The results of this assessment will be used by your instructors to create a personalized plan for improvement that includes two hours of targeted one-on-one coaching.

Another 360-degree survey will be conducted post-program to demonstrate your supervisory skills growth through participation in the program. Our unique program will improve your effectiveness in completing day-to-day job tasks, sharpen your communication skills and provide new strategies to solve operational and staff-related problems.

Strengths-Based Management

All too often, organizations focus on weaknesses–on remediation of faults and failures–rather than on strengths and talents. Weaknesses must be identified and overcome, but they cannot be the focus for growth. Strengths-based management focuses on discovering each direct report’s strengths, incorporating them into their daily activities, and working around their weaknesses.  This allows each direct report to become fully engaged in their work, achieve personal goals and add to the accomplishments of both the team and organization at levels far beyond current expectations. This course provides supervisors with tools, skills and strategies for helping direct reports identify strengths; creating opportunities to utilize strengths; hiring individuals with the particular strengths needed to meet organizational goals; designing work teams; and developing strengths through coaching and formal performance appraisal.
