Supervision in Government Series @ City of Palm Beach Gardens
Mar 8 all-day

***4 Day Course:  March 8, 15, 22 and 29, 2018***

For over 15 years, Supervision in Government has been offered throughout Broward County to new supervisors or supervisors new to government. This unique program specifically addresses similar agency issues, workforce changes, and varying performance standards within government.  Participants learn how to develop and coach staff while working within specific guidelines, policies, and collective bargaining agreements common to many public organizations. They will have an opportunity to network with other governmental supervisors and share practical ideas for managing employee performance.

This series is designed to provide four full days of training with two sessions offered each day. The interactive classroom training will involve hands-on application and job aids will be used to reinforce the skills back on the job. Thirty-minute job application assignments will transfer the learning back to each participant’s agency. The series includes the following eight 3.5 hour modules:

MARCH 8:   Module 1 - Transitioning from Employee to Supervisor
Module 2 - Interviewing and Hiring Within Legal Boundaries

MARCH 15:  Module 3 - Legal Side of Supervision
Module 4 - Communicating in the New Role

MARCH 22: Module 5 - Performance Management for Results
Module 6 - Coaching through Feedback

MARCH 29: Module 7 - Progressive Discipline
Module 8 - Delegating With Empowerment
