Supervising with Confidence: Setting Clear Expectations and Establishing Mutual Accountability

Would you like to spend less time addressing personnel issues and more time focusing on your work in the world? Learning how to create a foundation of clear expectations and mutual accountability is one of the most powerful and least frequently utilized practices that will set you and your staff up for success. We also explore the impact of reducing assumptions and uncertainty, and share how simple, pragmatic tools like workplans and regular standardized check-ins empower both you and your staff. If you’ve been a supervisor for decades or less than a year, this webinar helps you and your team operate with greater clarity, trust, and accountability.
