Advanced Supervisory Academy Training Series


Advanced Supervisory Academy

In order to be an effective people leader, you need to continuously grow and change. It’s not enough to be technically competent. You also need to embrace your role as a leader – creating clarity for your work team, facilitating involvement, leading team process, leading your team through change, and getting results with and through others.

Join our all-new Advanced Supervisory Academy to learn more about transforming your work team, achieving goals together, and unleashing the creative power of your group.

If you supervise or manage others and have a desire to get better results with your team then this Academy is for you. The program will prepare you to tap into the energy of each group member, creating a higher degree of satisfaction and fulfillment for all – while getting great results!

We know it can be difficult to be out of the office for any reason - even to support your own development. But the cost of NOT leveraging the power of your team is also at stake. Low engagement, dissatisfaction, and wasted energy all act like invisible drains on your systems. Don’t let this happen to your work team! Take advantage of this flagship course. Join us today!

This new Academy is delivered in four modules of two classes each. Attend one or attend them all!

Making Meetings Work
Meetings should be lively forums where creative work gets done. Unfortunately, far too often, our meetings are unfocused, uninteresting, and end up being a colossal waste of time. But it doesn’t have to be like this! Now that you understand the role of a facilitative leader, you’ll be prepared to:

  • Design a powerful group event using the RPR method
  • Practice powerful group management techniques that will help you get the best from others, stay on task and on track, and engage even the most introverted members of your staff in a safe and inviting way

Date: 2 Mon., October 8 & 15   
Time: 1:30 - 4:30 pm                    
Cost: $148

  • Learn to create a medium or short term plan – with your team
  • Craft a work plan that involves all of your team and gets a high degree of buy-in
  • Prioritize the Critical Few - the most important actions that will get results
  • Help your team members negotiate interdependencies and hold each other accountable, so that you can lead, rather than spend all of your time doing hands-on work

Leading Change
You know what they say, “the best laid plans…” Even with outstanding facilitation skills and an ironclad plan, your team will certainly get derailed from time to time. Come to this informative workshop to:

  • Understand how to leverage the cycle of change, and the three core components of transformation to make change easier for your team
  • Apply a 6-stage process of change leadership to your organizational change efforts, making any change easier for all to adopt and reducing churn in your organization
