Exceptional Supervisor Certificate

Exceptional Supervisor Certificate Program

Join us for our next Exceptional Supervisor certificate series beginning on June 21, 2017. This series contains ten diverse management coaching workshops offered on-site at Florida Institute of Technology, which can be taken over a three-month period.

How does the program work?

To obtain your Exceptional Supervisor certificate, you must attend a minimum of five out of ten workshops within the three-month offering. We encourage participants to attend the first workshop, The 21st Century Supervisor*, where they can complete a needs assessment, although it is not required for program completion. (*Following workshop, you will work one-on-one with an instructor on your personalized needs assessment, which will determine the four remaining workshops that will benefit your career the most.)

What makes the program unique compared to other management seminars or training services?

In contrast to our competitors, we offer:

  1. Personalized coaching with the support of thought-leaders and industry experts
  2. An individualized 90-day shaping plan and program workbook
  3. B.Y.O.E (bring your own examples) instructional design—receive feedback specific to the context of your job
  4. Tools and tips needed for implementing behavior change techniques to improve employee performance and one’s own performance in the workplace
  5. Variable training—attend the workshops that best suit your individual needs, or attend all ten for program mastery
  6. Broad, sweeping content that can be applied to various modern work settings
  7. A completion certificate from an accredited university

Skills you will obtain during these concentrated workshops and tailored coaching sessions can and should apply directly to your daily responsibilities in your profession.
