Nuts and Bolts to Leadership and Supervision:

For Small Nonprofit and For-Profit Organizations

Focus On Foundational, Nuts-and-Bolts, Best Practices

Few people struggle because they haven't mastered the most recent and advanced concepts about leadership and supervision. Instead, people tend to struggle because they really haven't mastered all of those most basic and fundamental "best practices" in leading and supervising. This training session focuses on those foundational, best practices.

Focused on Actions, Implementation and Continuous Learning

We strongly believe that adults learn best when they 1) actually apply new information and materials from our trainings to current, real-world challenges in their lives and workplaces; and 2) exchange ongoing feedback with others in similar situations. Therefore, if suitable with the client, we design our trainings so that they incorporate use of individualized action plans, peer coaching groups and/or private, on-line discussion groups that we moderate among attendees to our trainings.
