This TSA training workshop is designed for:

  • Individuals who supervises employees on any level

This workshop has been designed not only for people who are new at the job of supervising, but also for experienced supervisors who would like to update and refresh their supervisory skills

Supervisors must possess more diversified skills than ever before. They are expected to function as both leaders and coaches to the employees they supervise, and to encourage teamwork and cooperation so that department goals are met and the customers are satisfied. Employees are often promoted through the ranks by merit and seniority, and many of them do not receive adequate training for the challenges of supervision. Because of this, and through no fault of their own, serious employee relation problems can occur, which leave well intentioned supervisors frustrated and unaware of their roles in the escalation of trouble in their departments.

Participants at this workshop will learn effective leadership styles, observation techniques, and communications skills, as well as how to motivate employees to care about their departments and want to be team players. Employee relation dilemmas will be worked through from the supervisor’s shoes with a clear understanding of the disgruntled employees’ perspective. TSA certificates will be presented to everyone who attends.
