Lead with AgilityCoaching for Non-Profit Leaders


2020 Online Supervisor Coaching Lab

Mastering your supervision helps create strong employee engagement, high staff morale, and great functioning teams. Debbie Okerlund and Lisa Negstad are teaming up with MCN to offer monthly one-hour virtual supervisor coaching lab sessions to help you master your supervisor skills. Each session is on the second Thursday of the month from 1 – 2 p.m. (with the exception of January which is on the fifth Thursday).

Each session will center on a specific supervision topic and will include a mix of teaching and interaction. These labs will allow you to immediately apply skills or techniques to your work situation. They are geared towards people who are new to supervision as well as those who want ongoing content to renew their supervision practices. The labs are also relevant for those who supervise volunteers.
