Course Description: Administrative and Mid Level Supervision- Idaho Falls
Mission and Vision
The significance of middle management’s role of supporting the mission and vision of the department can’t be understated. It is critical that each employee be reminded what we get paid to do. When all else fails, personnel should be able to look at the mission and vision and make proper decisions. Additionally, we will be exploring ways to provide a positive work environment.
Walking the Talk
During this period we will be discussing issues of ethical behavior and how courage effects your level of ethics. Regardless of rank or position you must lead by example.
Work Performance Management
Most organizations task various supervisors with completing performance evaluations without providing training. During the time allotted, we will reveal the importance of this function to the mission and vision. Middle Managers must take the performance evaluation process seriously.
Holding Supervisors Accountable for Behavior
What if the person who needs disciplined is a supervisor? During this period we will be discussing ways to hold the supervisor accountable for their behavior. We will discuss a case study outlining how one commander of a department tried to identify causes of the “unmotivated supervisor.”
Anyone can be sued for just about anything, it is important that the organizations protect themselves with sound risk management practices. Taking an affirmative role in training and monitoring high risk critical tasks, is a crucial step in the right direction.
