Better Nonprofit Management Series

Supervisor Learning Cohort

January 2023 to March 2023
Group and 1-on-1 Sessions

Presented by: Joanne Horgan

Skilled, intentional, and strategic supervision creates a culture of mutual respect — one in which employees and supervisors communicate regularly and clearly about job-related expectations, tasks, and overall performance. This kind of supervision is also one of the keys to building equitable teams and an organizational culture that genuinely values different life experiences and perspectives, and where every employee can succeed. Successful supervisors, whether they are new to the role or have a wealth of experience, tap into self-awareness, are adaptive, and leverage a range of interpersonal skills. 

Strong supervision is integral to organizational success and employee satisfaction, yet many supervisors feel woefully under-prepared. Join us and a group of peers to create a collaborative learning community. Together, we will learn and experiment with concrete tools to grow your supervisory skills and practice. 

As a member of the Supervisor Learning Cohort, you will:

  • Participate in three two-hour interactive training sessions 
  • Meet three times as a cohort to:
  1. Reflect on real supervisory challenges and make concrete plans to address them  
  2. Explore your experiences putting new tools and behaviors in place
  3. Hold one another kindly accountable to taking action to address challenges
  • Receive two hours of one-on-one coaching from TSNE’s cohort facilitator
