Get your employees engaged through effective communication

Are your employee performance evaluations effective for you, your employees, and your business? The process of performance management is just that — a process. This online course will help you incorporate performance management into an ongoing process, which can lead to increased engagement, productivity, and loyalty. You will learn proven techniques for delivering effective feedback and performance appraisals, even when the situation may be challenging.

Learn how to:

  • Communicate clear, specific and measurable objectives
  • Identify and gather essential, objective performance data
  • Maintain a positive work climate
  • Use proven coaching techniques to improve productivity
  • Strengthen work relationships through effective communication

This course can be taken individually or as part of the Supervisory Management Certificate Program. This is a core (required) course. Complete the three core courses plus take any six days of electives 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.

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 

“I’ve learned so many valuable skills throughout this series. There were key takeaways from every class that I was excited to implement. It was neat to be in the classes with other leaders across various industries because networking with them would get me thinking from different angles.”
--Wendy Rindfleish, Assistant Manager, Security Health Plan 

How the Certificate Works: 

You’ll take 3 core classes plus 3 electives in 5 years.
