Effective Supervisory Management - what will I learn?

Key learning points

* Create a clear picture of your business objectives – use the right criteria when setting priorities and key performance indicators with your boss and with your team members

* Effectively handle interview situations – avoid failure by fully preparing for recruitment, correction, counselling or appraisal interviews

* Set up and organise your team – achieve your objectives and select and induct new team members for maximum performance

* Use your authority flexibly – through case studies which will help you to clearly identify the most appropriate mix of authority styles for each of your team members in different circumstances

* Keep your team motivated – objective analysis will determine how motivated each team member is; agree motivational targets, rewards and incentives and minimise ‘demotivators’

* Use TACK’s STEM Analysis – identify the root causes of communications issues and become an ‘active listener’ to compensate for other people’s weak communication

* Conduct powerful team briefings – inspire your team, develop strategies and tactics for dealing with difficult people or delivering news on difficult topics

* Correct ‘below standard’ performance – understand the differences between informal correction and formal disciplinary procedures and when to use each approach. Develop a range of approaches for criticising constructively but assertively through role-plays

* Delegate and empower – overcome your fear of losing control; develop techniques for monitoring the progress of delegated tasks

* Action plan for improved performance – you’ll leave the programme with an Action Folder containing a Purple Page for each key topic, helping you to achieve maximum performance improvement when you return to work
