Supervisor Training

Supervisor Development

We work to improve the potential of our University by retaining, developing and engaging our employees. While every employee is vital to our mission, we recognize that those who supervise people and outcomes have an added responsibility.

Supervisors have the greatest influence over an employee’s satisfaction, engagement and retention. And, they have opportunities every day to connect with employees in a meaningful way. From providing ongoing coaching and performance feedback to recognizing when an employee has made a positive difference, the feedback matters.

Leadership and Organization Development (LOD) is focused on making resources and training available to help supervisors/managers become stronger leaders.

Supervisor Training

Supervisor Training is offered to WVU and its affiliate campuses to provide the information supervisors need to manage in four areas: activities, people, resources and information. Whether your job title is supervisor, director or manager, or if you are in a position that requires you to direct the work of others, Supervisor Training can help you to achieve better and more efficient results. 

We offer classroom training as well as online training for a multitude of topics. Online training is available on demand so your learning can occur when it’s most convenient for you. E xplore what’s available in instructor led training, online training programs, and resources to help you supervise and lead with greater confidence and impact. Remember, your employees look to you for feedback, direction and leadership.
