Effective staff management is essential to completing work and employee satisfaction and retention. Managing staff isn’t easy with employees that work hybrid or virtual, off site at programs or are transitioning back to the office.

Whether you are new to the role or are a supervisor with extensive knowledge, our new working world requires supervisors to communicate regularly and have clarity around expectations, tasks and job performance. As a supervisor, there is a balance between micro-managing and believing in the skills of your employees for why you hired them in their roles.

This workshop will dive into supervision strategies including monitoring, feedback, supervision methods and how to build a high-performing team.
