Supervisors are often thrust into the world of management with little to no experience or training on how to do that. 

Leading a team of people with varying skills and motivations presents a myriad of challenges and issues.

 Whether you are a new, aspiring, or seasoned manager, you know that managing people is one of the toughest – and most rewarding rolesthat you will ever have.  With the added challenges that pivoting from remote to hybrid or an in-person workplace brings, and the job becomes even tougher.

Course Instructor: Betty Lochner, M.Ed, SPHR

My passion for teaching you these skills comes from my 30+ years in a career that focused primarily on manager and staff development. I loved watching new, aspiring, and even seasoned managers transform into great bosses and mentors to their staff. 

As a professional coach and trainer, I have worked with employees of private corporate organizations, small businesses, and government agencies.

I focus on teaching individuals, like you, how to gain the skills and confidence they need to transform your workplace culture and be the best boss and team leader you can be.

Becoming a good (or even great) boss doesn't come naturally. It's a compilation of learned skills, continuing education and professional development, self-awareness, and courage. 

Investing in Yourself Always Pays Off!

I have filled this course with all the information and skill-building you need to navigate the role of supervisor in a virtual, hybrid, and in-person workplace.  I can't wait to work with you!

I started the course Be a Better Boss at the very beginning of the pandemic. Betty added and changed the content to reflect the current landscape. I used the information and resources as soon as I consumed them! This is a unique course, unlike any I have taken, and it is helping me reshape my thinking about what it means to be a good remote boss.

Betty has helped me become a much better manager. She has helped me set up an employee evaluation process,  and has taught me how to hold meaningful employee conversations which have transformed our workplace. She has helped me transition to being a hybrid remote boss which continues to impove skills as a small business workplace.
