The WBA Supervisor Boot Camp will start on Tuesday, October 18, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. and adjourn on Wednesday, October 19, 2022 by 4:00 p.m. 

An Intense Focus on Succeeding at Managing Others

You don’t master the art of supervision through luck, you master it with training, experience, self-learning, and staying on top of best practices. As a supervisor, you must have the attitude, aptitude, skill set, confidence, persistence, and commitment to excel in this multi-tasking, challenging role. Supervisor Boot Camp will help you build essential traits such as leadership, professional maturity, and emotional IQ.

With this in mind, InterAction Training has designed a compelling, two-day dynamic, interactive workshop just for you! The program includes exploring the coaching and leadership skills that lay out a plan for your success as a highly effective supervisor. You will find this experiential training opportunity invigorating, motivating and applicable to managing and supervising others.

Fast-Paced * Information Packed * Results Oriented * Dynamic * Interactive * Engaging

This two-day program is exactly what you are looking for if your bank strives to keep supervisors on the competitive edge! You will work and learn, share and listen, and go back eager to implement and make a difference.
