About the course

A key to successful supervision resides in the ability of the supervisor to be able to lead, guide, grow, develop and support team members and the organization as a whole.

This course focuses on the need of supervisors to possess, and use effectively, the wisdom that comes from self-awareness and the awareness of the needs of others. Participants will examine their personality preferences and learn about the preferences of others so that they may adapt and connect to an ever changing, challenging organizational landscape that is today's diverse workplace.

Through the administration and use of Insights Discovery®, a Jungian based personality assessment tool, the course will enable and empower participants to positively and productively engage in the effective application of supervisory techniques and to discuss, share, and apply the course concepts to real world and relevant situations.
