Supervisor Development

Do you struggle to motivate your employees?

Are your relationships with them strained or even non-existent?

Are employees not meeting expectations?

Supervisors have the unique challenge of leading for the long haul and managing in the short-term. You engage, teach, and motivate your employees. Your ability to handle immediate issues and concerns goes a long way towards creating loyalty and trust. 

As a result, you must be equipped to handle low morale, skill deficiency, and turnover. Additionally, supervisory responsibilities frequently carry additional customer-facing tasks, upward reporting to middle and senior management, and the potential struggles with your morale and lack of training.  

You play a critical role

How will we get you there?

At Rising Sun, we understand the critical role supervisors play and the impact you have on the organization’s health.

You are called to resolve conflict, maintain stated levels of productivity, and ensure that teams perform with excellence and precision. We created the 10 Keys of Effective Supervision™ Course as a tool to help you meet your unique responsibilities with success and without sacrificing your learning and development.

10 Keys Course

We used these ideals as the foundation for creating our 10 Keys Course.

The 10 Keys™ Course is comprised of (11) 2-2.5-hour classes. The course begins with an introduction to the concept of servant leadership. This style of leadership represents the foundation for not only the course, but Rising Sun’s philosophy as well.

“How people deal with conflict shows you the kind of people they are.”


The course then outlines ten separate steps, or keys, specifically designed to aid you in your capacity and ability to lead your teams. You don’t need to follow these steps in order. Instead, the 10 Keys™ represent ten strategies you can practice and master to drive the organization’s overall success.
