What is the First Line Leadership course?
The First Line Leadership course will assist first-line supervisors in developing a better understanding of roles, accountabilities, and skills in supervision. First line and middle management supervisors will learn how to empower their officers to solve problems and be accountable for their actions. Supervisors will learn to become coaches and mentors, and this course will lay the foundation for basic changes in supervisory skills.

There are two assessments to complete for the First Line Leadership training course:
Competing Values Management Practices Survey Answer questions from a 'work' perspective placing yourself in your formal or informal leadership role.
Leadership Toolkit Emotional Intelligence (EI) Questionnaire Calculate your emotional intelligence in five domains: self-awareness, empathy, managing emotions, motivating oneself, and social skills.
