While each topic will be covered at an introductory level, we will more specifically dive into three applicable topics. First, we will dive deeper into Organizing the Work, & specifically, the five conflict styles & how to handle conflict effectively. Second, participants will take a deeper look at Developing Your Staff, which includes learning about the differences between Leadership & Management. And finally, the group will focus on Managing Relations by learning about the four different communication styles & how to work most effectively with each. To close out the training, the facilitator will ask participants to put the five supervisory skills to work with a hands-on, competitive activity. This provides the opportunity to highlight each of the supervisory skills with real-time examples.
