Effectively Supervising and Motivating Your Team

Event information
Venue:FIU @ I-75 1930 SW 145th Ave, Room 427, Miramar, FL 33027


Is your team not motivated enough? Is your leadership style currently not leading to an increase in performance? Maybe you are just tired of “winging it” when it comes to supervising your team? Or maybe you just want to develop and expand your knowledge when it comes to effective leadership.

Your ability to lead and motivate people is critical to your success as a manager. Your organization and your team count on you to provide leadership—to navigate through change, make tough decisions, while focusing on vital tasks. Leadership is not about being authoritarian or hard on people. It is about having high expectations and helping people meet them. It is about making tough decisions and having the courage to take risks. It is about seeking opportunities for change, building enthusiasm for change efforts, and being an agent of change.

Find out what employees really look for in a leader, what engages them, and what motivates them. This one-day training aims to teach you the essential habits of highly effective supervisors, increase your ability to make quick decisions without compromising relationships, and expand your creativity to motivate your employees efficiently to increase performance and productivity. By the end of this session you should feel more creative, inspired, and enlighten to supervise and motivate your team.
