Skill Development Program for Supervisors
Have you ever felt that you’ve been given the “GO!” before you’ve gotten to “Get Ready, Set?” The Front Line is a hands-on skill enrichment program designed to assist new Kent County leaders to hit the ground running in effectively supervising their staff.  Based on feedback from the supervisors in the trenches, The Front Line is specifically designed to assist recently hired or promoted front line supervisors in understanding the fundamental responsibilities of their new role, county policies and common challenges of staff supervision.  This program and various components can also serve as an excellent refresher for seasoned supervisors.
