Becoming a More Effective Supervisor

Improving Employee Engagement through Effective Supervision and Leadership

Almost 50% of employees are disengaged in many of today’s businesses. That increases the risk of productivity losses, safety issues, quality slippage and especially job satisfaction. These risks result in real costs for business leaders. Studies indicate that the most important influence on daily engagement is that of a front line supervisor. This session will help you to recognize the importance of being a more positive model as a supervisor or leader in order to have more engaged and productive team members.

This workshop is offered within organizations for groups of 5 people or more.
