Building Better Bosses: How to Spot and Retrain Supervisors and Managers with Leadership and Mentoring Skills that Really Work - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn clear guidelines on how to identify and retrain bad bosses through mentoring, communication, team building, and much more.


Training and mentoring are top priorities for HR—helping employees achieve their full potential benefits the individual employee as well as the company. So when you detect a supervisor who is not living up to their potential, or worse, what can you do?

Bad bosses can have a detrimental effect on the whole organization, affecting the people under them, production, morale, and the workplace culture in general. Knowing how to spot a bad boss requires being on the lookout for certain telltale signs, and systematically gathering data on how well managers are performing in their roles as leaders and mentors. The webinar will discuss the telltale signs as well as ways to gather information on an ongoing basis to determine when managerial skills may need to be upgraded. Waiting for employees to leave is far too late to intervene. Or if they are leaving already, quick action is needed to prevent additional loss of valuable talent. Managers with insufficient skills also frequently have employees who are not delivering what is needed to other departments or to customers. 

How can HR retrain these supervisors? Learn how to use mentoring and leadership approaches to retrain and inspire bad bosses. Use this on-demand webinar to get valuable tips and guidelines on what steps to take and make these supervisors into the leaders that you want for your organization’s success. 

After attending this webinar, you will be able to: 

  • Identify managers who are having a detrimental effect on your organization because of their bad habits or lack of leadership
  • Identify signs to watch out for and monitor
  • Assess areas in which your supervisors are falling short
  • Collect and use actual data to back up your assessments of poor leadership
  • Design training and mentoring programs to inspire change and leadership in your supervisors
  • Communicate leadership and development programs as a benefit, something your supervisors may want to volunteer for rather than being forced into
  • Develop communication tools, and keep communication and dialog ongoing
  • Involve employees in understanding what they need from a boss, and what is detrimental
  • And much more!
