D6 Supervising Social Workers

“Employees don’t leave companies, they leave managers.” (Gallup, 2017) Research shows that relationships in the workplace, particularly with supervisors, are critical for job satisfaction and impact performance, growth, and retention.

This workshop will look at the specifics of supervising different types of employees in our workplaces varying from residential staff to case managers and therapists to program supervisors. Together we will learn principles and practical strategies for effective supervision to empower and energize your team.
