Person-Centered Supervision

Many of us know and understand the importance of being person-centered with the people we support. However, being person-centered should not begin and end with the lives of those we assist. This new module for leadership staff will help your organization to become a truly person-centered company. 

Watch this trailer to learn more:

Person-centered supervision puts your team members at the center of the conversation. This approach builds a foundation of shared trust, respect, and perspective-taking and supports an environment of performance achievement and well-being.

When team members know that you and the organization care about them and their development, they will want to remain a part of that organization. This module provides leaders with an opportunity to get to know your team members as people, not just employees.
