Supervisors who know how to lead, rather than just supervise, or worse yet, just tell people what to do, are a tremendous asset to their employer.
They inspire others to bring their best selves to work and give 110%.
They are able to unify diverse personalities around their employer’s mission and goals, and help people rise above the drama of personality conflicts.
When changes need implementation, they foster commitment rather than just compliance.
Growing one’s leadership skills not only helps supervisors increase their effectiveness, it also helps employers build their internal leadership pipeline.
Since supervisors account for 70 percent of employee engagement, according to Gallup’s research, helping supervisors develop their leadership skills directly impacts an organization’s ability to retain and engage employees.
This highly interactive seminar, we will address:

- How to recognize potential leadership blind spots that could diminish one’s effectiveness.
