Now you’re a Supervisor
You’ve been promoted; congratulations! You are excited about starting your new job, vowing to be the best supervisor you could possibly be. You are on the road to future success at your district and you’ve got great hopes for tomorrow. However, after a few weeks on the job, you end up thinking, “Why in the world did I ever say yes? Things were so much easier with my old job.” This training can help give you the critical skills you need to be a successful leader who effectively manages people, projects and deadlines.
Some managers are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them. However, many new managers need help communicating effectively with employees, providing feedback and grasping the reins of leadership. Great performance management also includes ongoing, two-way dialogue with employees about expectations, priorities and performance. This training focuses on teaching managers how to direct and develop their employees to ensure their success and maximize their contributions to the district.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires employers with 15 or more employees to provide qualified individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the full range of employment-related opportunities available to others. It also prohibits discrimination in recruitment, hiring, training, promotions, pay, social activities, and other privileges of employment. The ADA also restricts questions that can be asked about an individual’s disability and requires employers to make certain reasonable accommodations. This training covers these basic specifics and provides suggestions for avoiding ADA violations.
