The supervisory relationship offers an extraordinary opportunity to influence the performance and job satisfaction of staff. Because supervisors are often expected to mediate the pressures associated with over-burdened staff, resource constraints, escalating client need, and a volatile policy climate, effective preparation for this role can make a world of difference. To be effective, supervisors must develop skills to manage complexity, think systematically and behave relationally.
Geared toward both new and experienced supervisors, this course focuses on developing, strengthening, and applying competencies essential for effective supervision.

*Each class this year will be held via Zoom. Participant numbers will be capped to ensure a personalized learning experience and there will be numerous opportunities for engagement (e.g. small group discussions, role plays, case studies). As such, learners should prepare for active participation. We ask that students keep their cameras on as much as they are able, while understanding that it may not be possible to keep cameras on throughout the entire class. Rest assured that we will take many breaks throughout each class to help assuage Zoom fatigue.
