BLM-TC-1430-53/FWS/NPS-SUPSKILLS - BLM/FWS/NPS Supervisory Skills Workshop

Course TitleBLM/FWS/NPS Supervisory Skills Workshop
DescriptionThe Supervisory Skills Workshop is worth 36 hours of training if you have taken the 8 pre-requisite online courses. (24 hours for attending the in class workshop and 12 hours for completing the on line courses).

This 3-day instructor led course provides new supervisors within the Department of the Interior multiple opportunities to apply knowledge gained from the pre-requisite distance learning courses. It uses a skills-based interactive approach based on principles of adult learning and includes practice, scenario analysis, small group discussions and other activities to fully engage participants. Topics include engaging employees in accomplishing work, motivation, conflict management, leveraging diversity, performance management, progressive discipline, coaching and counseling; and involve a cumulative assessment on the final day.

You must complete 8 on-line training courses prior to attending the training. This is extremely important and the success of your class learning team will be affected if you have not completed them. If you have already completed them, do not attempt a retake; you can, however, review the material.
