Orientation for New Supervisors
Learn how to transform your leadership skills to develop your employees.
Since June 2008 nearly 120 managers representing a variety of business units have attended the two-day Situational Leadership training workshop.
What is Situational Leadership? It is a model for developing individuals so they can reach their highest level of performance on a specific goal or task. It is a process that supervisors can use to help individuals ultimately become self-motivated and self-directed. In this model, the supervisor learns skills to assess an individual’s development level.
Please note that individual departments are to assume costs of the training materials, which will be approximately $300. Participants will need permission from their supervisors to attend.
For more details, please see this summary. Participants must commit to both days.
Upcoming Training Dates: To Be Announced. Please contact Carole DiFabio in Employee Development at ext. 28532.
People Development, Communication, and Continuous Learning
*The Situational Leadership Model was created by the Ken Blanchard Companies, a global company in leadership and organizational development programs. Boston College currently uses the Situational Frontline Leadership training and Situational Leadership II training.
Peer-to-peer sharing of ideas and resources from colleagues whose responsibilities include supervising student employees. If you have a document or a best practice you'd like to share, please contact Carole DiFabio.
Being Informed and Keeping Current
Whether you're new to Boston College, the role, or in need of a refresher, we are in the process of designing a module and skills track orientation to get you started and to keep you current. We will post modules as they become finalized.
The Well-Practiced Manager is a quarterly newsletter for Boston College managers and supervisors. Its concise format and focused topic make it a perfect resource for busy managers and supervisors; it’s information when you need it.
