Supervisory training is beneficial to anyone with a direct report, but training these supervisors can be a difficult task when they make up a smaller group of the employee base. Many companies wait to train them until they have a large enough group, which means that training new supervisors can take a back seat for months or even years. This is where our training makes a sensible addition to your supervisory training program. ej4's training gives supervisors access to content 24/7, on any device.
Supervisors can benefit from our training immediately as they transition into their new role, or as refresher training years later. With an increased amount of responsibility, supervisors have less time to dedicate to training and will benefit from our short-form courses that don't take up too much of their busy day. Our off-the-shelf content provides the perfect on-the-job supervision training solution that allows new supervisors to grow their skills as soon as they start their new role.

Stop Doing and Start Managing
It’s likely that you got promoted to manager because you were good at your job. Now, as a manager, you have to watch someone else do that job, and they might not be as good at it as you were. Or maybe they don’t do it the way you used to do. For these reasons, it’s easy to fall into the habit of jumping in and doing some of those things yourself, even though someone else has been hired to do them. But you need to stop doing that, because as a manager, it’s your job to manage. In the long run, doing instead of managing hurts your team and individual team members, it hurts productivity, and keeps you from doing the job you’re actually supposed to be doing. In this course, we’ll talk about how to stop doing, and start managing.
What it Takes to Manage
Managing is not as easy as some people make it look, but it’s also not as difficult as some others make it look. Regardless, being a good manager is hard work! As a manager, you're responsible for employee engagement, communication, meetings, and more...are you prepared? Here, we look at things to consider as you consider moving into management.
Managing Difficult People
Have you ever worked with that person who technically doesn’t do anything wrong but is just… awful? It might be someone with a difficult attitude, someone who whines, someone who’s manipulative, someone who lies, someone who’s lazy, someone who spreads gossip, or maybe you just can’t put your finger on what’s “off” about them. How do you manage someone like this? What should you do if their behavior borders on inappropriate? In this program, we’ll discuss how to address these issues.
How do you achieve your goals? Not the short-term daily tasks, but long-term goals and dreams? Some find that they don’t actually ever achieve them, or they fall way short. If you’re the type who works day after day, and year after year, but don’t feel like you’re really getting anywhere, this course is for you. SMART is an acronym that you can reference as your guide for goal setting. Setting SMART goals will help you to focus your efforts, keep you accountable, and help you attain whatever goal it is you hope to reach.
