According to a study of 300 HR Managers by Development Dimensions International (DDI), HR.com and the Institute for Human Resources, weak leadership can be costly for your organization (www.forbes.com). Key points in the study:

  • 69% say it caused lower rates of engagement;
  • 56% say “the lack of interpersonal skills as the number one reason for leadership failure;”
  • 65% say it caused loss of productivity; and
  • 59% say it resulted in higher turnover “of themselves or team members.”

When you have weak leaders on your front lines your business or organization can suffer. The possibility of higher failure rates and lack of motivation among employees builds with insufficient leadership skills. With our Front-line Supervisor Lunch and Learn Series gain key leadership insights with experienced supervisors who know how to face the difficult challenges of a front-line supervisor.

Resolving Conflict on the Frontlines
Recent studies reveal that employees exhaust almost three hours each week dealing with workplace conflict. At an annual cost of $359 billion in paid hours, organizations can’t afford these losses. But with the proper training, people can learn how to handle conflict maturely and collaboratively – and maybe prevent it altogether. Resolving Conflict introduces Frontline Supervisors to the different types of conflict, shows leaders how to communicate clearly and tactfully, explores appropriate resolution strategies, and establishes a common-sense approach for preventing unnecessary conflict.

Toughest Supervisor Challenges
When dealing with issues such as employee performance, personality clashes, and conflict, the truth is that there are no quick fixes. Successful supervisors know it takes time to do what’s best for the long-term success of the organization, its employees, and even themselves. They also know that they can overcome just about any challenge by exercising the “three keys”: realism, restraint, and resolve. The Toughest Supervisor Challenges gives both new and experienced managers the supervisory skills, tools, and techniques they need to evaluate the situation at hand and choose the appropriate response.

Navigating Difficult Conversations
Difficult conversations are inevitable in any workplace. Those conversations can create unhappiness, stress, and tension. They can also impair and even destroy relationships. When handled poorly, they are likely to result in serious problems that interfere with productivity and leave everyone involved feeling frustrated and dissatisfied. As a Frontline Supervisor, you can’t avoid these kinds of conversations, but you can learn how to handle them more effectively. Developing the ability to handle these challenges will pay off in terms of reduced stress, increased confidence, improved relationships, increased trust, fewer problems, better teamwork, higher productivity, and better career opportunities.
