Supervisor Training Series Feedback

“I have enjoyed this series tremendously. This training provides actionable items that all managers are required to know and use. The plus to all of the training is meeting the support staff of HR. They each have areas they support and it is so helpful to have them shed light on what issues they deal with and how to approach solutions.”

~ Laura McGinnis, Clemson Computing and Information and Technology (CCIT)

“The supervisor training series has been a valuable resource for me as I transition into a supervisory role. When a new training session date approaches I am always excited knowing that I will be gaining valuable knowledge in a new area. The facilitators and presenters are knowledgeable and do a great job keeping the sessions interesting and informative.”

~ Cyndi Ragusa, College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences Business Office

“The Supervisor Training series is a thoughtful collection of topics that provides a broader understanding of the principles of management. Not only is the training beneficial for learning, the networking opportunity and role-playing scenarios are both excellent ways to connect with peers across campus to learn new techniques for resolving age old challenges! 

~ Jacquelyn Ansley, Clemson Computing and Information Technology (CCIT)
