The Learning Spotlight
It’s Time to Talk about Your Supervisors…
By John Grubbs
The deep end of the pool is where most aspiring supervisors are thrown. Allowed to sink or swim with only survival and past experience as a preserver of life in the new role. It is tragic yet repeated over and over in organization after organization. The epidemic of bad supervision in the workplace is now being magnified by a young generation of nomadic workers that simply migrate from one job opportunity to the next without regard for the
tired, old stigma of job hopping. In fact, these new workers typically place the most recent work experience on an application because a complete job history at twenty five years old would just take too much time, paper, and effort.

My Time To Lead Series
Making the transition to leader is not easy and it is certainly not natural. Yet
most companies invest little to nothing preparing new leaders for their new
role. This often results in poor morale and higher turnover since many
people just replicate what they have seen in the past. This leadership "gap"
is prevalent in most companies. Our new and updated leadership series
prepares leaders for this new role. Our 3-day leadership series
(non-consecutive days) includes an 86 page work book and a copy of
“Listen Up Leader”.
We cover leadership essentials such as:
• Making the leap from co-worker to supervisor
• Learn the difference between communication and effective communication
• Differentiate between accountability and blame
• Set goals to communicate accountability as a supervisor
• Recognize the essential nature of trust
• Create an environment that promotes trust in the workplace
