Upcoming Seminar - The ABCs Of Supervising Others - 17th & 18th October 2013 @ Sarova Stanley, Nairobi, Kenya.

This workshop is for people who are new supervisors or who are interested in a supervisory position, as well as those who are lead hands or part-time supervisors without a great deal of authority.

This workshop is designed to help participants overcome many of the supervisory problems they will encounter in their first few weeks as a boss. Dealing with the many problems a new supervisor encounters isn’t easy, but it doesn’t have to lead to discouragement.

Specific objectives of this workshop:

  • Clarify roles and responsibilities of the new job
  • Adjust to the new role with confidence and the knowledge you can handle the position
  • Develop skills in listening, asking questions, resolving conflict, and giving feedback to employees
  • Develop a technique for giving employees clear instructions
  • Identify techniques to deal with employee challenges, such as hostility, complaints, and laziness
  • Understand the importance of developing good relationships with employees and peers
