Supervising with Confidence
by Stephanie McBrier Hannett and the HRDQ Development Team
The role of the supervisor has changed dramatically through the evolution of the organization. Today's frontline leaders need practical, skill-specific training to meet growing on-the-job demands – and Supervising with Confidence delivers. Participants get the opportunity to examine strengths and development needs as well as practice strategies within five skill areas. By gaining experience in guiding the work, organizing the work, developing staff, managing performance, and managing relations, supervisors are ready to put their enhanced skills into action.
Dr. Stephanie McBrier Hannett is well-versed in human development needs and what it takes to meet them. Her research, in addition to her work with both children and adults, has provided in-depth insight on behavior that inspires her work. She focused her doctoral studies on the analysis of the underlying feelings and thoughts of individuals who participate in experiential learning activities. The results identified psychological safety, positive experiences, learning, and interest as core themes. Her findings led her to develop training utilizing many different experiential techniques, emphasizing a fun and relaxed atmosphere with ample learning opportunities. Dr. McBrier Hannett holds degrees from the University of South Florida, including a Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis in training and development, an MA in guidance and counseling, and a BS in elementary education.
