A star is born: Downsizing, rightsizing, and reorganizations have recently thrust many successful employees into the new role of supervisor. Unfortunately, it takes more than being a great employee to become a great supervisor.

Most new managers have never been trained on how to supervise others, and many have had poor role models over the years. While some employees simply aren't cut out to be managers, many more need just a firm heading in the right direction in order to succeed.

Join us on September 2—and bring your new supervisors along—for an in-depth webinar all about making the transition from employee to supervisor. Our speakers, two experienced HR consultants, will explain how new supervisors can enhance their skills and become highly effective, respected managers.

Your new supervisors will learn:

  • How to transition from team member to team leader.
  • The legal issues involved in being a supervisor, including the key compliance hotspots of discrimination, harassment, and compensation
  • How to think strategically, set goals, and measure the success of their your teams
  • Key skills required of leaders at work—and how to cultivate them
  • How to build and maintain key employee relationships
  • The best way to get results without alienating your subordinates
  • The single most critical role in "boss-dom"—and why it matters so much
  • Common mistakes made by supervisors, and how to avoid them
