Leading from the middle is often the most difficult thing to do and most supervisors and line managers know that all too well.

​​Having to deal with production pressure from management above and all kinds of pressure from the workforce below, it's no wonder that supervisors - often lacking even the most basic leadership and management skills training - are often overworked and overwhelmed while often accused for the performance bottleneck in many companies.​​​

WHY MOST NEW SUPERVISORS UNDER-PERFORM

Surveys have shown that while 60% of new supervisors and frontline managers under-perform or even fail in their jobs, 47% of companies don’t offer any new supervisor training. A report published in the Harvard Business Review found that, on average, supervisors and line managers only receive training TEN years after having started in their new roles.​​​
The ramifications are often severe and lasting. Research by the Ken Blanchard Companies shows what we often see in practice - that poor leadership habits developed in a manager’s formative first years will hold them back for the rest of their careers. By failing to invest in the development of their supervisors and new managers, companies are creating a culture of poor leadership which - if they survive - will continue to sabotage their performance for decades to come.​​
In addition, only about 34% of new supervisors and frontline managers receive any mentoring and a mere 31% receive any coaching.​​​

EQUIPPING SUPERVISORS FOR 21st CENTURY LEADERSHIP

DOWNLOAD OUR ​COMPANY PROFILE
​AND TRAINING CATALOGUE:
​​Our trial-blazing Supervisor Development Programme (SDP) is targeted to the needs of existing and developing leaders at operational level. ​​​​
​​It consists of assessments, 15 workshop-modules (from which you only select those that suit your team's development needs), individual assignments and individual coaching. Each module in the programme focuses on a leadership competency skill set known to be critical for success at this level. 
As such, this programme equips supervisors and frontline managers to make the 3 CRITICAL TRANSITIONS required when taking the step up from team member to team leader:
  1. managing self versus managing others; 
  1. moving from peer to manager; and
  2. developing 'soft skills' to lead people in addition to the 'hard skills' required to do their jobs.​

"He who influences the thought of his times, influences all the times that follow.
​He has made his impress on eternity
."
- Hypatia (370-415 AD)
​In structure the programme thus integrates some academic input with experiential learning and practical discovery. Feedback from participants (see testimonies) has been overwhelmingly positive, with most participants testifying to having seen real and positive change in their workplaces as a result of implementing what they have learnt.

A NEURO-BASED APPROACH TO LEADERSHIP

What makes our SDP unique is that all modules incorporate the principles and practices of neuro-based leadership and neurosafety in an innovative, exciting and mind-expanding manner. This potentially game-changing and science-based approach enable leaders to lead and manage in brain-engaging ways that optimises performance, job satisfaction, productivity and engagement.
​​This is not a 'soft' approach to leading or managing. Instead, it gives leaders the knowledge, skills and confidence to bring out the best in people by triggering neural responses in the brains of those they lead that links to higher engagement and performance. By applying the principles of neuro-based leadership, leaders empower their people to perform at their best.​ ​ 
​While this may seem a little 'up there' to some, the content is packages and presented in a way that is clearly understandable and practically applicable even to participants with no knowledge of or background in neuroscience. 

HOW THE PROGRAMME WORKS

SELECT MODULES: Our SDP consist of 15 modules (click HERE or on the button for a complete list of modules and their descriptions) from which you select only those you need (minimum of 3) to address your team’s current development needs. Once you’ve made your selection and decided on the sequence in which you want the workshops presented, we will quote you on the costing and if the quote is accepted, we will jointly set the dates and time schedule (typically one workshop per group per month).  
FOLLOW-ON COACHING:  Studies have shown that while classroom training increased performance with an average of more than 20%, adding a one-to-one coaching intervention after the training can push performance up with as much 88%. We therefore strongly recommend that a one-on-one coaching intervention (read more about our coaching options here) be included in your programme. Coaching will be customized to your supervisor team's goals and needs and will be performed by a certified coach. 
EXAMPLE OF 3-MODULE SDP:  
​​NOTE: Since launcing the programme in 2016, we've had some great successes  in helping some of the globe's most foreward-thinking companies equip their supervisors with the knowledge and skills to effectively lead and influence people in the 21st Century workplace.  See some of their testimonies HERE...
