Session 1: The Influence and Power of a Positive Supervisor

As supervisors, we set the tone in our programs and at times we feel overwhelmed and unappreciated. Join us for this humorous and informational session to renew your spirit and commitment. Learn how to develop strong, professional relationships with your staff. Create a center culture that demands performance excellence and exceptional customer service. Deliver difficult messages with confidence. You are one of the most powerful influences in your program. How are you using your influence?

Session 2: Learn to Let Go of Control, not Accountability 

Being an effective supervisor requires the delicate balance of letting go of control through delegation to and empowerment of staff while taking ultimate accountability for everything that happens in your program. Sounds tough? It is, but learn how to communicate expectations clearly, develop progress milestones and then stand back and watch your employees thrive. Your job is not to do everything, but make sure everything gets done.

Participants should arrive 5-10 minutes before class. No children allowed
