Managing employees effectively is a challenging and rewarding process that starts with a clear understanding of how our behaviors influence workplace environments. If you want to improve your management skills, knowing yourself and the strengths you bring to work is a great place to start. Let our instructional team of Ned Lipman and Terry Tomsky help get you started!

In our highly popular two-day Management Skills for Supervisors short course, we will explore the essential characteristics of respected leaders and how they create and sustain productive organizations. Important questions to consider as a supervisor include:

  • Do your employees clearly understand what is expected of them?

  • Are they treated fairly and consistently?

  • Is there open and honest communication at your workplace?

  • Do they participate in decisions that affect their work?

  • Are there opportunities for them to improve their own skills?

Through small group discussions and entertaining interactive exercises, you will develop a better understanding of what you can do to improve your work group's effectiveness in the water, wastewater and related industries. In addition, you will acquire new "people" skills to more successfully manage the everyday challenges in your workplace.
