Course Description

Throughout this course, you will learn eight skills and shifts in thinking that are essential for being an effective supervisor.

Being an effective supervisor requires different skills, behaviours and thinking to being an effective team member. A team will typically expect a new supervisor to demonstrate the skills, behaviours and thinking they associate with a leader. It can be challenging for a new supervisor to meet these expectations without some development and support, because the basic skills, behaviours and thinking are rarely acquired through life prior to taking on a leadership role.

Based on experience helping thousands of new supervisors successfully make the transition from being a team member to being an effective leader, this course condenses the absolute essentials into eight short modules.

Each module explains some of the core concepts and breaks them down into practical actions that can be immediately applied on the job.
