New Supervisor Training

By  Elaine Biech

new supervisor training

Prepare and establish new front-line leaders with training that develops essential supervisory skills. 

Investing in new supervisors increases productivity and organizational profitability, and it results in engaged, high-performing teams. Yet many new supervisors—the very people responsible for planning and organizing work in every organization—are often undertrained in the skills required to be a successful front-line leader.

In New Supervisor Training, training legend Elaine Biech presents innovative two-day, one-day, and half-day training workshops that help supervisors embrace their new roles and develop supervisory skills in five key areas: promoting communication, guiding the work, leading the workforce, coaching employee performance, and developing themselves.
