Experienced Supervisor's Institute


The Experienced Supervisor's Institute is the critical link between Fundamentals for Supervisors (FFS) and the Commonwealth Management Institute (CMI). ESI will help you build the necessary competencies that will move you beyond the role of a managing supervisor to becoming an influential leader. This workshop focuses on advanced supervision tools/tips and an introspective look at what it takes for you and your team to succeed in good and challenging climates.

Participants can earn 1.8 CEUs for this institute.
