Online Supervisor Coaching Lab: Master Your Supervision

Live and Online

JULY 19, 2018
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Mastering your supervision helps create strong employee engagement, high staff morale and great functioning teams. Presenters Lisa Negstad and Debbie Okerlund are teaming up with MCN to offer monthly one-hour virtual supervisor coaching lab sessions to help you master your supervisor skills. Each session is on the third Thursday of the month (with the exception of November) from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Each session will center on a specific supervision topic and will include a mix of teaching and content. These labs will also allow you to immediately apply skills or techniques to your work situation. They are geared towards people who are new to supervision as well as those who want ongoing content to renew their supervision practices. The labs are also relevant for those who supervise volunteers.
