Course Information

Course Title: Supervisory Development Seminar II: Learning to Lead

Course Description: This seminar is designed for new frontline supervisors and existing supervisors who have not yet participated in formal leadership development. It is also recommended for frontline supervisors who need a refresher course to understand and refine their approach to leadership. Congress has mandated training for all new supervisors and this course fulfills those requirements, as well. It may be completed as a stand-alone seminar week or as a two-week experience when combined with Supervisory Development Seminar I: Fundamentals. When taken together, the weeks do not have to run consecutively. If getting away for a full week is difficult, Supervisory Development Seminar II: Learning to Lead can be taken in a five-week online format. The online course requires 6-8 hours of work each week. The content is the same as the one-week in-residence course.
