Supervisors represent an important force in the economy. You have the power to turn on or turn off the productivity of the people who report to you. You are the crucial interface between the employee on the shop floor or the service desk and the managers of the organization. Although you usually have more technical experience than the employees you supervise, you may not have had a lot of leadership experience. This course will give you the skills in communication, coaching, and conflict that you need to be successful. On completion of this course, participants will learn ways to prioritize, plan, and manage your time; identify your primary leadership style; develop some flexibility to use other leadership styles; determine ways you can meet the needs of employees and co-workers through communication and coaching; explore ways to make conflict a powerful force for creative, well-rounded solutions to problems..
