People are usually promoted into supervisory or management positions because they are high achievers and have demonstrated some leadership qualities. Unfortunately, they often don’t receive the training they need to be successful in their new roles.

CMOE has worked with hundreds of new leaders, and many of them have mixed emotions about taking on the new role. While they may be excited about the opportunity, they also feel anxious and unprepared to handle the responsibilities and demands that come with managing others.

Helping new supervisors transition into and perform well in the role of leading others takes focused attention and thoughtful development. A lack of proper training, tools, or support often results in poor team morale, frustration, stress, and lower productivity. Left to fend for themselves, new leaders sometimes decide to return to a non-supervisory role. This is a true loss for the individual and the organization.

Creating High-Performing Supervisors

CMOE helps high performers transition successfully into new supervisory and leadership roles with our Supervisor Development modules. These training modules are packed with fundamental ideas, tips, and real work applications that will contribute to your organization’s bottom line right away.

The five modules in the program are designed with the overall success of the new supervisor in mind. We know that team leaders are pressed for time and busy tackling their day-to-day responsibilities. We have designed compact, 90-minute learning experiences that include hands-on application so supervisors can learn quickly and apply their new skills immediately on the job.

Each topic in the Supervisor Development series was selected based on decades of experience helping new supervisors overcome their most pressing and immediate challenges. In the program, participants evaluate their personal communication style and learn a framework for interacting with and recognizing the contributions of others. They will also learn to handle pressure more effectively and successfully manage conflict in difficult situations.

High performers often struggle with delegation because they must learn how to communicate assignments and hold others accountable. In this program, participants discover their own strengths and weaknesses in this area and create actionable plans that will allow them to delegate assignments appropriately and develop others’ talents and capabilities in the process.

The program also focuses on helping supervisors build trust with others and motivate a team of diverse individuals. This creates an environment where all team members feel comfortable sharing their ideas and helps them reach their full potential.

Participants leave the focused learning experiences provided in the Supervisor Development program prepared to meet the demands of their new role. They also feel confident and excited about being a supervisor and leading others—and our consultants at CMOE will work with you to make sure your supervisors retain and apply what they learn in the program over the long term.

CMOE Supervisor Development modules can be customized to meet the unique needs of your organization. We also offer a Virtual Certification program, which certifies people within your organization to teach the modules.
