Workshop Description:

Effective supervision contributes directly to mission effectiveness for your nonprofit. It is critical to maintaining a productive staff in the face of shifting and competing priorities. Strong supervision creates a culture of mutual respect in which employees and supervisors communicate regularly and clearly about job-related expectations, tasks and overall performance.

Through this highly participatory training designed for supervisors with all levels of experience, you will:

  • Identify your preferred supervisory style
  • Learn to recognize what supervisory approaches are most effective under different conditions
  • Consider when to adapt your style and practice doing so
  • Strengthen a variety of critical forms of supervisory communication 

Target audience: Supervisors with all levels of experience.
