Leadership is a skill that is instilled in us from a very early age in the school system, but not everyone will have the need to go beyond the most rudimentary skills taught to leaders. However, those who find themselves in a new supervisor position need to revisit the essential topics These new supervisor training topics are a combination of conflict resolution, efficiency, and teamwork skills that are so essential for the building of a solid team in the workforce.

One of the first things that you will need to learn as a new supervisor is a set of evaluation skills that will help you keep track of the performance of every member of your team. New supervisor training topics generally include evaluation review, how to recognize and point out poor performances, and how to boost ability, motivation, and confidence on your team so that their overall performance improves. It's vital to make sure that no individual is slipping through the cracks. Rewarding achievements in a positive way and treating poor performance as a means for growth are all topics that may be covered.

The various facets of conflict resolution comprise another major component of new supervisor training topics. Not only is a supervisor responsible for acting as a mediator when there is conflict between two or more coworkers, but may find him or herself in the position of being the source of conflict. Listening, learning to uncover what people are really thinking, and helping make sure that people feel like their opinions are valued are all important pieces of this. A harmonious workplace tends to be the most productive, so this is a very important piece of the puzzle.

Other new supervisor training topics could include how to difficult situations, such as how to manage an employee who reports for work under the influence. Team building exercises may also be covered; and effective communication with upper management. Supervisors must realize that they are going to be the middle ground between entry level employees and upper management, and as such it's important to learn the effective communication tools that will let them convey the messages of both groups of people. A fully functioning company is based on great communication from the top to the bottom, and it is the supervisor's role to facilitate this.
