The series explores all facets of being a supervisor, from its basic definition to learning how to accommodate differences in the way people work using Myers-Briggs instruments.

Participants in the Supervisor Series have to make an eight-month commitment to the program. Requirements include reading the books Type Talk at Work and Project Management, attending eight workshops, and completing a project to benefit their work area.

Registration for next year’s Supervisor Series begins in August. The class is limited to 25 people. For more information, visit the Human Resources web site or contact Carol Henderson at x32621.
