  • Roles and responsibilities of correctional supervisors, and the related supervisory, leadership and personal competencies
  • Assessment of personal values and vision and impact on your role as a supervisor
  • Characteristics of ethical and principled behavior and practical work applications
  • Practice strategies and critical thinking skills to identify and resolve basic problems of conflict  resolution, dealing with difficult people, interpersonal communication dynamics, performance  assessment and coaching, counseling and discipline and conducting performance appraisals.
