Supervision in the New Workplace: What to do Differently Now that So Much has Changed
As a result of the continuing COVID pandemic, many traditional workplace practices have changed or are being questioned. One of the most important areas of change is the role of supervision in an era of remote work, especially in the mental health and human service fields, including shifting responsibilities at home, and new needs of clients.
This workshop will provide new guiding principles for supervisors and managers, directed toward mentoring the growth and longevity of team members. In addition, tools and strategies will be shared to assist participants in increasing staff and supervisory success. Participants will also learn compelling ways to measure their success to demonstrate the value of their positions.
- Participants will learn strategies to engage and retain team members in a post-pandemic world.
- Participants will understand how the pandemic has changed employee values around work/life balance, the supervisor relationship, and remote work.
- Participants will acquire skills to demonstrate their key role and value to organizational functioning.
