Supervisor Development Series

The Supervisor Development Series is a program designed to develop the essential skills to be a successful supervisor. Using an inside-out approach, the series begins with MBTI: Introduction to Type where you will focus on your own personality and preferences by taking the Myers Briggs Type Indicator assessment.

After this process of self-awareness, individuals can begin to better understand others and their personalities and preferences. This inside-out approach is used throughout the series to develop important supervisory skills, including:

  • Communication
  • Conflict management
  • Team building
  • Change management
  • Inclusiveness

This series is offered as a rolling curriculum with courses taking place approximately every two to three weeks. MBTI: Introduction to Type is a prerequisite for three other courses in the series. At the MBTI: Introduction to Type course, you will receive a binder to house all materials for the series. You may take the non-prerequisite courses in the series prior to MBTI: Introduction to Type, but it is recommended you take this class as early as possible in the series to receive the binder to begin building your toolkit.

Please note: In order to receive credit for these workshops, participants are expected to be present for the entire duration. These courses are not eligible for Job Enrichment Credit.

Upon completion of the entire series, individuals can request a certificate of completion by contacting:
