Supervising people can be one of the toughest parts of your job…but it doesn’t have to be!

Have you ever found yourself thinking, “Why can’t I motivate him?” Or maybe you dread the idea of correcting employees – so you don’t. You’re not alone – these are common feelings among supervisors. But take heart! There are tips and techniques you can use to not only help your employees find motivation in their jobs, but also help guide them along their journey – using praise, coaching, and counseling when you can and reprimands when necessary.

 In the first webinar of this 3-part series, we’ll discuss Creating a Motivating Environment ~ what motivation is and what it isn’t. We’ll brainstorm together to create a list of at least 25 ways you can help create a motivating environment.   Download the Part 1 Handout.       

In Session 2, The Power of Praise, we’ll discover why praise is so important and how to use it effectively. Aha…an underused technique for creating that motivating environment! Download the Part 2 Handout

In Webinar number 3, Coaching for a Win-Win, Linda will teach us tips on effective coaching and counseling that will help reduce the need for reprimands – whew! What a relief!  You’ll know when to use which technique, why it’s important to consider the differences, and why supervisors tend to avoid these vital areas of effective management.

You’ll also be given tools that will help you deal with the dreaded case of the necessary reprimand – and you’ll leave the workshop feeling more confident in your ability to handle it well. It’s an area most of us would rather forget – but as supervisors, it’s not likely we’ll get off scot-free. Why not feel in control when handling these necessary parts of your job?
