Understanding and Applying Work Styles as a Supervisor (Part 2)
Course # 596
Working with people has always been a supervisor’s key responsibility. Recent trends indicate this job has grown harder, as supervisors are encouraged to increase productivity through influence rather than authority. How can this course help? By gaining a greater understanding of yourself and those you work with through the People-Styles Behavioral Inventory. Within the framework of your style, learn practical strategies for relating effectively with others, thereby increasing engagement and productivity of your workgroup.
- To provide a framework for enhancing understanding of one's own working style and how it influences both an individual's success and stress.
- To understand the value and method of using a behavioral model in one’s role as supervisor to enhance delegation, feedback, change management, and recognition efforts.
- To learn how to apply style-flexing methods to influence others and support optimal working relationships.
