Stepping Up to Supervisor: a Preparation Course for Front-Line Workers Moving into a Lead or Supervisory Role
This in-service course will help your staff learn:
- what supervisors are really supposed to do - from a task and interpersonal perspective
- how to make a successful transition from peer to supervisor
- essential interpersonal skills required for the job
- about role of a mentor and support system in facilitating the transition
- how to develop a personal plan to hone your skills and comfort level
This course, usually delivered in two days, provides front-line workers with the opportunity to learn essential skills to prepare them for a supervisory or team leader role.
We will address the specific issues that arise when a front-line worker moves from a peer to a supervisor. In addition, we’ll address the unique role of the “working supervisor” – the team leader who is also responsible for front-line duties. Emphasis will be on identifying the benefits and challenges of “stepping up to supervisor” and on identifying positive approaches to the challenges that arise.
