Understanding Yourself as a Supervisor - Webinar (01/25/2023)


As a supervisor, it comes as no surprise to you that no two people are alike. Sometimes one person can even behave differently from day to day! The differences people exhibit can add interest and creativity to your workplace. But if you don’t understand what’s behind the differences, those “interesting” behaviors can also be a bit frustrating, especially when they aren’t behaving as YOU would behave!

In this fast-paced one-hour session, we’ll look at common characteristics – the good, the bad, and the ugly! – of the four primary behavioral styles. We’ll examine strengths and weaknesses so that you can recognize both aspects of your own behavior and apply that knowledge to your daily interactions with your staff.

This is a chance to learn more about yourself – which is especially helpful when you’re supervising others!
