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.
Supervisor Training Course Overview
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.

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.
