Are You Ready to be a Supervisor?

Leadership development should begin well before an individual transitions into a supervisory position. The USGS Supervisory Development Program provides training for those who are interested in becoming a supervisor.

This 4-part webinar series, Are You Ready To Be A Supervisor?, will answer some of the questions employees have prior to becoming a supervisor and provide a glimpse into what is involved with supervision. It is designed to offer information to USGS employees who are considering a supervisory career. The objective is to familiarize them with the "reality" of supervision before they apply for a supervisory job.

Tuition: No charge
