This item includes access to view the ninth installment of the Your Bridge to Supervision series: Planning and Organizing on September 2nd, 2021, as well as the content for the module Supervision: Planning and Organizing.
Supervisors frequently offer two reasons for not planning as much as they should. The first is lack of time, and the other is the supervisor’s tendency to take immediate action when something goes wrong or when the unexpected happens. In crises, most supervisors feel more comfortable doing something about it before thinking and planning how to deal with it.
Unfortunately, this often leads to further crises, as supervisors find themselves fixing one dilemma while hurrying on to the next. Caught in this stressful cycle, they quickly use up one of their most precious resources: time.
This module aims to show how to become better organized, more efficient, and stop wasting valuable time. Learn how to develop better plans to achieve goals and be more successful. By learning to plan and manage work successfully, supervisors will have fewer crises, lower stress levels, and more productive employees.
The Leading Edge Learning® modules are created specifically for today’s learners who demand interaction and engagement with online learning opportunities. Sequential presentation of largely static content in page-after-page delivery is not the best delivery experience for adult learners.
