Congratulations! You have recently become a supervisor. Transitioning into this new role will have its challenges, but this class offers strategies to help you make that change gracefully. You are now responsible for the productivity and results of your department though your former co-workers, either because of jealousy or out of habit, may not want to treat you as the boss. This class will remind you of what it means to be the manager; it’s about leading others to achieve results, not about being popular with your employees. You may not win over everyone in the department, especially if one or two of them also applied for the position you ultimately received. No matter what happens, keep the focus on the work to be done, give it your best effort every day, treat everyone fairly…and respect will follow. Students at the Manchester location will be participating via web-based video conference transmitted from the host location in Calmar.
