Supervisory 101 (Ideal for new managers/supervisors): 30-45 minutes
A supervisor needs to manage, lead, and encourage employees to perform at a high level and as a team. Being strong technically does not always make for the best leader. Understanding the basics of management is a crucial building block for new supervisors.

Workplace Communication: 30-45 Minute Training/Team Discussion
Why is communication important? Effective communication is vital to gain trust, align efforts in the pursuit of goals, and inspire positive change. When communication is lacking, important information can be misinterpreted, causing relationships to suffer and, ultimately, creating barriers that hinder progress. Every communication involves (at least) one sender, a message and a recipient. This might sound simple, but communication is actually a complex subject. Focus on workplace communication, with tactics applied to any communications in and out of the workplace. This training focuses on the 7 core communication principles.

Workplace Mental Health:
Navigating Mental Health in the Workplace (targeted at managers and supervisors): 90 - 120 Minutes (2 hour version with with interactive participant section)

As Supervisors and HR pros, we straddle the line between care and compliance. This training will provide additional context and information on the current mental health landscape and how that is intersecting with the workplace. Often we have tried to fill the gap and provide counseling and advice for employees, but that's just a stop-gap for the type of mental health support they need to get well and stay well. AND Constantly trying to fill that gap is a drain on HR staff, creating yet another layer of people who need support. It can become a vicious cycle of trying to help, but failing to solve the problems long term. Furthermore, most managers and supervisors are not licensed counselors and could be exposing themselves or their organizations to potential liability. This training provides clarity, tactics and tools to be better prepared to lead through these issues in the workplace.
