The Supervisors Transition and Readiness Training program (S.T.A.R.T.) is designed for individuals who are about to, or who recently have, become supervisors. A study by Development Dimensions International revealed that 42 percent of new managers don’t understand what it takes to succeed. S.T.A.R.T. addresses this shortcoming by addressing three critical questions.
What does it mean to be a supervisor?
How can new supervisors make a successful transition from being an individual contributor to being in charge of a unit, a team, or an entire department?
How should new supervisors deal with the most common practical issues they face?
Participants create a Transition Action Plan that outlines specific steps they will take to ensure that their transition is successful, and what long-range skill development options they will pursue.
The Centre is a Joint Powers Authority (JPA), a legal organizational structure, not unlike a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. As a JPA, the California Controller’s Office has designated The Centre as a special district, making The Centre a public sector agency like the many of the clients we serve.
