Share Article

Management Concepts, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of practical, effective training for the federal government, today announced the launch of the Professional Government Supervisor Program (PGSP).

The PGSP is a unique approach to federal supervisory development. It allows agencies to configure a customized, experiential and powerful 4- or 5-day training program by selecting from 18 half-day classroom modules, and 14 on-line modules. This blended-learning choice allows agencies to focus efforts on their most pressing supervisory needs.

The PGSP aligns with the OPM Competencies, and include topics such as performance management, communication, conflict management, motivation, employee development, coaching, feedback, time management, delegation, interpersonal skills, and much more.

With Congressional and public pressure for accountability and results, record numbers of supervisors retiring, and research reports highlighting the implications of poor federal supervisory practices, the role of the federal supervisor is in the spotlight. Management Concepts developed the fully-customizable PGSP to address the current mandates for training, as well as agencies’ specific goals. Supervisors at any level, from aspiring to highly experienced, benefit from the PGSP.

In addition to the classroom and on-line modules, the PGSP includes up-front assessments and post-program support, including webinars, individual or group coaching, mentoring, and an online Supervisor’s Toolkit.

The Supervisor’s Toolkit is available anytime and anywhere a supervisor has a web browser. It includes valuable, expert-provided insights about supervision via recorded presentations, podcasts, blogs, articles, white papers, discussion forums, job aids, check lists, tools, links, FAQs and an “Ask-the-Expert” feature.

“Training for supervisors is consistently shown as having the greatest return on investment, especially given the tremendous influence first-time supervisors have on the culture and performance of an organization. It is critical to invest in skills development when we need organizations to be most productive. It is imperative supervisors receive the proper supervisory training. As a result Management Concepts is bringing this offering to address the current federal supervisory training mandates while also meeting clients’ needs,” said Tom Dungan, CEO of Management Concepts.

The PGSP is also available for individual enrollment.
