Diversity Awareness (2019)
A survey by Korn/Ferry International found that more than 2 million people leave their jobs each year because of unfairness in the workplace. The hiring costs which result from high turnover are a huge stumbling block to company success, not to mention the time investment that goes into screening applicants and acclimating new hires to their role. Still, the greatest hindrance to progression lies within the heart of the issue—that is, to devalue and exclude employees because they are different is to also place limitations on their contributions and ability to grow. From fundamental attribution errors to microinequities (a term coined by researcher Mary Rowe), Diversity Awareness: Fostering an Environment of Inclusivity, Sensitivity, and Respect in the Workplace, explores the subtle ways that these limitations occur and how to combat them by fostering an environment that focuses on building respectful interactions.
Coaching for Development (2019)
To remain competitive, companies need to retain valuable employees, address problems that interfere with productivity and help employees achieve their full potential. A Society for Human Resources study revealed that 55 percent of organizations use or have used formal coaching programs to aid in their employees’ development. The ability to coach helps you increase your employees’ commitment and level of engagement, and helps you avoid and handle problems that interfere with working relationships and productivity. Coaching others can also make it easier for you to achieve your goals and make you more valuable to your organization.
Toughest Supervisor Challenges (2019)
Every job has challenges. Everyone has to master the skills necessary to succeed in a particular position. What sets you (supervisors) apart from other positions is that you manage people. So your toughest challenges will be employee related issues. Supervising others can be rewarding and give you a sense of accomplishment when you see employees grow and succeed. But supervising others can also be a big headache when employees don’t show up on time, don’t do what they’re supposed to do, fight with each other, etc. The focus in this module will be on taking the time to do the right thing in these situations for the long-term success of the organization, the employees, and you.

Ongoing Performance Development (2019)
Ongoing performance development involves establishing a systematic process that managers can use to support employees. This process focuses on creating clear expectations for individual performance based on the organization’s goals. Sebastian Bailey, a Forbes.com contributor, reported on research that found employees whose managers excel at people development perform twenty-five percent better than employees whose managers struggle with it.
The goal of this program is to help managers improve their people development skills by implementing a performance management system that helps every employee achieve their peak performance potential.
