This class is designed for supervisors and managers in manufacturing, transportation, construction, agriculture, and wholesale organizations, as well as other industries with a similar workforce.
A Gallup poll of more than a million employed U.S. workers concluded that the No. 1 reason people quit their jobs is a bad boss or immediate supervisor.
The good news is that supervisors can dramatically boost their effectiveness through the use of consistent models for everyday supervision activities.
And since repeated practice of a skill significantly improves retention and on the job application, Supervisory Skills (our most popular course) includes structured activities where participants actively practice the skills they gain during the class.
Through real-world case studies, group discussions, and break-out sessions, attendees will share this experience with supervisors and managers from similar work environments.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
NOTE: Supervisory Skills overlaps with the following standalone classes: Leadworker Effectiveness, Feedback for Success, Coaching for Success, Delegating and Setting Expectations, and Discipline and Documentation.

Technology Minimums for Attending Virtual Training
Archbright provides virtual training to our members so that they can attend courses from most anywhere, but each attendee must ensure that they are working from a location that has the necessary connectivity to the internet to facilitate participation.
Internet connectivity minimums
To ensure that you have a positive experience attending an Archbright University virtual course, you should verify that your internet connectivity provides a minimum of 5 Megabits per second (Mbps) in upload speed. Most internet packages for home-use are advertised by their download speed and not upload speed, and while this can be important for streaming movies or music, it isn’t the only consideration. For using WebEx, Skype for Business, or any VTC solution, the upload speed is just as important as the download speed.
How can I tell what I currently have?
If you are unsure what you currently have, please reach out to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and request the information directly.
If they are unable to give you that information, please visit www.speedtest.net while connected to the internet in the same manner you intend to attend the virtual training…and perform a speed test.
Wireless technology minimums
Additionally, if you connect wirelessly, as many of us do, make sure your wireless router can broadcast at the same speed as your upload speed, if not even higher.
Wireless routers can broadcast at over 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) these days, and many companies don't upgrade your router when you upgrade service. This often means that your wireless speeds are significantly lower than the upload speed that is available to you. This can cause significant issues with using WebEx over your wireless connection.
Remember that each device connected to the internet in your location is taking some of that download and upload capability and wireless connectivity. If you have many devices in your network, it is recommended to have significantly higher speeds to accommodate the increased traffic.
Please contact your internal IT team if you have any questions.
