Interviewing Techniques for New Supervisors
Hiring great employees is critical to an organization's success and makes life easier for everyone. The key to hiring the right person starts with the application and interview process. You will learn how to create an interview plan, how to construct appropriate interview questions that provide the information you need, and how to avoid common interview mistakes. In addition, we will cover what is and isn't legal to ask a candidate and how to evaluate the information you have received in order to make the best decision.
Taking Care of Yourself
As supervisors and leaders we know we should care for ourselves but we often don't. We are focused on taking care of our organizations, our employees and meeting our goals. However, neglecting yourself can become a very real detriment to your team while healthy self-care can actually increase your effectiveness and that of your employees. Self-care is a hallmark of effective leaders. Learn how to recognize when you need to focus on yourself and what questions to ask to begin taking care of yourself.
