William & Mary Supervisors

The William & Mary Supervisors Institute focuses on the first level of leadership: the frontline supervisor. Common traits of the most successful supervisors include effective communication, supporting the development of their team members, and creating a supportive work environment. The modules in this Institute will provide a framework and foundation of core knowledge and skills to be successful in planning and assigning work, coaching and mentoring, and motivating others.
