A 6-hour training with James Figueiredo, MEd.

March 8, 2023



There is another training that is a deeper dive of this topic on March 9, 2023. Please sign up for that event as well if you’d like to receive the full range of information.

Successful Supervision recognizes that Supervisors play a pivotal role in establishing a quality workforce, yet all too often have not been equipped with the resources necessary to ensure their team members function most effectively in their roles. Drawing from the professional literature and the supervisor experience, this two-day workshop employs a culturally responsive and systems-thinking approach to challenges confronting CHW Supervisors. It aims to build the capacity of supervisors to provide more responsive and informed supervision for the people on their team. Workshop participants will learn about available resources and apply practical tools designed to improve supervisory practices. This training will focus on using a system thinking approach, the essential roles and activities of supervisors, establishing role clarity of our supervisees, job interviewing, recruitment, onboarding, and responding effectively to common supervisory challenges. To enhance the participants’ experience and maximize retention of newly acquired knowledge and skills, this course employs a variety of methods to accommodate a range of learning styles. In each section multiple methods are used to deepen learning.


  • Build understanding of how adopting a systems thinking approach improves supervisory effectiveness.
  • Identify the 5 essential core roles of supervisors.
  • Learn best practices related to conducting a more effective job interviewing process.
  • Practice responding to supervisory challenges.
