Supervisory Training August 23, 2016

May 16, 2016

With the power and authority granted to the supervisor, one assumes great responsibility. Unfortunately, most supervisors haven’t had the benefit of practice and training on how to best lead and manage people. This workshop is geared towards people who are new to supervision and those who seek to renew their leadership style with a model that promotes effective communication, feedback, and goal-setting.

The Greater New Orleans Foundation Organizational Effectiveness initiative is excited to partner with CompassPoint Nonprofit Services for a full-day supervisory training on on Tuesday, August 23, 2016, 9:00 am-4:00 pm at the Greater New Orleans Foundation. Workshop topics will include:

  • Basic responsibilities of a supervisor
  • Establishing work plans and goal-setting
  • Giving constructive and supportive feedback
  • Professional development planning

In addition, participants will learn how to design and lead effective supervision meetings and how to provide positive and corrective feedback.

This learning opportunity is designed for teams of up to four participants from your organization. Participants must currently supervise staff or will be supervising staff in the near future. We strongly recommend that the Executive Director participates as that will help to support organizational-wide application of learning (if the ED cannot attend another senior management person like Deputy Director, COO or VP of HR should participate).

Fees for the workshop are based on the number of participants: $175 for a team of two and $250 for teams of three or four participants. Lunch will be provided and attendees will receive a workbook with samples and templates. Registration will be accepted on a first-come first-serve basis. Payment is required at the time of registration. Registration is final and refunds will not be issued.
