Fully Customisable Training Course Material: Description

“The art of choosing men is not nearly so difficult as the art of enabling those one has chosen to attain their full worth.”

Napoleon Bonaparte

Making the move to a supervisory role can be demanding and somewhat daunting. For most people, the required skills for supervising others do not come naturally which means they need to learn and apply this new skill systematically.

In addition, many of those people who find themselves in a position where they are responsible in tasking others, don’t realise they are now in a supervisory role. Without formal training, most people would simply copy their own managers and supervisors and if these managers are poor at interpersonal skills, the new supervisors will end up with a lot of bad habits that they could do without.

This course is designed to help delegates gain confidence in supervising others by knowing what areas they need to consider when leading people. Through various case studies, examples and scenarios, delegates learn what works and what does not when managing people. The course also explores several established frameworks of management which gives structure to any supervisory role. These include guidelines to motivate the team, carrying out performance analysis, avoiding and resolving team-supervisor conflicts, problem solving and a variety of intervention methods.

Research shows that such frameworks are essential because many people who are new to supervisory roles are simply unaware of alternative management methods that can be used in different situations and wrongly choose an ineffective style of leadership.

The course is suitable for a variety of supervisory situations. Front line managers, shop floor supervisors and office team leaders can all benefit from this course. The course is ideal for those who are new to the supervisory role or those who have been leading but now want to improve their management skills by going through a formal training and tap into established methodologies on supervision and interpersonal skills.

The Philosophy Behind Supervisory Skills Training Course

Supervisory skill is all about knowing how to interact with people, inspire them, lead them and support them. It requires strong interpersonal skills which can be gained by training as well as applying the methods to practical situations.

To make this training course effective, we have included many examples, case studies and conversations so that delegates can learn faster and remember the content for longer. Several exercises are designed to follow the content on management theories so that delegates can put the methods into practice. This also helps delegates learn from each other’s experiences both as supervisors (if they have been) and also as people who have been managed by others.

Supervisor Training

At Skills Converged, we know the importance of making a training course memorable using participation and interactive exercises. This course is explicitly designed with these exercises in mind while also allowing trainers to customise the course at appropriate stages in order to provide their own specific examples and scenarios suitable to the background of their delegates. Instructions are provided in the trainer’s guidelines on how to do this.
