Course Overview

This training will prepare you for your role as a new supervisor in the public health field. We'll start with tips to get you started in your first weeks on the job, then present ways to develop your supervisory skills over time. You will learn ways to build trust with your team and gain ideas for what to discuss during one-on-one meetings with staff. This training also presents a six part tool that can be used to help employees think about their performance or for your own performance. As your supervisory experience grows, this training will help you consider ways to be more influential in your role. We explain the "Four I's" of transformational leadership originally described by Bernard A. Bass in 1985, which have been used as a guide for countless supervisors to help employees go above and beyond instead of merely completing tasks.
