This four day program is designed for new supervisors in State government, specifically those working for the Department of Health and Human Services. In part, the program will focus on the role of the supervisor in an organization and how it differs from the task based role of the employee. While it is technical skill that usually gets a person promoted, the survival skill of a supervisor is the ability to lead others. The program will also cover policies and procedures that are unique to supervisors within State Government.
The agenda for the first day of the program includes information on: 1) Employee interviewing and selection; and 2) Competency Based Interviewing.
The second day’s agenda will include: Americans with Disabilities Act: Harassment: Wellness and Safety ; Family Medical Leave Act; Workers’ Compensation; Time and Attendance; and Alcohol, Drugs and the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
The third day’s agenda will include: Writing measurable performance expectations and using the State’s Performance Appraisal System; Situational Leadership; and connecting the employee to the mission.
The Fourth day’s agenda will include: Coaching for Improved Job Performance; Employee Discipline and Contract Administration; and developing a Leadership Credo.
New supervisors will be notified directly as to dates and locations of the program upon SETU's notification of your promotion/hire. You will receive links to a series of on-line trainings which are required to be completed before you will receive credit for attending.
