Skilled, intentional, and strategic supervision is integral to organizational success and employee satisfaction. Effective supervisors, whether new to the role or coming with a wealth of experience, tap into self-awareness, are adaptive, and leverage a range of interpersonal skills. Using these practices, a supervisor creates a culture of mutual respect — one in which employees and supervisors communicate regularly and clearly about job-related expectations, tasks, and overall performance.  

Through this 120-minute session on adaptive supervision, participants will: 

  • Review and reflect on a “Job Description of a Supervisor”   
  • Identify their preferred supervisory style  
  • Learn how to identify what individual staff need around various aspects of their jobs and their particular challenges 
  • Understand the importance of adapting their supervisory approach and communication style in support of staff success, and how to put that into practice 

Target audience: Supervisors with all levels of experience; from emerging supervisors to those with many years of experience
