The supervisory relationship offers an extraordinary opportunity to influence the performance and job satisfaction of staff. Because supervisors are often expected to mediate the pressures associated with over-burdened staff, resource constraints, escalating client need, and a volatile policy climate, effective preparation for this role can make a world of difference. To be effective, supervisors must develop skills to manage complexity, think systematically and behave relationally.

Geared toward both new and experienced supervisors, this course focuses on developing, strengthening, and applying competencies essential for effective supervision.


After completing this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Identify, differentiate, and implement supervisory skills related to administrative and supportive supervision 
  • Identify modalities to increase awareness and staff centered practices
  • Engage in skills of supervisory practice including reflective listening, holding to focus, and maintaining race and trauma informed boundaries with supervisees
  • Distinguish skills necessary for informed supervisory practice, addressing performance and decision making issues, and boundary issues
  • Evaluate their own supervisory experiences and stiles in order to perform their developing supervisory styles
