Supervisory and Managerial Training System

The AccuVision Training Series (ATS) is a highly focused, modular skill development program that is typically delivered by members of an organization's staff or a trainer from a local college. The program's goal is to improve the core competencies of supervisors and managers in both team-oriented and traditional work environments. People using ATS typically begin by pre-assessing staff using LRI's Supervisory or Managerial assessment program.

The modules of the program develop the skills measured by AccuVision's supervisory and managerial assessment programs:

  • Team Building - The ability to motivate and encourage others to perform and participate
  • Situational Style of Interaction - Effectiveness in determining whether to use a participative or directive style, given the demands of a particular situation
  • Influence - The ability to actively facilitate and guide the actions and thinking of others and provide coaching for improved performance
  • Initiative - The willingness to take action, make decisions and defend points of view when
    interacting with others
  • Analysis and Problem-Solving - The ability to identify problems and generate sound courses of action for dealing with them.

Post-assessment following training enables organizations to determine the extent to which training has succeeded in developing staff's effectiveness.

ATS is used:
  • To train new supervisors and managers
  • To 'raise the bar' for experienced supervisors and managers
  • To provide readiness training for future supervisors and managers
Why ATS?
  • To increase productivity and performance
  • To create a continuous learning environment
  • To build supervisory and managerial 'bench-strength'
  • To support targeted skill development of current and future supervisors/managers
The ATS approach
  • The program is composed of five training modules, each focused on a critical management skill. A module, when delivered by a trainer, typically requires a day of training. A self-paced version of the program is also available
  • It uses a learn-by-doing approach to skill development
  • It demonstrates critical skill behaviors via video-based modeling
  • It allows participants to practice during role-plays and receive feedback from others
  • It features real life examples and relevant case studies
  • It places emphasis on applying learned behaviors back on the job
  • It is available for either an office (white-collar) or plant (blue-collar) environment
Flexible, Easy to Use Delivery Options
  • Five independent, one-day training modules or as a one-week training program
  • Facilitator-led and self-study versions available
