Practical Leadership 1.0: Cultivating Thriving Supervisory Relationships

Tuesday, November 29, 2022
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM (EST)


Event Details

This series is offered in partnership with the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN).

This is a six-hour virtual training spread over three two-hour sessions, Nov 29, 30 + Dec 1 from 11am to 1pm Eastern each day.

Effectively carrying out a supervisor role is more "art" than science. Often, managers are left on their own to try and figure out how to implement their supervisor duties. Yet skilled supervisors are the primary extrinsic factor that creates strong employee engagement and performance. This highly interactive virtual training provides participants with immediately implementable tools and strategies.
This workshop is one of MCN’s most popular trainings and consistently receives high evaluations. MANP is pleased to offer this to our Maine nonprofits through our partnership. Participants will receive with tools and ideas that they can immediately implement.

Topics Include:

  • Cultivating self-awareness and emotional intelligence
  • Understand privilege and power in your supervisor role
  • Holding difficult conversations
  • Six essential skills of supervision
  • Coach approach to supervision

Learning Objectives

  • Better understand the competencies of the supervisor role and have improved confidence in implementing the role
