Learn to delegate, onboard, and time manage your employees
Are you capitalizing on all of the skills and assets your employees have to offer? One challenge many managers face is effectively delegating tasks across their team in order to maximize time management. This course will provide you with the leadership skills to create a productive and accountable team environment. You will learn to understand effective delegation and how to improve performance through communication and feedback.
Learn how to:
- Optimize the orientation and onboarding process
- Improve employee engagement, productivity, and retention
- Boost the time management skills of you and your team
- Drive team success by avoiding common delegation pitfalls
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.
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.
