The Most Common Mistakes Your Supervisors Make—And How You Can Get Them To Stop

You know you’ve got them—the supervisor who’s great with people but has never once turned in a performance review on time. The supervisor who posts impressive numbers but seems to drive people from her department in droves. The supervisor who innocently suggests to pregnant employees that perhaps they should take some time off to put their feet up. Even the best supervisors get it wrong sometimes, and some are chronic offenders. The good news is that many of the common mistakes supervisors make are preventable; you just need to know how to go about it. Join us for this session and learn:

  • The common mistakes that even good supervisors make over and over—and why they’re so legally risky for your organization
  • How to achieve lasting behavioral change without destroying morale or inviting backlash
  • What to do with an otherwise good manager who is stubbornly impervious to criticism
  • How to distinguish between bad behaviors and bad managers, and why the difference is crucial
  • When you should invite feedback on a supervisor’s performance from his or her subordinates, and when this is counterproductive
  • The most effective steps you can take immediately to reduce your risk of supervisor-triggered litigation
