Evolution of a Supervisor
Speaker: Ivy Chong, PhD, BCBA-D
What is your current situation? Being a supervisor & manager are challenging roles in today’s workplace. When faced with increasing expectations and responsibilities, it is critical that you can demonstrate effective management techniques. Leadership is a group of behaviors (i.e., response class) that are learned. This includes critical technical skills you learned in graduate school, as well as self-awareness, self-management, and perspective-taking. To grow, you will need to move out of your comfort zone, but also avoid panic and burnout. There are no shortcuts to effective supervision and management. This session will review concepts such as self-reflection perspective-taking, and tips to sustain success. In the second part of this session, participants will be able to describe key elements of supervision, providing ethical and objective evaluative feedback to supervisees.
- Participants will be able to describe the relationship between key values, perspective, and self-awareness.
- Participants will be able to identify common obstacles to changing for the better and strategies to overcome barriers.
- Participants will be able to describe the importance of a ‘growth mindset’ in the quest for lifelong learning.
Note: 1 CEU will be offered after completion of survey
