I Want To...

Become a Better Supervisor/ Manager

Supervising people is hard. You work to excel at your job and move up but that usually means supervising others. Once you’re there, you rarely get training on how to effectively manage your direct reports. It’s not something that comes naturally to most people. You already have too much on your plate just trying to get all the work done, much less to have to deal with conflicting personalities and staff members who aren’t carrying their weight. Who has the time to balance the work, personnel issues, and professional development for a whole team?

The Strengths seminars are a fun way to highlight how each person can play a role in the team while encouraging new professionals to explore their own personal strengths and leverage them to their advantage. In addition to learning about themselves and their teammates, the administration also gains insight into their respective strengths and weaknesses. We are given the unique opportunity to offer support that plays to their strengths as early as possible and set them up for optimal success. The Strengths workshop highlights what we’re already good at and how to continue doing things well. It also gives us insight into where our weaknesses are and how we might collaborate better to form a well-rounded team to accomplish a goal.
