Learn effective strategies for supervision and gain practical tools to support your team in just 4 weeks.
All too often in higher education, individuals move into a supervisory role without the necessary tools and skills to be successful. Particularly in today’s challenging environments, effective supervision is key to building an equally effective culture where each individual can contribute to team success.
Join us online for a four-week bootcamp specifically designed for higher education supervisors who are new to their roles or looking to deepen their skills.
Week 1: Setting up the Supervisory Relationship
Starting: October 2, 2023
Format: On-Demand | Time Commitment: Approximately 2 hours
The course begins with a session on how to better understand your supervisory style, articulate it to your direct reports as a means of setting up the relationship, and how you might adapt that style in line with your reports’ needs and what the situation calls for.
Week 2: Performance Management
Starting: October 9, 2023 | Live Session: October 13, 2023 (1:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET)
