Frontline Supervisor Training 

Monday & Tuesday // December 7 & 8, 2020
9:00 am - 12:00 pm each day // Virtual
Speaker Bio

You’ve just received a big promotion, a new set of keys, access to approve timesheets, and an eager team to supervise, educate, support, and lead. Problem is, nobody’s shown you how. 

As a frontline supervisor you are a pivotal link in the service delivery chain and the key to your organization’s effectiveness. (No pressure.)

You are now completely responsible for the performance of your team, regulatory compliance, translating instructions from upper management, and staff development, all while performing a multitude of administrative tasks and helping to ensure the health and welfare of those we serve. Chances are, you could use a few new tools in your management toolbox. 

In these two half-days of hands-on training with Sara Sherman, supervisors will: 

  • Learn the 10 Fundamentals of Supervision
  • Discover the secret to finding and addressing the root cause of performance issues
  • Identify their own supervisory strengths and vulnerabilities 
  • Understand two of the most challenging employee personality types, and learn how to stop them in their tracks
  • Leave with a written Supervisory Success Outline

Attendees should be available for both half-days of this two-day training.

Creating a Values-Based Culture

Wednesday // December 16 
9:00 am - 12:00 pm // Virtual
Speaker Bio

Agency culture not only affects strategy, it says more about who we are as a leader than anything else. It attracts the kind of employees and outcomes we want and provides a caring and loving space for the individuals entrusted to us. This is an excellent time to revisit and spend time on defining core values as our funding sources focus more on quality of life than quantity of services, AKA values-based care.

This seminar by Joe Landis uses the [email protected] framework to show how clarifying an agency’s core values facilitates natural growth. The goal of [email protected] is to engage everyone’s best and create a generative agency beginning with the individuals in our care, to the board, and to community stakeholders. This seminar focuses on the key roles the CEO, agency leadership, and supervisors play in setting the culture. When all these hearts are working in concert, the culture inspires all the people to do their best, or as Lance Secretan says, ”Great leaders inspire…an approach that emanates from a loving, serving heart.” Hey if Subaru’s cars are built with love…what’s holding us back?

This seminar for CEOs, agency leaders, and supervisors will focus on the 5 core values which have emerged as central over the last 40 years; Companionship, Holistic Care, Gifts, Partnerships, and Membership.
