Supervision Learning Community

In our survey of providers, we heard excitement about continuing the supervision training, coaching, and learning community with author and expert trainer, Rita Sever. 

Three Keys to Supervision Half-Day Training: The number one reason people leave their jobs is because of their supervisor. This interactive workshop will teach three key practices that will enhance your supervision skills, lower turnover, and produce more effective results. The three keys are deceptively simple but produce extraordinary results. Designed for program managers, supervisors, and others who are responsible for supervising staff. November 8, 12:30-4:30pm.

Organizational Coaching and Learning Community: The application period is now closed. Selected fellows will receive organizational coaching, recommendations to strengthen supervision and peer learning opportunities with other grantees. Organizations receive an assessment and recommendations of their HR and supervision practices, individual coaching hours with Rita Sever, and three peer learning circles to practice supervision skills.
