Supervisory Skills

Two day course 

Many supervisors and team leaders are often promoted from within. This can lead to a variety of challenges, such as: learning to supervise their “friends”, delegating tasks to others, not being sure what their role fully entails & what leadership qualities they have to utilise in order to lead the team effectively.

This practical and interactive 2 day course will allow supervisors to gain confidence and key supervisory skills that can be easily implemented back into their own workplace.

By the end of this course delegates will be able to:
