Supervision Essentials

A leadership competency series for new and upcoming frontline supervisors.

Research suggests that today's workforce is more spread out, more independent, and more diverse than ever. The success of a supervisor, seasoned manager or senior leader depends on: effectively engaging diverse team members; staying connected with employees regardless of locale; creating accountability; and displaying emotional intelligence in the process.
