Stepping Up - A Roadmap for New Supervisors

The goal of this one-day workshop is to provide participants with an accurate, real-life picture of what it means to be a supervisor, the expectations for the position, the skills and knowledge required as a supervisor, and the path to effectively supervise others.

Recommend course:


A supervisor's job involves many day-to-days such as planning, budgeting, problem solving and those tasks specifically associated with production and administration. This one-day workshop, however, is focussed primarily on people skills. By placing emphasis on this, we recognise that interacting with people is the foundation for success in every supervisory endeavour.
