Supervision is the most consistent form of training most organizers receive, but only if their supervisors have a plan, follow it, and know how to challenge organizers to realize their potential.
The goal of good supervision is to build strong organizations, win concrete issues, and develop the next generation of the movement.
This workshop gives supervisors a chance to step back from meetings on the run in order to evaluate themselves as supervisors and develop a plan that meets the needs of their organization and the organizers they supervise.
This session is limited to 20 people whose main responsibility is the day-to-day supervision of organizers.
Sessions include:
· Understanding different organizational models and the need to be clear with your staff about exactly what they are building
· Using the Midwest Academy strategy chart as an ongoing method of setting organizers’ priorities and monitoring progress
· Motivating, mentoring and nurturing organizers who are at different stages in their careers
· Developing techniques for long distance supervision
· Learning nitty-gritty supervisory skills such as hiring/firing, discipline and evaluations
Leave with a concrete plan for staff development as well as your own plan for maintaining balance and sanity as a supervisor.
