Supervisory I – Handling Problem People Successfully

Monroe-Union County Economic Development, in partnership with HPO Associates, has arranged for a Supervisory Training Seminar Series for Union County industries.

Presented in a series of 6 half-day modules, the seminar series begins with a broad view of the Supervisor's role and responsibilities, then shifts towards learning the importance of trust and listening to others. Strategies for identifying and managing people are offered, along with conflict resolution and how to get more from teams. These 6 sessions will improve the Supervisor's ability to manage behaviors of others in a more productive direction. This seminar series is designed for Supervisors who are new in their roles or for those who have never received formal training managing others. 

Being a strong leader and an ideal employee is more important than taking care of problem people.  That’s why the time spent in this workshop is well worth the valuable information participants receive.  They will learn how to respond to difficult people, prevent future problem behavior, and more.
