Course List

  • Frontline supervisors are a main determinant of overall performance, retention and morale in an organization. Several recent studies have shown that a leading cause of employee dissatisfaction and turnover is not due to compensation (as typically thought), but by the relationship between the employee and their direct supervisor.
  • As a supervisor, it is important that you sufficiently prepare and work collaboratively with your employee to make the Performance Planning portion of Performance Excellence successful. In this program you can expect to learn strategies to link university and departmental priorities to the employee’s role, clarify expectations, write effective SMART goals, identify skill gaps, create a development plan and increase engagement in the process. 

  • This session is designed to provide you with support and information to help you get off to a good start in your important role as a leader at MSU.
