Leadership Skills for the First Time Supervisor
Lead Instructor:  Sam Davis
Time: 8 AM - 5 PM 
Date: March 28 - 29, 2022
This seminar is designed for new supervisors who are seeking tools to help them succeed in the correctional environment. Many times, new supervisors are not prepared to move from peer status to supervisor within 24 hours. Instructors share their lessons learned and what they wished they had known for this difficult transition. This interactive seminar provides the opportunity to learn from both attendees and instructors. Exercises demonstrate real-life applications to what is learned during the seminar. Get ready to fill your tool kit with information to help you succeed!
Objectives include:
  • Clarify the scope and nature of a supervisory position.
  • Learn some ways to manage the challenges of the role.
  • Recognize the responsibilities supervisors have in their new position, to themselves, their team, and their organization.
  • Learn key techniques to help new supervisors plan and prioritize effectively.
  • Acquire a basic understanding of leadership, team building, communication, and motivation, and what part they play in effective supervision.
  • Develop strategies for motivating a team, giving feedback, and resolving conflict.
