Supervising in State Government (SSG)

Registration is open!

This four day training is required for all designated supervisors, including managers who supervise. Supervising in State Government (SSG) is designed to be of interest to and appropriate for both new and experienced supervisors. First priority will be given to new supervisors and supervisors who are new to state government, and to supervisors who have not had specific SOV supervisory training in the past five years. These SOV trainings include DHR’s “Supervisor’s Development Program” (SDP), AOT’s “Fundamentals of Supervision”, and the AHS “Supervisory Training Program.”

Supervisors will learn how to identify personal strengths they can build on to expand their supervisory skills, and to help their employees work from their strengths as well. From there, the training will include:

  • Using the Performance Management System for Results
  • Laws, Policies and Labor Relations
  • Cultural Competence and Diversity in the Workplace
