Overview

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.

Why Supervisor Training?
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.

The DVIRC Difference
This workshop is a foundational component of professional development and introduces many of the key skills supervisors need to master, including key strategies for motivating others.

This program also helps supervisors learn when and how to give productive feedback, as well as how to deliver and modify training to accommodate different learning styles to generate optimal results.
