Managing People

 

A Flexible Online Program

 

Managing People is back, and in a new online format that allows you to engage with this intensive management course over a one-month period from any location, instead of over the course of three days, in person, as previously presented.


Each traditional in-person day will take about a 5-8 work days to complete in this new online format, in which you’ll have a chance to read, watch videos recorded by our instructor, engage in discussion groups with your peers, and receive constructive and timely feedback from your instructor. Using Canva, an online portal hosted by Penn State, you can access each module that includes all the readings, videos, and other tools that you need to complete the course all in one place. Choose how much time you dedicate each day, finish a section in one day, or spread it over time to accommodate your schedule. There are timelines for finishing each Section, however how you dedicate your time within that section is totally up to you. 

 

Section 1: Introduction to Leadership: Supervisors are responsible for the quality of other people’s work. In order to do their job effectively, organizations must provide supervisors with the tools to influence their direct reports. This session focuses on the manner in which the interpersonal conduct of the supervisor allows him/her to develop leadership qualities that will have a salutary influence on those for whom he/she is accountable. Topics include the role of the manager as a supervisor, the development of leadership, managing critical moments, employee involvement, communications and more. Below you will find a timeline for section 1 that includes an estimated amount of time you will need to dedicate to complete each module.

 

Timeline for Section 1:

Day 1, September 28: Introduction (30 Minutes)

Day 2, September 29: Module 1: What is Leadership? (60 Minutes)

Day 3, September 30: Module 2: Communications Model (75 minutes)

Day 4, October 1: Module 3: Critical Moments (60 minutes)

Day 5, October 2: Module 4: Managing Critical Moments (75 minutes)

Day 6-8, October 5: Module 5: Final Assessment (60 minutes)

 

Section 2: Introduction to Supervision: One of the most important roles of any supervisor is to help employees perform tasks in effective ways. This session focuses on the ways supervisors can help staff develop their abilities and understanding of appropriate roles as independent variables resulting in better performance. Topics include the role of the supervisor, delegation and accountability, negotiating expectations, positive reinforcement and mechanisms to help improve performance.

 

Section 3: Counseling & Discipline: All supervisors will eventually conduct a counseling session to discuss apparent performance problems. This course will treat a counseling session as a method to avoid discipline as well as a coaching activity consistent with the need to help staff find ways to overcome the challenges they face at work. Topics include the role of the supervisor, an introduction to conducting counseling sessions, writing counseling memos, an overview of discipline as well as a look at disciplinary action case studies.
