Most people that get promoted are great at what they do; that is why they got promoted! So why do these great employees end up micro-managing, mix up interpretations with observations, and cause serious breakdowns in communications: all the while working at 125% capacity? The reason is most supervisors today are not trained for their roles as leaders/supervisors. In this course we will better prepare you for this transition, students learn easy-to-understand leadership terms with a systems analysis approach designed to build a solid foundation for outstanding leadership. Lessons learned for new supervisors and seasoned supervisors as well. Students dive into "managing self," transitioning from someone doing the work to becoming someone responsible for the work. Students will also unpackage what self-vulnerability is and will learn where the true power of influence lives.
