Understand the importance of adapting your supervisory approach and communication style in support of staff success.
About this Event

Workshop Description

Participants must have taken Effective Supervision Part 1 as a prerequisite for this training.

Successful supervisors start with curiosity and awareness of their own supervisory and communication style, as well as their particular cultural lens. By expanding their view and skillfully shifting these default approaches, they can more fully develop staff and maximize performance.

Learning Objectives

This highly participatory and reflective training takes a deeper look at concepts discussed in TSNE’s Effective Supervision workshop. Participants will:

  • Review the four supervisory styles and reflect on ways that adaptive practice has improved and challenged supervisory relationships
  • Consider approaches to decision making as they relate to staff readiness
  • Deepen their practice of relationship-building communication skills
  • Consider a model of staff performance management and engage in adaptive feedback and communication to address performance issues at all levels

Come prepared to actively participate!

Target Audience

Supervisors who have participated in TSNE’s Effective Supervision Part 1 and wish to deepen their adaptive practice.

She considers employees an organization’s greatest asset and believes that people choose to work in nonprofits not simply to make a living but to make a difference. As a practitioner, Lyn understands that the human resources function served to protect organizations by ensuring compliance with a host of employment regulations but also to support employees’ effectiveness. She believes that a well-functioning organization walks their talk by treating staff in ways that promote equity and are consistent with their mission and vision.

Lyn has over 30 years of experience in the nonprofit sector working in a range of settings from large, international organizations to small, member-driven, local groups. Most recently she served as the director of administration and human resources for over fifteen years. In 2005, Lyn also launched the human resources training and consulting practice at TSNE. In that capacity, she partnered with hundreds of local and national nonprofits to build human resources systems reflective of each organization’s vision and values, train and support supervisors and other leaders, and provide employee relations coaching and consultation.

Lyn is a seasoned trainer, coach and consultant serving dozens of clients each year. She has a B.A. from Oberlin College and a master’s in organization and management from Antioch University of New England. Lyn is also a Certified Professional Coach. She is proud to have served on numerous boards, including with The City School, a Boston-based nonprofit working with young people across lines of race, class, gender, and neighborhood who are emerging leaders and have a passion for social justice. She also sits on the board of Onward!, a new organization using innovative solutions that harness the power of technology to bring about systems-level change and build power in our most marginalized communities.
