Basic Supervision for State Supervisors

Part 1 (5-day course) and Part 2 (5-day course)

Making the transition to first-time supervisor can be challenging. A new skill set is needed to adapt to new roles and responsibilities. This program, Part 1 & 2, meets the requirements of Government Code Section 19995.4(b) for new supervisor training.

In an interactive group format, newly appointed supervisors learn about their changing roles and responsibilities, effective leadership skills and leadership competencies, how to share their organization’s vision and mission, core communication and coaching skills, and the nuts and bolts of managing employee performance. Students will also take away tangible tools that can be used on the job immediately and be given the opportunity within class exercises to network and strategize with other new supervisors.

Additionally, students will be given a Learning Application Guide which provides opportunities to directly apply course work back on the job through questions, activities and food for thought to maximize benefits of the training experience through the State competency framework.
