Supervision is, in essence, about behavior change, helping employees integrate new skills and do things differently. This workshop will help supervisors leverage skills in Motivational Interviewing to guide employees to make changes to improve performance and service quality. 

Following this training the participants will be able to:

  • Participants will develop a rationale for using MI strategies and skills in supervision.
  • Participants will practice MI skills in the context of providing individual supervision.
  • Participants will practice MI skills in the context of leading group and team meetings.
