Senior Manager, Training & Organization Development

New and prospective supervisors face a long list of challenges and shifting expectations.

Over the course of just a few weeks, DVIRC’s Supervisor Training program helps these individuals transition from the rank-and-file to become effective in their new roles.

It is not uncommon for individuals promoted from technical or other shop-floor roles into supervisory positions to struggle with the transition. The shift from being a standout technical performer to a great supervisor requires specific changes; these individuals must learn how to stop doing the work that earned them the promotion and start doing the work of a supervisor. DVIRC’s Supervisor Training is an excellent way to ease the transition.

Who Should Take This Course

This program is ideal for individuals who have recently been promoted to supervisory roles, or are being considered for such positions. It is also an excellent refresher for anyone who has been supervising people using the “school of hard knocks” approach and might benefit from learning a more structured, contemporary supervisory style.

  • Understanding what to expect as a supervisor
  • Building confidence to become an effective front-line leader
  • Recognizing different leadership styles
  • Dealing with negative people
