Empowered Supervision for Organizational Performance in Higher Education

In order to be an effective supervisor it is critically important to understand all the dynamics involved. This session will engage participants in discussions surrounding the difference between staff supervision and staff development, the basic needs of people in groups and how to meet them, and the stages of group development and how they interplay with how the organization changes. Working in a unionized environment is another dynamic that must be considered, and will be a focus of the workshop. We will review a staff coaching model, effective ways to give feedback, and motivation techniques. Participants will develop a 21 day action plan to implement with their teams to increase their overall effectiveness.
