$110.00, 6.0 Training Hours, 6.0 PCB and LSW credits

One of the most critical roles in organizations that challenge leaders today is the ability to effectively supervise employees. Simply telling people what to do does not guarantee success. It also does not guarantee a motivated workforce. Supervisors know that a strong relationship with their employees is the critical foundation for successful performance. Success comes from the ability to inspire people through a variety of competencies that help employees do what is expected of them in a high quality way. Oftentimes, however, supervisors are provided with the least amount of training to develop the essential skills needed to be successful.
