal challenges and cultivate personal strengths.
- Use emotional intelligence to drive professional results.
- Use the “art of empowerment” for effective delegation.
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.
Who Should Attend
Managers, supervisors, project managers, team leaders, business owners, aspiring managers and supervisors, and 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.
