Real­ize your own lead­er­ship poten­tial, grow in your career, and earn a Uni­ver­si­ty of Alber­ta credential

Are you new to the super­vi­so­ry role? Do you aspire to become a leader and move up to the next lev­el in your career? Per­haps you already are a front-line man­ag­er or super­vi­sor in your orga­ni­za­tion, but want to build on your knowl­edge and skills.

The Super­vi­so­ry Devel­op­ment Cita­tion from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Alberta’s Fac­ul­ty of Exten­sion pro­vides new, prac­tic­ing, and aspir­ing super­vi­sors with the essen­tial the­o­ry and skills they need to be effec­tive lead­ers with­in their organizations.

Learn how to main­tain a pro­duc­tive rela­tion­ship with your team, as you devel­op skills to excel in areas such as inter­per­son­al lead­er­ship, deliv­er­ing pre­sen­ta­tions, del­e­gat­ing, team man­age­ment, coach­ing & men­tor­ing. Real­ize your own lead­er­ship poten­tial, grow in your career, and earn a Uni­ver­si­ty of Alber­ta credential.

This pro­gram will ben­e­fit pro­fes­sion­als in super­vi­so­ry roles who wish to upgrade or strength­en their skills and knowl­edge, as well as emerg­ing and aspir­ing lead­ers ready to invest in their career prospects. Stu­dents come from all sec­tors: gov­ern­ment, indus­try, not-for-prof­it orga­ni­za­tions, and small to large enterprises.

                                                                   

Acquire new tools and techniques used to identify needs, develop action plans, delegate work, and monitor success within their organizations.
