July 9th: Stepping Up To Supervision: For New and Prospective Supervisors

Making the transition from employee to supervisor is a shift that can be challenging – especially if supervisors have received little training in how to handle their new responsibilities. This learning session is an opportunity for participants to consider what moving to a supervisory role means.  Often those who find themselves in this role on either a short-term, acting, or permanent basis discover that the job looks and feels different than anticipated.

This is a highly interactive, hands-on, practical, skill-building workshop using participants’ real front-line examples.


  • identify traits of your most effective supervisor
  • define the necessary mind-shift from co-worker to supervisor
  • recognize the common mistakes of new supervisors
  • analyse tips from seasoned supervisors
  • define “What’s my Role?” – an overview of what is now expected of you
  • practice giving and receiving feedback for positive results
  • develop a Plan of Action for immediate application back at work
